Watch Steve Martin Cover ‘Tonight You Belong to Me’ in ‘The Jerk’

Okay, so technically it was uke master Lyle Ritz playing in this heartwarming scene from the The Jerk, but Steve Martin — who has racked up Grammys and will receive an International Bluegrass Music Association Distinguished Achievement award for his fine banjo playing — certainly sells his strumming alongside Bernadette Peters on coronet in the 1979 movie.

“Tonight You Belong to Me” was written in 1926 by Billy Rose and Lee David, and is a favorite among ukers. Eddie Vedder covered it with Cat Power on his 2011 album Ukulele Songs.
