Gavotte

What the hell is a Gavotte.  I head it in a Carly Simon Song.

Darv Lee

The gavotte is a French folk dance that was popular in the late 16th century. It was somewhat majestic and pose-y, long before vogueing came into … well, vogue. Simon has stated in interviews that she pictured the character in her song making a dramatic entrance, one hand raised and the other on his hip, much like those elegant pantaloon-wearing Baroque folks did back in the day.

So I’m guessing that if you can’t Gavotte to the boogie woogie, then the song is for sure not about you.
