Adam Sandler recently shared that he still gets emotional when he sings Chris Farley’s song.

Adam said, “The first few times we played that song, I would tear up, and I couldn’t really sing it well because I’d get so emotional, and then I felt it and was able to get it out there.”

He continued, “It’s weird, but when that song starts, I go, ‘Oh f–k, alright, don’t cry and don’t do that’ still. I’ve sung it maybe a hundred times already, but it rocks me.”

He added, “I think it’s because we show a video of Chris, and I see his face. And I remember his dad and I’m friends with his brothers and his mom and everybody, and they still miss him a lot. So yeah, it gets me.”

Sandler continued, “Every show I do, by far the biggest applause of the night is talking about Farley, and any time I mention his name, the audience goes nuts. It feels great.”
