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

NEW YORK- NOVEMBER 12 Singer Deana Martin performs during the after party presented by CAVU

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.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 revealed for Nintendo Switch
The new game features the same kind of action-RPG gameplay that made the franchise such a hit over a decade ago. This time, players may choose the traditional top-down perspective or a more zoomed in, "heroic" view.

Existing players who bought the game before its free-to-play status should be upgraded to Prime status, according to Valve. Grabbing wads off cash off of the ground (or in locked safes that you have to destroy with C4) feels out of place so far.

Obsidian announces The Outer Worlds, a true open-ended sci-fi RPG
It also seems to feature companions and first-person shooter combat that again doesn't seem all that dissimilar to Fallout . The game is not an open-world RPG, but rather a series of interconnected, smaller worlds and locations.

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".
