6 slow dances, 4 medium ones, 1 lambada…

In S1E9, Rory is getting ready for her school dance and Lorelai sprays Rory’s hair with hairspray. Lorelai says, “Ok, that’ll be good for 6 slow dances, 4 medium ones, 1 lambada, but if you plan on doing any moshing I suggest another coat.”

Lambada is an upbeat Afro-Brazilian dance style that was popular in the 80’s and 90’s. Kaoma’s song “Lambada” was released in 1989 and is considered one of the most well-known singles in the world. (The song was actually a cover of a 1981 song by Los Kjarkas.) A sample of Kaoma’s “Lambada” can also be heard in Jennifer Lopez’s 2011 song, “On the Floor.”
