Daughter of 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' Songwriter Says He'd Be Horrified Over

Dean Martin's daughter says she's not going to stop singing the holiday classic "Baby It's Cold Outside" even though the song has been getting an "icy" reputation, according to FOX News. San Francisco radio station KOIT received negative responses after playing the song recently.

Loesser says that her dad "would be furious" about the controversy, adding, "People used to say, 'What's in this drink?' as a joke".

"Now, I do realize that when the song was written in 1944, it was a different time, but now while reading it, it seems very manipulative and wrong", he said.

She noted that she's particularly aggravated about the backlash because "it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties".

"I think it would be good if people looked at the song in the context of the time", she said.

The only big omission from the squad is defender Jesus Vallejo , who has struggled with injury since joining the club last season. The fan wrote: " Solari celebrating Isco's goal", alongside a picture of a tearful face with a happy mask on top.

Her co-hosts were less sold on the song's innocence. "Back then it didn't mean you drugged me".

The 1944 song is about a man trying to convince his date to stay with him a little longer. Baby It's Cold Outside is one of my favorite songs.

The fate of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and its radio play is still up in the air.

KOSI 101.1 in Colorado, marketed as "Denver's Holiday Station", originally pulled the song due to listener complaints but has since reversed its decision.

Local Cleveland radio station WDOK Christmas 102.1 pulled the song from its around-the-clock rotation of Christmas music last week after receiving a call from a listener who suggested it is inappropriate in 2018. Other lyrics like "say, what's in this drink?" have also raised eyebrows. Though some say it eerily relates to Bill Cosby drugging women's drinks, Susan Loesser said the time frame of the song's text is more geared for those in the 1940's and 50's.
