One of my favourite Capote novels ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ clocks in under the letter ‘B’. This is one of those books where the film version precedes the book in terms of popularity – and quite right too! The queen of style Audrey Hepburn’s iconic rendition of the independent single girl in the city type was an instant success. Fast forward to the 90’s and the band Deep Blue Something’s hit single ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ took the world by storm and has stayed a classic ever since.

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
But I know you just don’tcare

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

And I saidwhat 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.”

You say that we’ve got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we’re falling apart
You’llsay the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
But I know you just don’t care

And I said what about “Breakfast atTiffany’s?
She said, “I think I remember the film,
And as I recall, Ithink, we both kinda liked it.” And I said, “Well, that’s the one thing we’ve got.”
