Elaine Performs “Hang On Little Tomato” by Pink Martini

This song was written and recorded by the band Pink Martini, and is on the album of the same title. The beautiful melody is so sweet played by the clarinet with the big band, but I was inspired to rework it as a sweet little lullaby on guitar. The lyrics are so charming…I’ve dedicated my version to my niece Lena, and my nephews Geno and Victor. I’ll probably never get to sing it to them in person, but I do think of them often and was thinking of them this night, when I was inspired to record the song using my iPhone 6. Maybe some day they’ll see this video and know that I sang them to sleep one night.
