The classic holiday song "Baby It's Cold Outside", has been pulled from a Madison, Wisconin radio station's airwaves.

Well-known Christmas song Baby it's Cold Outside, written in 1944, forbidden to put on the air members of the radio station Star 102 city of Cleveland, Ohio. Critics say the lyrics describe a date rape scenario and the song no longer deserves a spot on Christmas playlists.

Martin's comments come after various radio stations chose to pull the song, which was first written in 1944 for the romantic comedy film Neptune's Daughter, over claims it promotes date rape and sexual harassment, with its lyrics including Martin asking a woman to spend the night with him.

"I totally get what you're saying about the context", he acknowledged, "but that powerful reaction has to be dealt with".

Quite a few years ago, with the approach of the holiday season and the bombardment of holiday songs, my youngest brought my attention to the inappropriate lyrics of the old favourite, "Baby It's Cold Outside". "But ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time". "It's the decision of our listeners", WDOK midday host Desiray said, adding that the station's listeners help develop the holiday song lineup. "People used to say "what's in this drink" as a joke".

"I think you have to look at the intent of the song, and when you look at the intent, it's - to me - a very flirtatious back-and-forth between the two of them", she continued. Though some say it eerily relates to Bill Cosby drugging women's drinks, Susan Loesser said the time frame of the song's text is more geared for those in the 1940's and 50's.
