Deep Blue Something is an American rock band best known for its hit single “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” The group was founded in 1993 in Denton, Texas by students Todd and Toby Pipes, Kirk Tatum, and John Kirtland.
In 1996, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” which referenced the classic Audrey Hepburn film of the same name, reached the top five in the U.S. and number one in the United Kingdom.
There was conjecture that the band took so much time off between Home and Deep Blue Something in order to fight US centered copyright issues related to their initial album, 11th Song, which they believed to be of lower quality than their name deserved. The 7 year hiatus between albums is believed to be partially responsible for their failure to succeed in the US with their self-titled release.
The band’s website is no longer available, although they do have a profile on social networking website MySpace. The band is planning on playing a few shows summer of 2006 and to release new music through iTunes.
John Kirtland is now running a successful independent record label called Kirtland Records. Based out of Dallas, Texas and Los Angeles, California, Kirtland’s shrewd business dealings led to his ownership of the back-catalog of superstar band, Bush and royalty rights on the sales of certain albums by No Doubt. After selling off his rights to the No Doubt material, Bush remains on the Kirtland label along with successful indies like Bril and the Burden Brothers.
Deep Blue Something is an American rock band best known for its hit single "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
The group was founded in 1993 in Denton, Texas by students Todd and Toby Pipes, Clay Bergus and John Kirtland.
Bergus left the band before Tiffany's became a hit and was replaced by guitarist Kirk Tatom, but eventually returned to that role.
Originally, the group called themselves Leper Messiah, but decided to change the name after seeing this name attracted mostly heavy metal fans, due to the Metallica song of the same name.
Breakfast at Tiffanys
2-You say that 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
Still I know you just don't care
1-And I said, "What about BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S?"
She said, "I think I remember the film,
And as I recall, I think we both kinda liked it"
And I said, "Well, that's the one thing we've got"
I see you, the only one who knew me
And now your eyes see through me
I guess I was wrong
So what now? It's plain to see we're over
And I hate when things are over
When so much is left undone.
