Obviously, Sayyib never went western as a young man.

"Baby, It's Cold Outside" is a very, very dirty song. It is pure predatory sleaze. In it there is not to be found a single tender, committed, reciprocal, loving gesture. It is musical pornography. It is revolting.

The version by Brian Setzer and the elderly Ann-Margret is especially disturbing. It should be avoided whenever possible.

This said, I am resonably sure that Dean Martin never womped my Mom so don't anybody go saying I'm all biased and that I've got emotional issues and all that.

Because I don't.

P.S. I am also fairly certain that Brian Setzer never womped my Mom, either.

Mark Steyn - The dance was a church social. And the feverish music was "Baby, It's Cold Outside," written by Frank Loesser and sung by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban in the film "Neptune's Daughter.

Well if the song was being played on a record player it was more likely this version of 'Baby Its Cold Outside' by Margaret Whiting & Johnny Mercer.

Here are the lyrics.

I refuse to take the blame for any terrorist acts committed by Bissage after he clicks on the links above.

Filthy and very much a justification for the resultant comeuppance. All this time I thought it was economic.

And yeah if we guys just kept our women behind veils and in the house, killed or multilated any whom we thought might have threatened our honor and confined our non marital sexual activities to hairless boys to avoid it being classified as homosexual activity, much less sexual activity, we'd be where they are.

The Ricardo Montalban/al Qaeda connection.

Don't forget the possible Jerry Lewis/Lee Harvey Oswald connection.

One theory is that after hearing this 1961 duet Oswald decided to target President Kennedy.

My favorite version is from Leon Redbone & Zooey Deschanel.

Eating lunch at a Madison Panera a few days after 9-11, in walks Leon Redbone who was performing in Madison that evening. He was sitting near our table and I overheard him talking with his lunch companion, something like "Osama yo Mama", as if they were trying to come up with a lyric.

jdeeripper - clever.

ICE160 - As fascinating as Leon Redbone is a coveted campus troubador artiste since the 70s, he had no connection to the greatest one-hit wonder song ever, "Come and get your love", by the authentic redbone band "Redbone".
A strike against him, in my book. Despite being a superb entertainer - saw him at Yale - no standout anthem like Redbone managed.

The first time I ever heard the song was when Sigourney Weaver and Buster Poindexter did it on Saturday Night Live in 1986.

That's not a filthy song. It's a Love song. The Brotherhood of muslims was terrified that a man might fall under the spell of Love. Love is associated with Forgiveness and Mercy, both of which are ideas despised by Faithful Moslems. But I reckon ole Hillary can handle them with her tough negotiating style like she handled the Obama campaign.

Tragically, first thing I thought of was Sayyib when you linked of the Montalban/Williams version earlier.

There's probably some tragedy in the fact that the line "Say, what's in this drink?" has different connotations today.

I love the Zooey/Leon version best, too.

And of course, it is a very dirty song, but not predatory.

Why does her hair go from looking swell in one verse to needing a comb in the next?

How the world has changed.

(1) So anyway, one afternoon I come home from school early.

That guy who reminds me of Ricardo Montalban guy is there and he’s bossing my Mom around, kind of like this right here.

I stay hidden but pretty soon I hear him slapping her around and he says, “Admit it, bitch, you want it bad.”

Then I could hear the bedsprings squeaking and my Mom’s yelling, “Do me! Do me rough, you masterful stud! Make me feel like a real woman with your enormous organ, unlike Bissage’s father who has a moderately small penis just like William Shatner, who may be on the A-list but he's too gentle and he'll never be able to give a woman what she really wants!”

As one might imagine, that all came as something of a disquieting surprise to a sensitive young boy.

(2) Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way . . . let’s get to the whole point of this . . . which is . . . A TERRORIST ATTACK!!!!!

(3) I blame jdeeripper.
