Tom Hanks Crowns Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” Best Song Of 2009

Tom Hanks is all about the “Single Ladies.”

The Oscar-winner racked his brain when asked for his favorite tune of 2009 backstage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary concert on Thursday, but Tom finally settled on Beyonce’s No. 1 smash, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It.),” MTV News reports.

“Dada-dada ring on it! Dada-dada ring on it!” Tom sang, as he struggled to remember the lyrics to Beyonce’s award-winning track. “That is a damn fine song, the Beyonce song … because it’s infectious,” the 53-year-old actor said.

“Kanye West has nothing to do with my embracing of that song,”
he joked.

Tom says he likes the song because that’s what he told his wife, actress Rita Wilson, when they first met: “I’m gon’ put a ring on that finger. I’m gon’ take that thing home.”
