  1. Ummm…not to pick any nits, but I think Breakfast at Tiffany’s was done by Deep Blue Something. They were a band out of Dallas that used to play occasionally at a bar I ran (in the early 90’s, no less).

    That having been said, I can’t disagree with your conclusion. The guys in the band weren’t especially bright either.

  2. Yep. Deep Blue Something.

    My interpretation was that she wanted to break up because they hasd “nothing in common” and he knew that was bullsh*t, and he wants her to admit that she just doesn’t want to be together (the line “still I kn ow you just don’t care”), and really he doesn’t care about the break up as much as he doesn’t want her to lie to him….

    I hope that made some sense

  3. Oh the beauty of song lyrics, just like poetry they say different things to differnt people.

    Anyway, I too like the tune and have always found the words to be somewhat intriguing. I don’t know that I would go so far as to call it the lamest love song ever, or necessarily even one of them (not that I can think of a better example off hand).

    I assumed that he was, to some degree, harkening back to a happier time in the relationship. That maybe if they could recall something that they did together that they both “kinda liked” it would help them to remember why they like each other. Who knows.

    And, btw, Bohemian Rhapsody is an awesome song. A little odd, but I love it. ;)

  4. Lyrics that don’t make sense

    Steven Taylor doesn’t understand the lyrics of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,�? a song by one-hit wonder band Deep Blue Something (the remainder of their album sucked, by the way). Meanwhile, I’m trying to be on the cutting edge by deciphering the l…

  5. “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song about death, sung in a deliberately operatic way (since operas are always about someone dying tragically). At least, that’s how I’ve understood the song.

  6. The lyrics to “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” make more sense than do the lyrics for any David Bowie song.

    And yet Bowie is excellent and Deep Blue Something sucks big time. Clarity ain’t everything in rock, it would seem.

  7. Well, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” makes more sense than “Starship Trooper” by Yes.

  8. It may be a lame argument, but it just strikes me as so normal/realistic. Being as how you married your high school sweetheart (or so I’ve been told), I assume you have very little, if any, experience with the break-up process. When one person wants to break up and the other doesn’t, the rejected person often tries to remind the other of the “good times we had together”, whether they ever existed or not, and the person uses what ever they can think of at the moment. Plus, emotionally based arguments often seem lame when one doesn’t have the same emotional attachment as the other.

    Just for the record, I love analyzing song lyric and would have majored in it if such a field of study were available to me. :)

  9. “Well, we did have a good cheeseburer that one time at Burger King”

    “Yeah, it was ok.”

    “See! We both kinda liked it. Let’s get married!”

    “Ok!”

    :)

  10. Hey, you get it now. :)

    By no means was I indicating that it works, mind you.

  12. Now if you want to talk about a lame argument set to music, check out “Stay with Me�? by Rod Stewart. Now that will really convince a woman to spend the night with you!
