102 years ago Chicago-born Edgar Rice Burroughs probably had no idea that his imaginary trips in dark jungles would become world famous once Tarzan was on the scene. Not concerned with Darwin’s theories nor survival of the fittest, the story of a human boy living among apes was solely meant to entertain. The concept swung into heights of popularity, evolving into more than 50 movies, radio and TV series, comic books, video games and more. On Broadway too. There a 2006 song-filled version spun off from the 1999 Disney animation feature, in turn turning back to the original tale for major parts of the plot. English pop music star Phil Collins wrote melodies and lyrics for the movie, adding more for the stage. He’s always dug into drumming and soul music, roots akin to those of Tarzan’s adopted homeland; plus both men were British isles babies. The heart of Africa soars and throbs.
