Cover of Love Hard: the rom-com soundtrack with Nina Dobrev

Love hard it was just the first in a long line of winter season Netflix original films dedicated to Christmas. The story is that of Natalie, writer of an online column in which she tells readers about her disastrous dates, that she believes she has finally found her happy ending in Josh, a boy she met on Tinder with whom she immediately takes a particular tune between a chat and the other about the best Christmas movies.

When Natalie decides to visit him, she realizes she has been a victim of catfish: Josh is not who he said he was, and this is just the tip of the iceberg of a series of deceptions, misunderstandings and half-truths.

The nice rom-com is accompanied by a soundtrack made up of Christmas carols and some covers sung by the protagonists, but the most interesting song that is sung in Love Hard is a revised and corrected version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside".

The covers of the characters of Love Hard

In addition to the songs that are the background to the scenes of the film, there are others sung by the protagonists of Love Hard: Nina Dobrev, Jimmy O. Yang, Harry Shum Jr. and friends try their hand at the covers of famous Christmas themed hits demonstrating to also have excellent singing skills (actually about Harry Shum Jr. there was no doubt given his role in Glee!) as well as being good actors.

I Would Do Anything for Love

After discovering Josh's deception, Natalie finds herself in the middle of a karaoke night in a pub in which she recognizes Tag, the boy whose photos the protagonist had stolen to put on her Tinder profile. Natalie, at that point, tries to get his attention by performing on a cover of "I Would Do Anything for Love"... it's a pity that the allergic reaction given by a kiwi drink makes her beautiful face unrecognizable.

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing

Owen leads his family in a choir to the notes of the famous Christmas carol entitled "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing". Actors Harry Shum Jr., Baraka May Williams, Kelci Hahn, Rene Ruiz and Brian Brigham delight us with a cheerful and crackling performance under the stars, perfect for the Christmas period.

Maybe Just Go Outside

Not really a cover, but a revised and corrected version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" sung by the characters of Nina Dobrev and Jimmy O. Yang.

The original version of the song carries with it a rather controversial story: composed by Frank Loesser in 1994, it was originally conceived as a duet between husband and wife during the housewarming party. A few years later, in 1948, the song was recorded for the first time for the musical The Daughter of Neptune.

If initially the only problem that was attributed to the song was that of not having a very Christmas lyrics, things changed radically in 2004, when an article in the Canadian National Post (written by Rob McKenzie and Joe Bodolai) accused the passage of being an ode to rape as it told the story of a man who gets a girl drunk to take advantage of her.

Let's read the text below:

I really can't stay

Baby it's cold outside

I gotta go away

Baby it's cold outside

This evening has been

Been hoping that you'd dropped in

So very nice

I'll hold your hands they're just like ice

My mother will start to worry

Beautiful what's your hurry?

My father will be pacing the floor

Listen to the fireplace roar

So really I'd better scurry

Beautiful please don't hurry

Well maybe just a half a drink more

I'll put some records on while I pour

The neighbors might think

Baby it's bad out there

Say what's in this drink?

No cabs to be had out there

I wish I knew how

Your eyes are like starlight now

To break this spell

I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell

why thank you

I ought to say no, no, no sir

Mind if move in closer?

At least I'm gonna say that I tried

What's the sense of hurting my pride?

I really can't stay

Baby don't hold out

Baby it's cold outside

Ah, you're very pushy you know?

I like to think of it as opportunistic

I simply must go

Baby it's cold outside

The answer is no

But baby it's cold outside

The welcome has been

How lucky that you dropped in

So nice and warm

Look out the window at that storm

My sister will be suspicious

Gosh your lips look delicious!

My brother will be there at the door

Waves upon a tropical shore

My maiden aunt's mind is vicious

Gosh your lips are delicious!

Well maybe just a cigarette more

Never such a blizzard before

And I don't even smoke

I've got to get home

Baby you'll freeze out there

Say lend me your comb

It's up to your knees out there!

You've really been grand,

I feel when I touch your hand

But don't you see?

How can you do this thing to me?

There's bound to be talk tomorrow

Think of my life long sorrow!

At least there will be plenty implied

If you caught pneumonia and died!

I really can't stay

Get over that old out

Baby it's cold

Baby it's cold outside

Okay fine, just another drink then

That took a lot of convincing!

Although the intent of the article was ironic, the arguments contained therein had great relevance over time. In particular, in 2007 it exploded a real controversy when a video parody arrived with a very disturbing scene in which a man dragged a terrified woman into the bedroom.

From that point on, more and more articles online, mainly written by feminist authors, analyzed the lyrics of the song and found confirmation in the words of the article in the Canadian National Post.

When in Love Hard Natalie refuses to sing the notes of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" precisely because of the controversial lyrics, she and Josh change the words of the song transforming it into the previously unreleased "Maybe Just Go Outside":

I really can't stay

No problem there's the door

I've got to go away

I hear ya, say no more

This evening has been

Totally consensual

So very nice

I hope you get home safe tonight

My mother will start to worry

Here's my phone give her a call

My father will be pacing the floor

Adios, say no more

So really I'd better scurry

I've been saying that for a while

Well, maybe just half a drink more

Slow down, that's quite a pour

The neighbors might think

It's just my old friend Troy

Say what's in this drink

It's just lemon LaCroix

I wish I knew how

To take a hint?

To break the spell

Do you know how to spell 'farewell'?

I ought to say no, no, no

I'll call you an Uber, they're close

At least I'm gonna say that I tried

I feel like you're not trying at all

I really can't stay

Well, maybe just go out

Cause Baby, it's cold outside

Maybe just go outside

A decidedly less problematic text.

The fifth episode of the Marvel Studios show The Falcon and the Winter Soldier introduced the character of Countess Valentina Allegra de Fontaine played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

After talking non-stop for a few minutes and without granting a reply to Walker, the Countess takes leave, telling him that she will be the one to get in touch with him.
