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

It's The Most Controversial Time Of The Year...For 'Baby, It's Cold Outside,' At Least

Glenn Anderson, a host at the radio station, says that although the song is from another era, its lyrics feel "manipulative and wrong".

Keyes said there haven't been any complaints about "Baby, It's Cold Outside" to the station, but that the tone of the song in 2018 is different from when it was originally written in the 1940s.

"Ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time".

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

Susan Loesser, the daughter of Broadway legend Frank Loesser, who wrote the song, insisted it's innocent. "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".

"Please count me in the 90 percent", King said after the segment. I would get annoyed because it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties.

Quite a few years ago, with the approach of the holiday season and the bombardment of holiday songs, my youngest brought my attention to the inappropriate lyrics of the old favourite, "Baby It's Cold Outside".

The "CBS This Morning" the co-anchor expressed her affinity for the tune penned in 1944 by Frank Loesser.

"I think it would be good if people looked at the song in the context of the time", she said.

"If we all believe 'no means no, ' how can you play that song?"

After WDOK pulled the song, stations in Cleveland and Colorado also followed suit, sparking a backlash by listeners on social media.

"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. "People used to say "what's in this drink" as a joke".
