  • Chalk and Cheese #20: Atomic Kitten vs. Eartha Kitt

    15 Oct 2006, 10:43 by Orange_Anubis

    What we have here is innocence versus experience, like William Blake if he'd used to be in OMD. Atomic Kitten always tried to project a wholesome sort of of an image, which never quite rung true as they always carried the distinct whiff of being slappers, while Eartha Kitt celebrated her own sexuality at every turn, but somehow seemed more of a lady overall.

    I say 'celebrated' and 'seemed' when talking about Eartha Kitt, but my use of the past tense is premature. Most famous perhaps for her stint as Catwoman in the 60s Batman series, she's still touring today, at an unconfirmed age believed to be approaching 80. It's her signature song I Want to Be Evil that I'm interested in today. Delivered originally in a lazy drawl, like most of her early material it became cultish following her live performances. The 1965 recording 'Live At The Plaza' is a huge favourite in my workplace; Eartha performs improbably in languages including Japanese, Romanian, a Philippines dialect and Urdu, cackling and barking throughout.
