Time to rethink holiday lyrics, such as Baby It’s Cold Outside

"Bill Cosby is ruining it for everybody", Susan Loesser said.

The fight over the song heated up in Denver when KOSI, a radio station that plays exclusively holiday tunes this time of year, banned the song, only to quickly bring it back.

The famous song, written in 1944, takes the form of a duet, with a man trying to convince a protesting woman to stay over because it's "cold outside".

"I personally love performing "Baby It's Cold Outside" and will continue to do so", Deanna told FOX News.

Star 102 Cleveland in Ohio, USA was the first to stop playing the Academy Award-winning song, with local media reporting "that listeners said the song was inappropriate and at odds with the #MeToo movement", BBC reported on 1 December 2018. "Way before #MeToo, I would hear from time to time people call it a date rape song".

King continued, "I think you can look at anything and read something into it these days, and I just don't think that was the case when they wrote that song and the intent of the song".

"Please count me in the 90 percent", King said after the segment.

According to our partners at WISC-TV, Mid-West Family Broadcasting Program Director Fletcher Keyes said he took all versions of "Baby It's Cold Outside" out of rotation on Hank AM 1550 and 97.7 FM Monday. "People used to say "what's in this drink" as a joke".

"I totally get what you're saying about the context", he acknowledged, "but that powerful reaction has to be dealt with". It was a different time'. Susan says connecting the song to the MeToo movement is off the mark. "But ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time".
