Eddie Vedder’s Ukelele Album

Features a cover of this song, “Tonight You Belong to Me,” made famous by Bernadette Peters (at least in my lifetime) during a scene from The Jerk.

Not for nothing, but if you told me at the height of the grunge era that Eddie Vedder would be riding the ukelele phenomenon twenty years later with a cover of this song, I’d have found it totally believable. Is Eddie Vedder actually talented, or just very good at spotting trends and making music to fit them?

Coincidentally, Steve Martin’s bluegrass career seems very legit to me. Is that because of Dead Men Wear Plaid and other risks he has taken through his career? It couldn’t have been easy getting that arrow through his head.
