Holiday Song of the Day “Baby its Cold Outside”

The Holiday Song of the Day today is for Kathleen.

Louis Armstorn and Velma Middleton improvising will make you smile and then LOL as more ad-libbing ensues!

“Baby Its Cold Outside,” with words and music by Frank Loesser, premiered in 1944 when he and his wife Lynn Garland sang it at their housewarming party, signifying to guests that it was time to go home.

My favorite version–recorded by Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting in 1949.
