The Problem Lyrics of "Baby Smooth Cold Outside"
"Baby Smooth Cold Outside" was originally written in 1944 by Frank Lloser. The funny thing about the song is that it is actually an Oscar winner. He won Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1949 after starring in the movie The Daughter of Neptune. Although it may initially seem like a harmless rhyme and rhyme song, once you actually immerse yourself in the text, there are some problematic aspects that have caused controversy in recent years. Many radio stations even pulled it off the air.
Some of the critical parts include:
I wish I knew how (your eyes are like a starlight)
Breaking this spell (I'll take your hat, your hair looks swollen)
I should to say, no, no, no, sir (I mean, if I'm moving closer?)
At least I'll say I tried (what's the point of hurting my pride?)
I really can't stay (oh , baby, don't hold it)
But baby, it's cold outside
I just have to go (but baby, it's cold outside)
The answer is no (but baby, it's cold outside)
our welcome was (how lucky you were to kill)
So nice and warm (look out the window at dawn)
A changing song for a changing society
define a specific year in which more people started thinking different for the lyrics, but it's worth noting, it appeared on the list through Washington City Paper back in 2009, a few years before the "Me Too" movement and the height of the Bill Cosby scandal.
Frank Louser's daughter, Susan Losser, actually raised Cosby's fault for the new song controversy.
“Bill Cosby ruined it for everyone. Way before #Me Too, from time to time I would hear people call it a date rape song. I will be annoyed because this is a song my father wrote about him and my mother singing at parties. But ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I've been constantly hearing about rape, "she told NBC News last year. "I absolutely understand [the controversy]. But I think it would be good if people looked at the song in the context of time. This was written in 1944. "
