Here's your #TapeTuesday. From my cassingles collection it's Deep Blue Something with their 1995 smash "Breakfast At Tiffany's." The definition of one-hit-wonder, Deep Blue Something released their second album Home in 1994 on the indie label Thornton Records. Once radio started playing the single, Interscope Records purchased the album and gave it a world wide release in 1995. Brothers Todd and Toby Pipes had trouble making the most of their success, with the label asking them for a new album in 1996, which was not recorded until 1998. At that point Interscope was finished with them and lawsuits followed with the Pipes brothers unhappy with their partnership with the labels. The boys would break up and focus on production before their inevitable 2014 reunion. The band remains very bland to this set of ears. This song, however, has a nice exploding chorus that stays in your head for days. Purchased at Musicland in Oakbrook, IL February 1996. #DeepBlueSomething #BreakfastAtTiffanys #Home #Interscope #TobyPipes #ToddPipes #JohnKirtland #ClayBergus
Every Tuesday night I have been posting a picture of a cassette tape from my collection. When I first fell in love with rock music, it was February 1995, I was 11 years old, and I was forced to buy cassette tapes instead of the then fashionable compact disc. To commemorate 20 years in love with rock music I decided to start #TapeTuesday. Here is the latest. Follow me on Instagram @andyderer.
