Radio stations ban "Baby, It's Cold Outside" in the Me Too era

Deana Martin Celebrates

"Way before #MeToo, I would hear from time to time people call it a date rape song".

The daughter of the composer behind "Baby, It's Cold Outside" has blamed the recent controversy surrounding the Christmas classic's predatory lyrics on actor Bill Cosby.

'Baby, It's Cold Outside, ' has been covered by Michael Bublé, Idina Menzel, James Taylor, Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews, but this year Star 102 Cleveland radio banned all versions of song from its Christmas playlist.

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.

She noted that she's particularly aggravated about the backlash because "it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties".

"It wasn't really our decision".

'People used to say, 'What's in this drink?' as a joke, ' Loesser explained.

Loesser did say she understands why the song has taken on its current connotation in the post-Weinstein era, noting, "Absolutely I get it".

"This song is not about an abuse of power, it is about flirtation and that is how flirtation was in those days", Susan said, adding that she doesn't want the song connected to the #MeToo movement. You know, this drink is going straight to my head so what's in this drink?

The song is about a woman inside a man's home, and she says it's time to go home, but the man tries convincing her to stay by saying it's cold outside. The female singing the first part (with male singer in parentheses). "This song is included in his very successful 1959 "Winter Romance" album and I'm very proud that it has become an evergreen favorite that is played every holiday season", Deana told FOX News.
