In S1E13, Lorelai is about to hand Rory, Paris, Madeline, and Louise their Bangles tickets. Lorelai says, “With these tickets, you are about to enter sacred space. You will be treading on hallowed ground. You will be walking… like an Egyptian!” Rory says, warningly, “Mom…” Lorelai responds, “Take ’em. Oh, you’re gonna have a great time. The Bangles are the best! They were my favorite group in high school. I almost named you Susanna. The day I found out you had no musical talent at all… was the saddest day of my life.”
“Walk Like an Egyptian” is a song by the Bangles, previously discussed. The song was released in 1986.
Susanna Hoff co-founded the Bangles as a vocalist and guitarist.
