Three Versions of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” are Climbing the Charts
If you’re pro-“Baby, It’s Cold Outside”, then you’ll be happy to hear that three versions of the song are climbing the charts.
They are: Dean Martin’s version from 1959 . . . Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone’s interpretation from the “Elf”soundtrack in 2003 . . . and a version recorded by Idina Menzel and Michael Buble in 2014.
These were the three largest gainers of ANY songs on “Billboard’s” latest Holiday Digital Song Sales chart . . . with Dean’s version jumping from #23 to #2. It hasn’t been this high since it went to #1 in 2011. Overall, it jumped 257%.
Idina and Michael jumped 165%, and Zooey and Leon saw a 130% increase.
Several versions have also seen an increase in streaming, including Dean Martin . . . Idina and Michael . . . and a 2016 version by Brett Eldredge and Meghan Trainor.
(Whatever the case, if you’re a supporter of this song, at least you know WILLIAM SHATNER’s on your side.)
