A Dash of Tempo di Gavotte

Glühwürmchen means firefly, and was the main song from Lincke's 1902 operetta 'Lysistrata'. Kelly seemed to be in the mood to appropriate musical terms for the sheer fun of the their pronunciation. And for some reason misspelled Tempo di Gavotta.

Notice how the background colors give this Sunday some umph, some atmospheric solidity.

  1. Actually, I think it's 'gavotte' because it's a French dance. I've never seen it in the Italian form.
