It's official. We are living in an insane PC culture right now and some people find today's Countdown Tune risque. Baby It's Cold Outside, compared to the current horrible state of pop music, not to mention rap and other explicit genres, is as tender and sweet as Mary Had a Little Lamb. This year, it is the No. 2 requested song on the radio, right after Silent Night. The best quote concerning this inane controversy is by Dean Martin's daughter - He recorded this great little ditty in 1959.
"I was absolutely flabbergasted: it's just insane. she said of learning about the uproar caused by the song that's been around for more than fifty years. "When I heard it and I said, 'This can't possibly be'... I tweeted. 'I think this is crazy. What do you think?' and then all of a sudden it went viral. - Deana Martin
Thank goodness for some common sense. The song is now played on radio all over. Literally dozens of artists have recorded and performed this great little tune. It was written in 1944 by Frank Loesser as a duet for him to sing with his wife at parties.
So today's song has three versions for you to listen to - NO 5 ON THE 2018 CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN - BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE BY TOM JONES/CERYS MATTHEWS, LYLE LOVETT/KAT EDMUNSON & THE ONE AND ONLY DEAN MARTIN/BACKUP SINGERS.
It's cold outside somewhere. Merry Christmas!!
