Less than a week after several Canadian media companies removed “Baby It’s Cold Outside” from holiday airplay, CBC music has made the decision to reintroduce it.

“As you know, last week we decided to press pause to consider the different points of view on playing ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside.’ Because we value our audience input which was overwhelmingly to include the song, we have put it back on the two playlists where it had been removed,” said CBC public affairs head Chuck Thompson in a statement.

statement from the company was released on Tuesday, December 11, explaining how the song had been removed from two of their holiday music streams and was being reinstated.

The decision, according to Chuck Thompson of CBC Public Affairs, was made based on overwhelming feedback from listeners to include the song.

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has been considered a holiday classic ever since it won the Academy Award for best original song in the film “Neptune’s Daughter.”

It’s since been covered countless times by singers Ray Charles and Betty CarterIdina Menzel and Michael Buble, as well as Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart.

Concern over the song has existed for years, leading to many reinterpretations of the lyrics.
