Radio station drops Baby it's Cold Outside from Christmas playlist

The only station in the Denver market exclusively playing Christmas music during the holiday season will no longer play "Baby, It's Cold Outside".

"This song IS inappropriate, but I also understand it was written in the 40s". The female vocalist sings, "I really can't stay", to which the male singer responds, "But baby, it's cold outside".

Last month one twitter user said in light of the #MeToo movement, the song should be removed from all holiday playlists "once and for all".

When the woman says "the answer is no" the man responds: "But baby, it's cold outside".

"Baby It's Cold Outside", which was written by "Guys and Dolls" songwriter Frank Loesser in 1944, was not suitable in the age of #MeToo, said the station's hosts in Cleveland Ohio.

The lyrics read like a conversation between a man and a woman with the woman saying she must leave, while the man insists she stays. "'The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place".

Whether the song is controversial or not or should be played can continue to be debated, but there's one thing we can all agree on - and that's that the version with Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews from Catatonia is a banger.

Her other lines include: "Say, what's in this drink?" "The song seems odd now not cuz it's about coercing sex but about a woman who knows her reputation is ruined if she stays".

"It really pushed the line of consent", Cleveland Rape Crisis Center President and CEO Sondra Miller told Fox News".

Anyway, Christmas FM has since stated via Twitter that the song wasn't banned at all, but merely that the song itself didn't resonate with listeners and was dropped a year ago as a result.
