Miami Dolphins fight song via T-Pain

2tpain.jpgHip hop artist and Tallahassee native T-Pain mixed it up on South Beach Friday night at Casa Casuarina (formerly the Versace Mansion), backing the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders 2010 calendar unveiling and… drumroll…. debuting a new version of the Miami Dolphins Fight Song.

Traditionalists, purists, historians, fear not… T-Pain has kept the song’s lyrics and tune in tact. He’s just made it a 21st century autotune version. Check it out HERE.

I was standing next to Nat Moore when the song debuted – Moore loved that T-Pain preserved the history of the fight song. Entertainment industry manager Bernie Yuman, who has been helping Dolphins owner Stephen M. Ross partner with celebrities, sported a Dolphins T-Shirt under his jacket and sang the words to the song.

Team officials say T-Pain’s version isn’t replacing the fight song, but that both will be played at games at Land Shark Stadium this season.

Don’t forget, we also will be hearing Jimmy Buffett’s re-written version of his hit Fins that honors the Dolphins. Here’s his debut of that song in May:
