A Cleveland Ohio radio station has garnered international media attention by pulling "Baby it's Cold Outside" from it's seasonal playlist, citing #MeToo conflicts.

I'm surprised it took this long, interestingly, I still hear "Every Breath You take- -I'll be watching you- (Sting).

Regardless this version of the "Baby it's cold outside" might just be ok.
 Certainly a different take on the song.

Too many guitars to list here.

This stuff drives me crazy. Too "woke" to be sane. If you don't like a song do what we used to do. Change the station. Sheesh.

One could say, if you don’t like the programming choices, change the station...

In general, I don’t like the choices of most (all?) pop music stations, so I plug in my phone and play my own playlist...  or listen to the news station of my choice (NPR).

Lol. Media companies live for publicity, they got some.

Good for them. 

And, even though I love James Taylor and Natalie Cole,
their version has always creeped me out.

I've never thought of the lyrics as anything other than pretty normal hormonal banter. I'm sure the intent was no more or less. One doesn't have to look too far down the dial to find examples much more worthy of protest.

This old version demonstrates that this "dance" has been going on since time began...

What a horrible world you must be living in if songs are a thing you find time to protest against. These people either have one channel radios or they are complete morons.  I call 'em like I see 'em.  I suggest they don't listen to this one.
