Adam Sandler Adds New York City Twist to ‘Hallelujah’ at 12-12-12 Concert

Subscribe to TheFW on

Adam Sandler became the one millionth person to cover Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ last night at the 12/12/12 concert benefiting Hurricane Sandy relief. Only his version was chock-full of racy New York City-specific jokes. 

Accompanied by Paul Shaffer on piano, Sandler offered his version of ‘Hallelujah,’ which ended up being ‘Sandy, Screw Ya.’ (Get it??) Of course, there was also plenty of room for topical, year-in-review jokes hitting Lindsay Lohan, bed bugs and Mayor Bloomberg’s war on large sodas.

What did you think of Adam Sandler’s song? Was it the highlight of the 12-12-12 concert? And how does it compare to other Sandler classics like the ‘Chanukah Song’? (Watch it below for comparison.)
