what, are the Barenaked Ladies fighting over who does the best version of "Baby It's Cold Outside"? We have a version with Ed Robertson and Holly Cole

I guess I'll hold out for Tyler Stewart to do it with... I dunno, Alanis Morrisette?

but now you've put an Eric Idle song in my head.

Maybe they're having a contest. The Barenaked Ladie with the best "Baby It's Cold Outside" rendition gets a free Pocket Fisherman and a year's supply of soup!

"Every July, peas grow there."

Steven Page and ... Rita McNeil????

That's ... something.

(I'll always think of this story when I hear Rita's name, her name sounds somewhat similar to fellow country star Reba McEntire, but the looks couldn't be more different. I remember on the first date with a girl many years ago, who I learned was a country music fan, I was fascinated by her red hair (I've always been a sucker for redheads) and I remarked that she "looked like Rita McNeil" (meaning, of course, Reba McEntire). I never heard from her again.)

Just ran across this version of "Baby It's Cold Outside" the other day, on an information sharing site on the Web which shall not be named. I really enjoyed their rendition, but the download was less than optimal from an audio standpoint. Know where I can find a good, even legitimate copy?

I don't know. I may have the same copy you have. Mine is of Steve and Rita performing the song before a live audience, there's some noticeable tape hiss, and the clip starts with some incomplete chatter, as follows:

Rita: "...for the tour."
Steven: "Thank you."
Rita: "Now, um, you've chose [sic] this song for us to do, it's a lot of fun, it's an old classic, 'Baby It's Cold Outside'. So let's do it."
