Day 17 -- Various, "Baby, It's Cold Outside"

Dean Martin and Doris Day -- "Baby, It's Cold Outside"
Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong -- "Baby, It's Cold Outside"
Marah -- "Baby, It's Cold Outside"

Ok guys, it's the big week, so we're posting Christmas songs I really do like! Here's three awesome versions of one of my absolute favorites -- "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is an age-old primer for dudes in trying to get a lady to make messies with you. And for ladies, it's a primer in how to make it seem like you don't want to make messies, but really do.

Next time, don't bring up your maiden aunt, though, ok? There's a reason she's still single, and she kinda kills the mood. Now put some records on while I pour.

Steve's X-Mas-Factor Rating-O-Matic

Jingle-Jangle Annoyingness Factor (scientific measurement of things like the use of kazoos, animal sounds, or Karen Carpenter, and/or time spent discussing elves)

10 (out of 10) -- Ain't one thing annoying about any of these.

Where's That Gift Receipt? Factor (rates whether one would actually listen to this song again)

10 (out of 10) -- I just wish I was allowed to listen to it all year long.

That's the Spirit Factor (rates how much the song actually has to do with Christmas)

5 (out of 10) -- Unfortunately, it has NOTHING to do with Christmas. Dammit.

Total Score: 8.333
Christmas Present Equivalent: Optimus Prime

Say, what's in this drink??

NOTHING (in all caps!) describes how much it has to do with Christmas and it still gets as much as a 5/10 on the TTS factor?

Yeah, that whole date-rape aspect of the song always was a head-scratcher.

I impliedly applied the Frosty test.
