Part of My Heart...

The Jerk may not be the greatest movie ever made, but Steve Martin is hard to beat (pre-Bringing Down the House, that is). One of the things that makes him great is his musical prowess. In addition to excelling at the banjo, Martin scores on a ukulele rendition of the classic American love song, "Tonight You Belong to Me." Bernadette Peters completes the song with precious vocals and a great cornet line. I think my favorite thing about this recording may be the gentle ocean ambience throughout.

The Broadway Hush also did a pretty good version of the song.

So check it, yo:

Hey, that's the song Pat and I sang for talent show our senior year! And then you and Grace totally copied us! (Albeit unintentionally...and yours was probably better.)

Let's watch a Steve Martin film or stand up or something after I come home and before you leave. Oh! We aren't going to overlap now that I'm staying longer. :( :( :( That's so sad...

(Good thing we're going to see a kick@$$ concert together in August!)
