The musicians that brought Patriots fans “Brady Pull Me Closer” before last year’s Super Bowl are back with another song certain to end up stuck in your head before Sunday’s matchup with the Eagles.
This time around the tune is an ode to one of Brady’s favorite targets, “the bold and the soft-spoken” wide receiver Danny Amendola.
Ian Cunningham wrote the words to “Amen-dola,” performed by Ian Biggs, Sarah Gonzalez, Amy Vento, and Gina Jeannette.
The parody is based on Leonard Cohen’s melancholy hymn from 1984, “Hallelujah.” The song has been covered by more than 300 artists and has even appeared in a “Shrek” soundtrack.
The latest iteration includes lyrics that reference Amendola’s stint with the St. Louis Rams and suggest that No. 80 follow Julian Edelman’s lead with an appearance in ESPN’s “Body Issue.”
Listen (and hum along) to “Amen-dola” ahead of Super Bowl LII:
