The weather outside is…actually not that frightful for mid-November. Still, that doesn’t mean that the holiday season isn’t lurking around the corner. Though it may seem a bit premature to start thinking about the impending holiday season, there are those early birds who have been dreaming of a white Christmas since November 1st. Singers Timothy Bloom and V. Bozeman are here to help them ease into the holiday spirit with their take on the classic, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
For the duo’s version, they maintain the coy, flirtatious vibe of the popular 1944 original. Though we’ve witnessed their powerful voices before on past duets like “Til The End of Time,” the frequent collaborators dial it back a bit, trading in the big notes for the subtlety of seduction. The mood is kept light-hearted and fun thanks to the song’s ragtime-esque pacing. And just like their first holiday collabo, “Christmas Without U,” Bloom and Bozeman stray away from the more traditional sounds of the holiday music like jingle bells, instead opting for a sound that could survive long after the last gift has been unwrapped.
Quirky and festive, Bloom and Bozeman’s take on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” provides the perfect answer to settle the debate of how soon is too soon for holiday music. By taking this classic and injecting it with an entirely new sound, the duo manages to find a happy medium that won’t leave you feeling bombarded as the impending season approaches.
