Deep Blue Something - Breakfast At Tiffany's
"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is a 1995 song recorded by American alternative rock band Deep Blue Something. Originally appearing on the album 11th Song, it was later re-recorded and released on their album Home. It was the band's only hit, peaking at number five on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Outside the United States, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" topped the UK Singles Chart and peaked within the top ten on the charts of Australia, Flanders, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, the Republic of Ireland and Sweden.
Todd Pipes said in a Q magazine article about the promotion of "Breakfast at Tiffany's", "As the song had 'breakfast' in the title, radio stations thought it would be genius to have us on at breakfast time. We'd be up 'til 3 am and they'd wonder why we were pissed off playing at 6 am."
Follow-up singles failed to match the success of "Breakfast at Tiffany's", hence the reason for the band's classification as a one-hit wonder.
Inspiration and composition
"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is sung from the point of view of a man whose girlfriend is on the verge of breaking up with him because the two have nothing in common. Desperate to find something, the man brings up the Audrey Hepburn film Breakfast at Tiffany's, and his girlfriend recalls that they "both kinda liked it."
He argues that this should serve as enough motivation for them to work out their problems based on the notion that love will always find a way to make things work.
The film Roman Holiday inspired the lyrics of the song, but songwriter Todd Pipes thought that one of Hepburn's other films would make a better song title.
Brian Wahlert called "Breakfast at Tiffany's" "a cute, catchy song that should fit in well on adult contemporary, Top-40 and alternative radio" with memorable melody that makes it "a perfect single, along with the mildly repetitive, conversational lyrics of the chorus and the bright, acoustic guitar".
However, Tom Sinclair of Entertainment Weekly was unimpressed. He called it "possibly the year's most innocuous single, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' is distressingly prosaic pop from a wimpy-sounding Texas quartet"; he added that it lacked any "musical piquancy". The Houston Press listed the song as the second worst by an artist from Texas, after Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby".
At the end of the video a young woman dressed in a similar style to Holly Golightly's (Audrey Hepburn's character from the film) iconic Givenchy dress from the beginning of the film, except dressed in white rather than black, walks past on the sidewalk, and takes off her sunglasses.
The band is also seen performing the song in a field, and on the bed of a flatbed truck in NYC.
Deep Blue Something is an American rock band who are best known for their 1995 hit single "Breakfast at Tiffany's" from their second album Home.
Originariamente il gruppo si chiamava Leper Messiah, ma fu cambiato per evitare confusione con l'omonimo brano dei Metallica, tratto da Master of Puppets.
La band ha raggiunto il massimo successo con il singolo Breakfast at Tiffany's, balzato al numero uno della classifica inglese il 29 settembre 1996 e rimasto in vetta per una settimana.
