You guys, I had to share this cover with you. If you don't know the due Karmin... you should. Their names are Nick and Amy and they started out by doing covers on YouTube. Very quickly, like in a year's time, they were offered a deal which they took.
But after an album or so, they broke up with their record because they wanted to be more honest in their music. They are now back to their old YouTube channel as independent artists and their holiday cover of Baby it's Cold Outside is playing on a loop in my room.
Seriously, they made this song so haunting and beautiful and the choice to take a song traditionally sang as a duet and make a single person singing it makes it sound like an internal fight instead of a (somewhat creepy) man trying to seduce his companion to stay longer (I mean, she literally asks "what's in this drink?" at some point. That sounds kind of dark).
It's like we're hearing this person's thoughts, how she is struggling against herself. The angel and the devil on one's shoulder, and the devil is winning against the rationality.
And the darker melody....
