It’s Fleet Week, the one week each year when the men and women of our Armed Forces descend upon New York City for a few days of revelry and debauchery. Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon guest Adam Sandler joined Jimmy on stage to debut an all new song, ‘Friends on All Bases’, a parody of Garth Brooks’ ‘Friends in Low Places’. Sandler and Fallon have always been masters of parody, and this fiery track makes light of how much our servicemen get laid during Fleet Week (especially thanks to Tinder).
I’m not sure that this song has the same commercial appeal as Sandler’s ‘Chanukah Song’ but I’d be SHOCKED if this didn’t get picked up in jukeboxes all around NYC for Fleet Week, at the very least The Patriot on Church & Chambers needs to add this tune to their jukebox asap. The troops deserve another anthem, Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon wrote it for them, and this needs to be played far and wide. Frankly, Garth Brooks needs to start playing this song in place of ‘Friends in Low Places’ because that song’s long overdue for an update.
