Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information

|A song written and sung by Sandler is featured on the soundtrack of which Steve Martin movie?||Real Adam Sandler Music
Mixed Nuts. He plays Louie in the movie and serenades Rita Wilson with the song "Grape Jelly", which he wrote specially for her for Christmas.
The Severe Beating of a High School Science Teacher. Rob Schneider plays the zinc and plutonium loving science teacher who gets severely beaten. But that's OK, because he was a mass-murderer and/or a necrophiliac.
Chris Rock. Chris Rock has surprisingly never appeared on any Sandler albums.
Molly Shannon. The sketch has a married couple who insult each other in their sleep.
Stan & Judy's Kid. The fourth Sandler album has a dedication to Chris Farley in the liner notes. "Shhh... Don't Tell" has a tribute to father Stan Sandler entitled "Stan the Man".

Kevin Nealon. The one-time anchor of "Weekend Update" plays a hypnotist who eats baby food and farts sporadically.
O.J. Simpson. It was Simpson who was mentioned, fresh off his 1994 arrest and subsequent trial who was singled out by Sandler as "not a Jew". In his second Chanukah song, recorded in 1999 the reference to Simpson is there again, as "O.J. Simpson, still not a Jew". This line in the original song got one of the biggest audience responses of all the people mentioned.
Note: Sandler did Part 2 in 1999 and Part 3 in 2002 with other celebrities mentioned, but the song that you will hear 99% of the time is the original 1996 version.

Smoking Marijuana. On the album cut Adam sings "Drink your gin and tonic-ah, and smoke your marijuanic-ah", but on the SNL broadcast had had to say "DON'T smoke marajuanic-ah". Whatever the censors did that night, when you hear the song played these days, it is generally the uncut version that is broadcast on most airwaves.

David Lee Roth. He started the list of "people who are Jewish just like you and me.. David Lee Roth lights the Menorah". He also list James Caan, Kirk Douglas and "the late Dinah Shore-ah".
Saturday Night Live. Sandler performed this song on Saturday Night Live claiming that "there are so many songs about Christmas, and not too many Chanukah songs, so I wrote a song for all those nice little Jewish kids who don't get to hear any Chanukah songs". This quote is actually on the record.
