Baby, It's Cold Outside

For reasons I can’t fully explain, I somehow never heard (maybe never noticed?) the holiday classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” until I saw the great version Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel turned in during the hilarious “naïve peeping elf” scene in Elf. But that neglect has been righted over the past few years as it now stands as one of my favorite Christmas songs. Yes, their version is good, but here are a few of my other favorites.

MP3 :: Baby It’s Cold Outside (Ray Charles & Betty Carter)
(from The Spirit of Christmas. Buy here)

MP3 :: Baby It’s Cold Outside (Marah - Dave Bielenko & Felicia Navidad)
(from A Christmas Kind Of Town. Buy here)

MP3 :: Baby It’s Cold Outside (Louis Armstrong & Velma Middleton)
(from Christmas Through The Years. Buy here)

Heloo - I just wanted to say "hello" and see if anyone of u have heard J.MELLO (justin smith), new pop-singer/rapper from the U.S.? I don't wanna call him a "rapper" b/c he sings some really GORGEUS tunes and his lyrics I haven't heard ANYONE ELSE sing about!!! Anyway, just wanted to share him with all of you. Hope you're having a lovely anb blessed Holiday season! ;-)

Cheers, Jaimie (london, uk)

The Armstrong version is clearly the best, but there's a really good version with Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordon...also a good one by James Taylor and Natalie Cole!

Thanks, I'll have to check them out. I like the Ray Charles version best.

Also one of my favorite christmas songs ever. I was listening to it on repeat today (the Zooey version, even!) and I have to say - it's really kind of creepy! He's so insistent, and then puts alcohol in her drink, keeps saying over and over how delicious her lips look.. and she even says no! I know, I know, it's not really supposed to read that way, but I got some chuckles thinking about it today.
