- Written for Porter's 1935 musical Jubilee. The beguine is a dance and music form, similar to a slow rhumba. It was popular in the 1930s coming from the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, where in local Creole "beke" or "begue" means a white person and "beguine" is the female form. After Cole Porter wrote the song the dance became more widely known beyond the Caribbean.
