Song of the Day Apr 3

April 3, 2024

This month I’m focusing on One Hit Wonders of the 90s.

Today our song is:  Breakfast at Tiffany's

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is sung from the point of view of a man whose girlfriend is on the verge of breaking up with him because the two have nothing in common. Desperate to find something, the man brings up the Audrey Hepburn film Breakfast at Tiffany's, and his girlfriend recalls that they "both kinda liked it." He argues that this should serve as enough motivation for them to work out their problems based on the notion that love will always find a way to make things work.

The film Roman Holiday inspired the lyrics of the song, but songwriter Todd Pipes thought that one of Hepburn's other films would make a better song title.



  1. I always loved this song. There's something cheerful and fun about it. I had no idea he based it on these 2 iconic films
