“Baby It’s Cold Outside” Really?

It started at a radio station in Cleveland and now Rogers Media, Bell Media and the taxpayer funded CBC have all jumped on the bandwagon.

The issue? A song that was written in 1944, won an Oscar for Best Original Song in the movie Neptune’s Daughter and became a holiday classic.

The song is “Baby It’s Cold Outside”.

It has been covered  countless times by artists such as Ray Charles and Betty Carter, Idina Menzel and Michael Buble, and Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart.

The song has come under scrutiny by a handful of people of late and that scrutiny has been amplified by the #MeToo movement.

Some say that the lyrics are inappropriate as one singer tries to persuade the other to stay inside and not venture out into a snowstorm.

The song remains on the playlist at the Jewel 106.7fm.
