Baby, It's Cold Outside

"Baby, It's Cold Outside" is of my favourite holiday songs. Though it's thought of as a classic Christmas tune, there's nothing about Christmas in the lyrics. It's more of a winter song. The idea of a Christmas song dedicated to seduction does have a certain appeal. Christopher Walken should really do a cover as his Saturday Night Live character "The Continental".

Tom Jones & Cerys from Catatonia - Baby, It's Cold Outside (from Reload and Now! The Christmas Album)

Carmen McRae and Sammy Davis Jr - Baby, It's Cold Outside (from UltraLounge - Christmas Cocktails, Part 3. This version might be the closest thing we have to a Christopher Walken cover for now, and that's not a dis)

The Brian Setzer Orchestra and Ann-Margaret - Baby, It's Cold Outside (from Boogie Woogie Christmas)

Ray Charles and Betty Carter - Baby, It's Cold Outside (from The Spirit of Christmas)

Dean Martin - Baby, It's Cold Outside (from Christmas With the Rat Pack)

Vanessa Willians and Bobby Caldwell - Baby, It's Cold Outside (from Silent Night, Soulful Night. I hate this version. I don't find it "soulful". I find it "painful")

Holly Cole and Ed Robertson (of Barenaked Ladies) - Baby, It's Cold Outside (from Baby, It's Cold Outside. Nifty)
