Heh. The description is phrased to easily produce the answer 'fandango' without knowing anything about flamenco or Spanish folk dances - all you need to know is to recall a famous line from Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody - "Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?"

Seguidilla?

Flamenco songs are not related musically to the titles…. The titles (including Soledad) have been appropriated from popular titles in order to distinguish the collective group of “flamenco” song forms from each other. The most bizarre thing for me, so far, is the earliest known fandango SONG FORM, is the Maximo Lopez piano solo, which is clearly mimicking the sung form…but where did THAT come from??????? His title implies it was a popular or known song already (early 1800).

For sure baby hints like “scaramouche” actually mean JEOPARDY is dead.
