Kitten On the Keys – “Pretty Princess Day” [Rug Burn Records]
stingray 1/14/2005 A Library
Kitten on the Keys Is Suzanne Ramsey, a San Francisco based one woman burlesque show. Live she performs on a piano. On this album she uses piano, toy piano, Wurlitzer, and Ukulele. Her voice is a bit ‘cute little girl? that belies the bawdy nature of her lyrics.
Tracks 3, 6, 8, 16, and 18: Covers of 30’s-40’s style standards.
Track 11: Cover of an anonymous 1929 song called ‘My Girl’s Pussy?. The meaning of ‘pussy? here is, of course, intentionally vague.
Track 4: Cover of some new-agey ballad. I’d skip this one.
Track 1: A brief cover of ‘Anarchy in the UK?, Betty Boop style.
Everything Else: Originals. The lyrics are very burlesque style, often filled with double entendres (and quite a few single entendres). They mostly deal with various and sundry fetishes, such as furries (5 and 14), nurses (12), feet (2) and panty sniffing (17). A lot of funny stuff! Play it!
Language: The only unequivocal bad word is ‘shitty? on Track 7. However, the following tracks contain pretty graphic descriptions of genitalia and/or sex, even if they don’t have swearing, per se: 2, 5, 9, 14, 15, 17.
