King of the One Hit Wonders – Deep Blue Something!
Deep Blue Something are an American rock band best known for its hit single Breakfast at Tiffany’s which has been played by an acoustic guitarist in probably every pub in the world.
Initially named Leper Messiah, the band changed their name when they discovered Metallica fans turned up to their gigs, thinking that they would be a metal band (Metallica has a song called Leper Messiah)
Breakfast At Tiffany’s
Not only becoming famous from being played in every pub in the world by solo acoustic acts and duos.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ has also become famous for being listed on VH1 list of 50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever, upon which it took the #6 spot, just after Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice.
The most criticized aspect of the song has been its lyrical theme which has been commented on as “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.
To survive as a band with just one hit might be difficult over time, perhaps the annual PRS check makes it OK!

We’ve got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we’re falling apart
