We fixed “Baby It’s Cold Outside”… with Star Wars!

What if “Baby It’s Cold Outside” wasn’t the creepiest Christmas song of all time, and was instead a love story… set in the Star Wars universe? I mean, when you think of Christmas, you think of snow. And when you think snow… you think of Hoth. Don’t you?

We created this monster/masterpiece with Seattle nerd-rock dreamboats Kirby Krackle. It was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard they would be joining us for the Holiday show we did in Seattle a couple of weeks ago. I told Kyle (frontman for KK), he made magic. Then they brought me into their studio to record with their producer (and a Wookie?) – we recorded – and I’m super happy with how it turned out. Do you like?

  1. Baby, It’s Cold Outside was/is a love song. Written by a man for his wife, and they sang it together as a parting-song to their guests during winter get-togethers. The “date rape” aspects are very much modern interpretations of what were, at the time, common phrases
    (“What’s in this drink?”, “I ought to say no…”) used in contexts that have fallen out of modern use. While I think your version is very cute, please don’t continue contributing to the pollution of what was written as a very lovely and love-filled song, by painting it with modern fears/phrases/context.

    1. I love any Star Wars reference, and maybe it’s BECAUSE of this song’s original context that this works so well. It adds a bit of warmth to the sparing between Han and Leia. And it shows just how much Han is willing to give up to go save the farm boy from far far away. Happy Life Day!
