Steve Martin, Patience & Prudence

January 6th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Those who have seen The Jerk (1978) know this song well, but sadly, it’s never been issued on record. The song was written by Billy Rose. Rose cut his teeth as a songwriter in the 20s and 30s (he wrote “It’s Only A Paper Moon”) and later secured a fortune producing hits for Broadway. The song is likely an interpretation of Patience & Prudence’s version from the 1950s. Alexander Payne would revive this adolescent group by including their version of “Gonna get along without you now” on the Election soundtrack.

    I loved this with both Steve and Bernadette (with her cornet) and with Patience and Prudence. Thanks to the web, these are still available! Thanks.
