Baby it's cold
Baby it's cold outside
Okay fine, just another drink then
That took a lot of convincing!

"Baby, It's Cold Outside" has been considered a holiday classic ever since it won the Academy Award for best original song in the film "Neptune's Daughter."

 confounded CBC Radio said Tuesday it's joining at least two other broadcasters in the country, Rogers Media and Bell Media, in pulling the controversial Christmas favourite out of their rotations this year.

The move comes as the duet, written back in 1944, faces renewed scrutiny over what some say are inappropriate lyrics in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

CBC spokeswoman Nicola Makoway said the public broadcaster would remove the song at midnight Tuesday with "no plans to play it going forward."

Earlier this week, Cleveland radio station WDOK-FM announced it would no longer play the song in response to listener feedback. Some took issue with lyrics where one singer is trying to persuade the other to stay inside, with exchanges that include, "What's in this drink?" and "Baby, don't hold out."

Bell Media spokesman Scott Henderson said the company, which runs two 24-hour Christmas stations in Vancouver and Ottawa, chose not to include the Christmas tune on its playlists this year.

Ludicrous behaviour on an old song - in my opinion humanity has been going in decline with all these PC frenzies!
