John Legend’s Version Of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Is A JOKE, Dean Martin’s Daughter Weighs In [Video]
Hollywood has struck again, ruining a good thing with their latest rendition of the Christmas classic “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Singers Kelly Clarkson and John Legend felt the song needed a new tone that takes the Christmas song to an uncomfortable level.
Dean Martin’s daughter commented about the change to the iconic song :
“You do not change the lyrics to the song,” said Martin. “He’s made it more sexual in it with those words that he has just said. It’s absolutely absurd.”
“I think what he’s done is, he’s stealing the thunder from Frank Loesser’s song and from my dad. He should write his own song if he doesn’t like this one, but don’t change the lyrics. It’s a classic, perfect song,” Martin continued.
When asked what father Dean would think, Martin noted that “my dad didn’t care about things like that.”
“[Dean] would say it’s absurd. I think John should’ve just left it alone,” Martin added.
On Friday, the two “Voice” coaches dropped their collaboration, a modernized version of the Christmas classic — fully of reworked lines, in light of the original’s increasingly controversial lyrics.
In the original tune, which has been covered by many artists since its debut, a female sings: “I really can’t stay,” to which a man responds: “But baby, it’s cold outside.” In another part of a song, a woman is heard singing lines like “Say what’s in this drink?”, “The answer is no” and “I’ve gotta get home.”
Though the original song was released in 1944, factors such as the #MeToo movement have led some modern-day listeners to question the original’s lyrical content.
This is nothing new Hollywood and liberals are constantly changing the classics and trying to make them more PC, but in the rendition, they seem to have made the song less appropriate for Christmas.
Listen to it for yourself:
They kind of killed the playfulness that the original has. It’s not really Christmas friendly. The original is flirty this new one is just overly sexual.
