I Want To Be Bad  performed by  Blossom Dearie  (196?)
Composed by Desylva- Brown- Henderson
Arranged by Ben Bagley
From: USA
Recommended by FlyingDutchman1971 [profile] on Sunday 27th October 2002

Ben Bagley gathered some of his friends together back in the 1960's and put together compilation records of his favorite composers. Blossom Dearie was featured on several of these albums. One of the best tracks she recorded for Mr. Bagley was a great jazz song from the 1920's called 'I Want To Be Bad'. A wonderful song from the era of the flapper, she gleefully breezes thru lyrics such as, "If it's naughty to let a male read you like a book, and in BRAILLE, let a lady confess I want to be bad!" The song is ripe with double entendres and Blossom carries it off with a wink and a nudge. This is Blossom at her best!!

from DeSylva, Brown, & Henderson Revisited (Painted Smiles PS 1351), available on CD (Painted Smiles PSCD-144)
