.................but us older guys remember doing the bump & grind to this! So, just a nostalgic trip down memory lane............ Why you ask? She just died today at the age of 81 and the news sent me back in time to a place that actually was a good place for me then...............

Loc: in my own world in pittsburgh,...
eartha [along with barbra et al] spoke deeply to my little victim ron. their pathos and pain will resonate thru time and beyond..........

I've posed for pictures with Iv'ry Soap,
I've petted stray dogs, and shied clear of dope
My smile is brilliant, my glance is tender
But I'm noted most for my unspoiled gender

I've been made Miss Reingold, though I never touch beer,
And I'm the person to whom they say, "Your sweet, My Dear."
The only etchings I've seen have been behind glass,
And the closest I've been to a bar, is at ballet class.

Prim and proper, the girl who's never been cased,
I'm tired of being pure and not chased.
Like something that seeks it's level
I wanna go to the devil.

Refrain
I wanna be evil, I wanna spit tacks
I wanna be evil, and cheat at jacks
I wanna be wicked, I wanna tell lies
I wanna be mean, and throw mud pies

I want to wake up in the morning
with that dark brown taste
I want to see some dissipation in my face
I wanna be evil, I wanna be mad
But more that that I wanna be bad

I wanna be evil, and trump an ace,
Just to see my partner's face.
I wanna be nasty, I wanna be cruel
I wanna be daring, I wanna shoot pool

And in the theatre
I want to change my seat
Just so I can step on
Everybody's feet

I wanna be evil, I wanna hurt flies
I wanna sing songs like the guy who cries
I wanna be horrid, I wanna drink booze
And whatever I've got I'm eager to lose

I wanna be evil, little evil me
Just as mean and evil as I can be

To me this has a lot of bearing...
I held such deep regard for Eartha Kitt because she was a victim and survivor in life. She was gritty, talented and absolutely relative to my connecting to her story. She lived a hard life in spite of public perception. I recall a few interviews she gave and she revealed her personal pain, her rejection and the judgments held about her in so many levels of her life....but she was fierce and so strong. I mostly remember that and then her wonderfully predictable disco hits in the 80's that helped me escape over and over as I tried to escape in her music. It is not something I can put into better words but I loved her. She is a SHERO of sorts. I loved her difference and her talent and I swear I always felt some connection I cannot truly explain but I respect her and always will. So you see, to me at least she is VERY relative and Rons post showed me another slice of her I never saw before.
Thank you both,
Dan

Dan,

I apologize to you if I seemed to infer that MS Eartha herself had no relevance and if that somehow seemed to diminish what she contributed to your life and well-being.

A great many of us remember her fondly and were given to escape to a better place, if only momentarily, because of how , not only what, she gave to us.

I'm hoping your trip down memory lane with her is as rewarding as mine has been these last twenty four hours............

Hey Joel,
No no no... I think you misinterpreted my post or meaning. If you re-read my post, you'll see I loved her and found her to be a source of strength. She was hope and her music was often fantasy and a place to slip away to.

Sometimes we choose the wrong words or are perhaps reticent about saying something we feel. I just wanted to support you because it is relevant what you posted.
Dan
