A song already ordered

I was driving home from dropping off Chris for his last class before Thanksgiving Break (yes, I do take good care of youngest son).
There are 2, yes TWO! radio stations in the area already playing Christmas music.
One is handy in the car’s punch buttons, so I left it going.
On came a really nice song, a man and a woman flirting back and forth about it’s cold outside.  So pretty that I wanted to pull over to listen all the better.

Miracle of Miracles, the announcer told us the song title and who the singers are!  Baby, It’s Cold Outside

As soon as I got home, I had to come look. 
  Lou Rawls album Seasons 4 U

It might be on any of his other holiday albums, but I liked the idea that this one has more than Christmas music.  I clicked all the proper buttons to buy a good used cd.
The woman is Dianne Reeves. I am quite tempted to get a couple of hers.

The song is also listed on a James Taylor album.  Junie likes it

Ah, wishes and money and dreams of the holiday season.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    I knew the song by the title. Oldie goldie. If ya like Barry Manilow, he does a rendition, too.

    Personally I love the rendition of “Baby Its Cold Outside” by Leon Redbone and actress Zooey Deschanel…you hear it at the end of the movie “Elf”…Redbone is great, but Zooey has a really smooth voice!

    My fave Christmas albums are by Nat King Cole, Burl Ives, a good rendition of Handel’s “Messiah” and Vince Guaraldi…though I really like what I have heard of Sarah McLachlan’s Christmas recording and I love anything that is weird, uptempo and zany!
