Music: Annette Hanshaw 1929 - I Wanna Be Bad

Annette Hanshaw (October 18, 1901March 13, 1985) was one of the first great female jazz singers. In the late 1920s she ranked alongside Ethel Waters, Bessie Smith and the Boswell Sisters.
Hanshaw was known as "The Personality Girl," and her trademark was saying "That's all" in a childish voice at the end of many of her records she was renamed Gay Ellis (for sentimental numbers) and Dot Dare or Patsy Young (for her Helen Kane impersonations).

Lyrics -
To be or not to be that is not the question
i decided along ago to be
with me its what to be, make me some suggestion?

Good or bad which is the best for me!
When your after fun and laughter this aggravates you

Some reformer says a warmer climate awaits you
If its naughty to rouge your lips shake your shoulders and twist your hips, let a lady confess i wanna be bad
And if its naughty to Vamp the men,Sleep each morning till after ten then the answer is yes i wanna be bad
This thing of being a Good little goody is all very well what can you do when your loaded with plenty of hell and vigor
When your learning what lips are for if its naughty to ask for more, Let a Lady confess i wanna be Bad!

Baba, dadadada!
dada dui dui dui!

If its naughty to rouge your lips shake your shoulders and twist your hips let a lady confess i wanna be bad, bad girl i do! and if its naughty to vamp the men sleep each morning till after ten, then the answer is yes im gonna be a bad bad girl, while all around me they tell me how terribly naughy i am! Baba be Do!
Nobodys caring and nobodys giving a damn, Sel Credit
If its wrong to let someone take just a little kiss my mistake, let a lady confess, I Wanna Be Bad!

Music: Bessie Smith - I'm Wild About That Thing (1929)

Bessie Smith (jul 9,1892 or apr.15,1894 - sep.26,1937) was Americas most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and '30s.

Smith is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era, and along with Louis Armstrong, a major influence on subsequent jazz vocalists.

As a way of earning money for their impoverished household, Smith and her brother Andrew began performing on the streets of Chattanooga as a duo, she singing and dancing, he accompanying on guitar; their preferred location was in front of the White Elephant Saloon at Thirteenth and Elm streets in the heart of the city's African-American community.

In 1904, her oldest brother, Clarence, covertly left home by joining a small traveling troupe owned by Moses Stokes. "If Bessie had been old enough, she would have gone with him," said Clarence's widow, Maud. "That's why he left without telling her, but Clarence told me she was ready, even then. Of course, she was only a child."

In 1912, Clarence returned to Chattanooga with the Stokes troupe and arranged for its managers, Lonnie and Cora Fisher, to give her an audition. She was hired as a dancer rather than a singer, because the company also included Ma Rainey.

By the early 1920s, Smith had starred with Sidney Bechet in How Come?, a musical that made its way to Broadway, and spent several years working out of Atlanta, Georgia's 81 Theater, performing in black theaters along the East Coast. Following a run-in with the producer of How Come?, she was replaced by Alberta Hunter and returned to Philadelphia, where she had taken up residence. There, she met and fell in love with Jack Gee, a security guard whom she married on June 7, 1923, just as her first recordings were being released by Columbia Records. The marriage was a stormy one, with infidelity on both sides. During the marriage, Smith became the biggest headliner on the black Theater Owners Booking Association ( T.O.B.A.) circuit, running a show that sometimes featured as many as 40 troupers and made her the highest-paid black entertainer of her day. Gee was impressed by the money, but never adjusted to show business life, and especially not Smith's bisexuality. In 1929, when Smith learned of Gee's affair with another performer, Gertrude Saunders, she ended the marriage, but never sought a legal divorce. Smith eventually found a common-law husband in an old friend, Richard Morgan, who was Lionel Hampton's uncle and the antithesis of her husband. She stayed with him until her death.
