Deep Blue Something was a classic one-hit wonder. Their hit, "Breakfast At Tiffany's", came from their second album, "Home". The album was initially released on an independent album, as was their first, but showed enough promise to be picked up and re-released by a major label a year later. They would put out two more albums over the course of the next six years, neither charting, before going their separate ways.

The song was actually reportedly inspired by the film "Roman Holiday", but the band felt "Breakfast at Tiffany's" would do better in a song. They were likely correct, this is a very catchy song, relying heavily on the chorus, with a nifty little bit of guitar strumming interspersed. The song reached number five on the Billboard chart, hitting number one in the UK.

The unexpected hit brought unexpected attention; as can be imagined, copyright issues arose from the song's title. An indie band doesn't think about such things, but a major label does. Delays, and lack of any real follow-up would eventually lead to the band's end.

The single aside, the rest of the band's work is relatively uninspired. The two b-sides here are passable album tracks at best; nothing worth making a playlist, nothing that warrants revisiting. If you're getting this single, you're really getting it only for the single. And it's a good, fun one, definitely worth it; don't feel bad for skipping the rest.
