Deep Blue Something

Deep Blue Something are an American rock band best known for their hit single ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ which has been played in almost every pub in the world.

Initially named Leper Messiah, the band changed their name when they discovered that Metallica fans turned up to their gigs (Metallica have a song called Leper Messiah).

Breakfast At Tiffany’s, love it or hate it?

‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ was listed on VH1’s list of ’50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever’. It took the #6 spot, just after ‘Ice Ice Baby’ by Vanilla Ice.

The most frowned upon aspect of the song has been its lyrics, with one reviewer going so far as to remark “If all you have in common is that you both like one of the best films in history, maybe you should just call it quits”.

‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ is a classic example of a so-called one-hit wonder, Deep Blue Something has never managed to produce a hit of the same caliber since.

Other songs that Spytunes has recorded by one hit wonder bands are ‘Kiss Me‘ and ‘Hey There Delilah‘.

Breakfast At Tiffany’s – Lyrics

Breakfast at Tiffany'sYou’ll say, we’ve got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we’re falling apart
You’ll say, the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
