Walk Like an Egyptian

LORELAI: Okay here [offers concert tickets, but pulls them back] Ah! With these tickets you are about to enter sacred space, you will be treading on hallowed ground, you will be walking like an Egyptian.

Walk Like an Egyptian is a 1986 song by The Bangles, from their album Different Light. It was written by Liam Sternberg, who was inspired to write it after seeing the stiff, stylised way passengers on a ferry were walking to keep their balance, reminding him of figures in Ancient Egyptian pictures.

Walk Like an Egyptian was the #1 song of 1986, and sold millions of copies; it helped make Different Light The Bangles’ most successful album, and is their best known song. It plays as they arrive at the Pastorella Theatre.
