14. Johnnyswim

Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano make up the musical duo Johnnyswim. The husband and wife songwriting team are known for their eclectic mix of folk, blues, and pop songs. Their passionate version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” comes from their deep connection as both musical and romantic partners.

It is hard to think ill of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” while watching Ramirez sing to his wife. There is such love in his eyes and tenderness in his voice. Sudano’s smile as she looks at her husband is enough to make even the coldest of hearts melt. Watching this music video you feel as if you are intruding on a private moment shared between this couple.

The song works because of its simple arrangement. It is just a guitar and Ramirez and Sudano’s soaring voices. The intimate home setting near a decorated fireplace just helps make their version of this holiday classic stand out. This is the feeling the song was originally intended to capture- the joy of two people who care about each other and who just want to spend more time together. He obviously cares about her and does not want her braving the elements alone. The fact that this couple is married just makes this version even that much sweeter.
