Banned song’s meaning
is in ear of the beholder
Re: “Did SF radio station make right move banning controversial Christmas classic?” (Eastbaytimes.com, Dec. 4):
In this #MeToo era, radio station KOIT has banned the song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
My favorite rendition is by Blossom Dearie and Bob Dorough. Look it up on YouTube. In this version, you hear two people who are both attracted to each other. That brings up the question where the lines are drawn between desire, domination, seduction, abuse … .
We are human and all have failings, but who hasn’t been attracted to someone, chosen to not act on it and then regretted it later? Who hasn’t experienced mixed signals in the rituals of romance?
