Watch Neil Diamond’s music video that covers Adam Sandler’s “Chanukah Song”

Every so often, a comedian decides to sing; and of course, there's a whole genre of musical comedians who do only that. But it's quite rare to find a comedian have one of his or her songs covered by an even more famous singer. Such was the case, we learned this fall, with Neil Diamond performing a cover version of Adam Sandler's "Chanukah Song," which you may recall first seeing and hearing on Saturday Night Live, and then every December since on your radio. It's on Diamond's new Christmas disc, "A Cherry Cherry Christmas," and now we have an official music video for it. Would you have guessed that it's animated? Roll it! Happy Holidays…

Oh, and here is Sandler performing his song live years ago:

  1. I remember this song:) Very funny to hear it from Adam Sandler and his group. I heard both of them and I think I like more the second clip:) I wish I could be there on the concert. Thanks to the author for the nice song:)
