‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Gets the Dignified Remake It So Richly Deserves
Christmas is a holiday steeped in tradition, but even the things we love most are not immune from change.
The classic 1944 song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a legendary ditty we all hear during the holidays, but songwriters Lydia Liza and Josiah Lemanski decided to give it a very 2016 spin by reworking the lyrics to reflect the world we live in now.
The iconic “But baby, it’s cold outside” line has morphed into a variety of different onces, including “Baby, I’m fine with that,” “You reserve the right to say ‘no’” and “Hoping you get home safe,” while Liza also innocently asks, “Say, what’s in this drink?”, to which Lemanski replies “Pomegranate LaCroix,” which will appeal to any holiday-celebrating hipster, while also saddening all those egg nog lovers out there.
Check out the orginal song below to see how the two compare.
