First of all, these two in a duet -- Fabulous! They sound phenomenal together and I hope they'll do a whole album. But if you don't love the revised rendition of the classic that is 'Baby, it's Cold Outside,' you are not alone.

There's a lot of criticism of it on the interwebs today and maybe it's a slippery slope. If we're going to start revising songs that some find offensive then there's a whole lot of rap and hip hop lyrics that are going to need re-tooling.
