Jerry Goldsmith composed the score to ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES, which somehow ended up as published sheet music despite the fact a soundtrack album was not released at the time.

Here pianist Mike Farrell sight-reads this tune.



ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES (Theme From)


Here is a link to a checklist of Sheet Music from which this was chosen.

Hope you enjoy.

I see the sheet music says Escape from the Planet of the Apes but I don't remember this theme in the score...was it perhaps rejected and used in something else (because it does sound very familiar)? It is lovely though...

It is heard in the cue "Shopping Trip" from ESCAPE/APES and is indeed used in the film for a montage sequence, but in a more pop-oriented vibe. The cue is available on the limited edition album from Varese.

This theme was used during the montage of Zira and Cornelius's shopping spree.

Possible lyrics:

We're Apes on a Shopping Spree

We're Apes on a Shopping Spree

Oh my what a great day

We're Apes on a Shopping Spree

We're Apes on a Shopping Spree

And the humans will pay....


Zira is our favorite Pet

Let's take Roddy to the Vet...



please continue

It wasn't the theme, it was as others have said, but the theme is the main title music. Playing that solo on a piano... now that would be interesting.

Quite pleasant for a movie that is often very frantic.
