well maybe just a half a drink more

This charming rendition of "Baby it's cold outside" sung by Zooey Deschanel and Will Ferrell in the movie Elf is ideal for ringing in the holidays. The piece won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1950 when Ester Williams and Ricardo Montalban performed it in the film Neptune's Daughter. "Baby it's cold outside" was written by Frank Loesser (Guys and Dolls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) in 1944. Loesser premiered the song with his wife at one of their cocktail parties.
