Monkey Man” by Toots & the Maytals. Who hasn’t danced to this song at least once? Released in 1969, it climbed to #47 on the UK charts.

The lyrics of “Monkey Man” tell a tale of heartbreak. Toots Hibbert, the band’s frontman, sings about a girl who chooses another man over him. The song conveys his pain and surprise as he watches her prefer someone he deems less attractive. The line “Well, Monkeyman is all about a girl, a very good-looking girl like you! I fell in love with her, and then a monkey-looking man took her away from me, but I thought she was in love with me. The guy was ugly and not good-looking like me, ha ha!” captures the blend of jealousy and humor that permeates the song.
