“Chimp in a Suit” – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Music and Lyrics: David Yazbek

The original Planet of the Apes film was released on this day in 1968, launching a multi-million dollar franchise about chimps in suits.  Although cut from the London production, this humorous song is in honor of that, though it is not from a musical about monkeys but rather two conmen in the French Riviera.  Itself based on a film, this outrageous comedy is a great listen when you’re in need of a laugh.
