Idina Menzel & Michael Buble Cast Adorable Kids In Their “Baby It’s Cold Outside” Cover

Baby Its Cold Outside
Future Music Stars?

Idina Menzel and Michael Buble recorded a cover of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” together, and instead of starring in the music video themselves, they enlisted two precious kids to perform in their place. With the help of some fierce dance skills and updated lyrics that are slightly less creepy than the originals, these two can get even the Grinchiest among us at least a teensy bit onboard with the oncoming madness of the holiday season.

JGL & Lady Gaga Get Cozy

Okay, so it’s probably the rapiest seasonal tune, but I couldn’t help but get a case of the warm and fuzzies watching Lady Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a rather random duo, singing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” from ”Lady Gaga And The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular.” (Let me be clear — I didn’t watch this live. I was too busy putting on my fat pants and making a food baby on Thanksgiving to watch TV.) [The Mary Sue]

A Less Rapey Version Of The Xmas Favorite

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is the most squirmy of Christmas songs. It’s supposed to be a cute duet between a woman and a man who wants her to stay longer, clearly written during a time period when a woman’s “reputation” for not having casual sex truly mattered. As such, the lyrics are pretty date rapey, with the woman constantly protesting that she wants to leave (“Say, what’s in this drink?”, “I ought to say no, no, no, sir, At least I’m gonna say that I tried”) and the man trying to wheedled and guilt trip her into staying (“Mind if I move in closer? What’s the sense in hurting my pride?”, “How can you do this thing to me?”). Some more modern duets flip the genders in the song as if that’s supposed to make it sound less aggressive. But I’m more into this cover by someone named Chase Gregory who covers “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by rewriting the man’s lyrics entirely, with Chase singing both parts. Instead of wheedling the woman to stay, Chase’s dude is happy to escort her out and assure her it’s okay if she wants to go home. It’s pretty funny stuff! [YouTube]
