I wanted to include some more non-Christmas songs (which has been ruined by the fact that the best version I could locate has MERRY CHRISTMAS splashed across it, ARG), so today we have "Baby, It's Cold Outside".
This song is interesting (to me) because, although it's been recorded a number of times, the vocals are always uneven. Either one half of the duet will have a strong voice and the other doesn't; or both will be strong, but they don't match each other. For example, Michael Buble has done a version with Anne Murray, and Harry Connick Jr. has done one with Lee Ann Womack, and although in each case the vocalists are very good... they don't go well with each other. I've listened to at least ten versions, and none of them have it 'right'.
At least in my opinion. ^^;
I'm finding it rather frustrating, as I quite like the song.
So I'll go with the first version I ever heard, which is by Vanessa Williams. Her voice is smooth and lovely... I just which she'd gotten hold of Buble or Connick Jr. to sing it with her. ;)
