So, last night I saw THE JERK all the way through for the first time (yes, I am/was a culturally deprived philistine). It was, as I expected, intermittently hilarious. But as all of you (who I assume have seen it) know, in the middle of the movie out of nowhere (after a lot of nonsense) is this absolutely adorable duet between Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters. It was stuck in my head all morning, and thankfully it's on youtube. I have seriously watched it about fifteen times today (not unlike after the Single Ladies performance on SNL, which totally smokes the studio version, BTW). Anyway, after all of our best of 2008 talk, this is the music that is totally killing me right now.
(For some reason embedding is disabled, but here's the link-- the song is only the first two minutes):
I can't listen to it enough times and it makes me want to get a ukelele and sing duets-- if you search for the song on youtube, you get a bunch of tutorial videos showing how to play it on uke. How much does a decent ukelele cost?
