Washington DC and The Holy Land>Is 'Baby its Cold Outside" still part of your holiday rotation?

Well, is it?




DENVER — The only FM station in the Denver market exclusively playing Christmas music during the holiday season will no longer play “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

KOSI 101.1’s program director said that the decision was made based on listeners’ feedback.

“We are aware of the controversy regarding ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ and based on feedback from our listeners we have decided to pull the song from KOSI 101.1,” said Program Director Jim Lawson in an email to FOX31.

In the song, a man is trying to convince a woman to stay with him instead of returning home, citing poor weather. The female vocalist sings, “I really can’t stay,” to which the male singer responds, “But baby, it’s cold outside.”

Other lyrics sung by the woman include: “Say, what’s in this drink?” and “I simply must go … The answer is ‘no.’”

A Cleveland station recently gained national attention when it stopped playing the song, referencing the “Me Too” movement.

Shortly this story was published, KOSI 101.1 posted a poll on its website asking whether the song should be aired.

Could it possibly be made more clear than this?

Not problematic at all. Context. Song written in 1944. It was a colloquialism of that time. Jeepers pal, open your peepers. No need for all the floy floy. Not trying to bust your chops, but the dame in the song is clobbered & wants to stay. And he thinks she's the cat's meow. Here's a nice snippet from an article written by a self-identified "feminist".

So let’s talk about that drink. I’ve discussed solely looking at the lyrics of the song and its internal universe so far, but I think that the line “Say, what’s in this drink” needs to be explained in a broader context to refute the idea that he spiked her drink. “Say, what’s in this drink” is a well-used phrase that was common in movies of the time period and isn’t really used in the same manner any longer. The phrase generally referred to someone saying or doing something they thought they wouldn’t in normal circumstances; it’s a nod to the idea that alcohol is “making” them do something unusual. But the joke is almost always that there is nothing in the drink. The drink is the excuse. The drink is the shield someone gets to hold up in front of them to protect from criticism. And it’s not just used in these sort of romantic situations. I’ve heard it in many investigation type scenes where the stoolpigeon character is giving up bits of information they’re supposed to be protecting, in screwball comedies where someone is making a fool of themselves, and, yes, in romantic movies where someone is experiencing feelings they are not supposed to have.

You have implied that you find the song creepy and you are arguing from the standpoint that the song is creepy. It would be more productive if you engaged in the discussion in this thread about specifically what is or is not creepy in the song. I'd be interested in hearing your opinions about the specifics because I don't share your opinion.
My generation was taught that we can say no at any time without having to convince.
I rarely say no but that's another story.

At any time? Including when he's about to ejaculate?

I'd like to think at that point, the female would at least help the guy out with Tears on Her Belly. I'd aim for the eyeballs, though.

I'm asking if you support those efforts.

You'll either answer, or you won't.

And, it does have something to do with the article. These people wanted and got a ban of a song from a radio station that they found offensive. The same is true about book banning from public libraries.

Any other dots I can help line up for you?
A private radio company that is in to "make money" is equivalent to public libraries? AND a single private radio station choosing not to play a song at the request of listeners is equivalent to public library book ban?

The things you say in boredom. :-)
