Turn it UP Tuesdays: "Baby Its Cold Outside"

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! I Hope you are in the spirit of the season right now and forever!! This week's featured song is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Not as traditional and a lovely duet. I wanted to find a version of the song that you hardly ever hear, or maybe never heard. In my case, this was my first time hearing Ray Charles feat. Nina Simone.

The song is quite a holiday "love story". I would like to dedicate this to all of you who are "Boo'd" up this Holiday Season. Enjoy it while it lasts, and snuggle up to this one. (If you haven't noticed, I was a dj in my past life). This song was originally penned by Loesser in 1944. It has been remade and recorded by several other musical artists throughout the years. Ray Charles recorded his version in 1962, and you know how he gets down. He definitely put his own spin on it, and roughed it up..just the way you like it.
