Baby It’s Cold Outside, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme – 25DoCM

Love this song.

This is easily the best version. I’ve heard 2 dozen of them now, and none of them are as well-acted or orchestrated. They’re great singers too.

I know that among the few people I know that would know who these people are they’re kind of a punchline, but seriously. Best version of a song. And hey, they were married, so it diffuses the creepy undertones AND overtones of the song.

Oh, and the worst version is Dean Fucking Martin’s version, where he replaces the lead, female vocal with THREE backup singers in order to showcase his own voice better. It’s sleezy, and not in a good way. Feh.

    Gasp! Someone besides me who doesn’t groan with disgust as soon as the stores start playing Christmas carols? Huzzah!

    I just picked up a few Christmas tunes yesterday on eMusic (I accidentally left my subscription on after having signed up for some freebies), actually: Brian Setzer Orchestra’s “Jingle Bell Rock,” Ella Fitzgerald’s “Winter Wonderland” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” a few of the “Christmas with Weezer” tunes, and a couple of others.

    Actually, I’m a huge addict of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” in particular– I’m always on the lookout for versions where people sang the original, more depressing lyrics. I just love the “from now on we’ll have to muddle through somehow” line when sung.
