My Merry Christmas Announcement

Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

"Baby It's Cold Outside" is a good choice to discuss next, as there is indeed multiple versions of that! I don't neccesarily have to be the one to toss out the song choice, but I do want to make sure each song is given a few days to be discussed (I love to hear everyone's opinions).

So for "Baby It's Cold Outside...", there's a version by Rod Stewart from just a few years back that I'm actually pretty fond of (and I usually can't stand Rod Stewart!)

It must be his duet partner, Dolly Parton, that makes it work for you.

That was Dolly Parton? Geez, how could I have overlooked that...yeah, that must've been why I enjoyed it.

I kinda like Ringo Starr's version... he even makes a mistake in the lyrics and corrects himself and they left it in the final cut... reminds me of caroling when at least someone couldn't remember the lyrics and messed up everyone else... good times...

I'd second that its a tight race between Autry and Ives.
