rmackman Posted August 11, 2009 Share Posted August 11, 2009 So for those of you who aren't Miami Dolphins fans, the background info is that whenever the Dolphins scored a touchdown, they played this song over the PA System: . That song has been a staple (albeit corny but fun) since at least the 1970s (which you can tell).Well, turns out T-Pain & Pitbull have "remixed" the beloved song. His new version will begin play this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vq6Q9wu3F6w. I kind of like it, but I won't lie, I'll miss the old version. I guess the team just wants to seem more modern, but at least they kept the historical lyrics.Maybe the Dolphins can change their cheerleaders names to "The Mermaids" then let T-Pain sing "Believe me when I say...I *bleep* a mermaaaaaaaaaaaid."By the way, the Dolphins are now partially owned by Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony, Jimmy Buffett owns the naming rights to the stadium, Gloria Estefan also has part ownership, and T-Pain & Pitbull are doing the fight song. Just in case you're keeping track...THE OFFICIAL ARTICLE FROM THE BOOMBOX:In an attempt to boost attendance, the Miami Dolphins have hired Florida talent T-Pain and Pitbull to record their new fight song, which was debuted August 7 at the Versace mansion on South Beach.Dolphins owner Stephen M. Ross also tapped margarita-rocker Jimmy Buffet to provide a version of the song, which he hopes will help fill seats in the team's newly-renamed Land Shark Stadium."The new fight theme songs by Jimmy Buffett and T-Pain feat. Pitbull will be introduced for '09/10 season,'' the Dolphins' spokesman Elliot Stares said. "The original fight song will never be obsolete and will remain on the musical agenda.According to the press release, the music has been updated, but the lyrics to the fight songs remain the same as the original, which conjures a hilarious image of Pitbull, Pain and Buffet singing:"Miami has the Dolphins/ The greatest football team/ We take the ball from goal to goal/ Like no one's ever seen/ We're in the air, we're on the ground/ We're always in control/ And when you say Miami/ You're talking Super Bowl!"We hope that works for them.
