Let's Misbehave

  • This suggestive song was written by Cole Porter for the musical Paris, which opened in Atlantic City on February 6, 1928, but was soon replaced by "Let's Do It." Porter's biographer George Eells said: "In opting for the latter, Cole discovered that there was infinitely more humor in a provocatively insinuating proposal than a direct proposition."
    Nevertheless, "Let's Misbehave" is not a bad song in its own right and has been covered by many artists over the years. >>

  • Elvis Costello performed this song in the 2004 Cole Porter biopic, De-Lovely, named for the Porter song. Cybill Shepherd also sang it for the 1975 musical romantic comedy At Long Last Love.
