Cherchez La Femme

"Cherchez La Femme" (Seek the Woman; proper French case is Cherchez la femme) is a song that was written and performed by Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band with lead vocals by Cory Daye in 1976. It was later featured in the 1998 film, 54. The song's opening lyric is notable in itself as it makes a reference to record executive Tommy Mottola, who was instrumental in giving the act their major label deal.
