In 1944, American songwriter Frank Loesser wrote the infamous the duet, "Baby, It's Cold Outside." This often controversial cat-and-mouse song has long been a favorite as well as a study of consent, couple dynamics, and the sheer pleasure of bantering back and forth with an overeager paramour.
One of our favorite performances features a vocal duet with Broadway sensation Idina Menzel (also well-known for her role as the voice of Elsa in Disney's "Frozen") and the classic crooner Michael Bublé. The song, originally recorded for Menzel's "Holiday Wishes" album (released Oct. 10), is a clean cut version of the tune, with altered lyrics perfect for the pint-size performers who take the starring roles in the music video.
The scene opens inside the elevator of a classic (and classy) hotel and follows young British actors Emily Carey and Harry Collett, who make an adorable pair for the song.
Strictly a seasonal, rather than yet another Christmas ditty to be played on repeat before Thanksgiving, "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Menzel and Bublé is just the right kind of song to bring on a heavy dose of holiday spirit, and the classy music video only adds to its appeal.
"So cute! Bublé and Menzel are a great pair for this wintertime classic," one YouTube viewer commented.
"Love it! It's definitely a double shot of awesome sauce," said another.
"Baby, the cold never bothered me anyway!" a third said, in reference to Menzel's "Frozen" character.
