How to Know Your Love is Deep and Abiding

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.”

–Deep Blue Something, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

Truly, that is the song of a committed couple whose love will stand the test of time.

I’d embed the video here, since it’s like a bowl of shredded Wonder Bread in milk, but Universal Music Group doesn’t believe in allowing embedding, so I’ll just link to it instead.

Man, the 1990s were a terrible time for pop songs about love.

  1. The only one problem is that, despite the trite and kinda-sad meaning behind that song it had a fairly good hook.
    It was catchy. I remember singing it long after I heard it the first time. I’m pretty sure, w/o listening to it, that I could recall it even now.

    Their relationship might not last, but a good hook is worth the breakup. 🙂

  2. I admit that I never really paid attention to the lyrics, but I always assumed the superficial nature of them both kind of liking the movie was the whole point of the song.

  3. The hook is certainly enough to drag you along. Since I heard a snippet of it a few days ago I’ve been unable to get it out of my head. Thankfully, it has such deep things to teach us. “It’s plain to see we’re over, and I hate when things are over.” Me too, Deep Blue Something, me too.
