To accompany the cha-cha-cha dance that Sookie says Lorelai is doing, Sookie begins singing songs by the Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin at her.
Sookie sings parts of two songs: Livin’ la Vida Loca, and Shake Your Bon-Bon. They are both from Ricky Martin’s 1999 self-titled album, which was his first in the English language. A massive hit world-wide, the album reached #1 and went seven times platinum in the US; it remains Ricky Martin’s most successful album to date.
Livin’ la Vida Loca was a #1 hit for Martin, was #10 for 1999, and is his biggest-selling single. It made him an international star, and has become his signature song. La vida loca is Spanish for “the crazy life”.
Shake Your Bon-Bon peaked at #22 in the US, but was #2 on the dance charts. The song was used in commercials for Toyota Corolla in 2000, which showed Hollywood actor Brad Pitt driving the car.
Most unusually, Sookie singing Ricky Martin is the only commercial music used in this episode.
