Breakfast at Tiffany's

   Discussion: Breakfast at Tiffany's
Janos · 21 years ago
Is that a song that they actually wrote, or did they just perform it at one time or another? Is it on any of their CD's?
Andrea Krause Back · 21 years ago
Fruvous you mean? No. It's a song by Deep Blue Something. It's not on any Fruvous CDs. I can't say whether they ever did it live.

a lot of users on file-sharing programs credit an a cappella version of this song to fruvous, when it's actually by a college a cappella group, i think.
John J. Ryan Back · 21 years ago

I'm willing to bet that all college a cappella on the net is mislabeled as Fruvous.

Just like half the Fell In Loves that are out there are by the Brown Derbies.

And half the Green Eggs And Ham are just from an audio book of the same name.� Look out when it says "Dr. Seuss Version".

All funny songs are by Weird Al or TMBG.� This includes King of Spain.

nate... Back · 21 years ago
Yeah, I always hated that.
lawrence Back · 21 years ago
actually, these are the rules of file sharing:
1. all parodies ever written were written by Weird Al Yankovic(h)(k)
2. all funny songs that aren't parodies are by They Might Be Giants
3. all a cappella songs that aren't already by TMBG or Weird Al because they're funny or parodies are by Moxy Fruvous

It was not written by Rockapella, tho they did do an a cappella version of it (can be found on WinMX).� I do belive the song was originally written and sang by Deep Blue Something.....also i think it was their only hit.

nate... Back · 21 years ago
It is by Deep Blue Something.

Though rockapella did a (not great) version.
*joolee* Back · 21 years ago

Guys, Rockapella never did a cover of 'Breakfast at Tiffany's.'

Check out the first question on here to see all the ones they have been wrongly credited for -

Eri Back · 21 years ago

I was just going to come in and say "no! It's not Rockapella!". It's one of those songs that I wouldn't be surprised if they'd stuck in live somewhere, because they seem to do that with random songs, as a cappella groupds are wont to do, but they didn't record it.

The version that gets labeled as Rockapella/Fruvous sounds to me like it might be the Brown Derbies... but not -quite-. It could be any number of groups, I guess. *nods*

Also, all Marvin Gaye and Al Green songs are accredited to Barry White, for some reason.
Rich D Back · 19 years ago
All neo-swing songs from the mid-1990s forward are either Brian Setzer or Big Bad Voodoo Daddy...
nate... Back · 21 years ago
I'm trying to think if I've heard them do that song live.
It seems so obvious that I think they MUST have... but I can't remember a specific show.....

Rachel Marie aka RAI Back · 21 years ago

Dude, all I know is that it's my favourite song to hear on the radio... I refuse to download it (although I fell for the a capella one... it's definitely not Fr�vous, you can tell) because that makes hearing it on the radio just that much more special.

And I have been hearing it quite often... I found that there are two radio stations in the Philly area that have been late-90's songs heavy because, quite frankly, music today just hasn't been as good!

And speaking of the acapella miscreditings on napster and kazaa. . . .there's a version of 'and so it goes" that says its moxy fruvous. . .but i'm not sure it's them. if it is, they are very young. but i can't recognize any of the voices. . . .the reason it might be them is because after the song ends, they go into "king of spain" and then mess up. . . .but again, it could be a college group just singing songs.� any info?
John J. Ryan Back · 21 years ago
Probably just bad college a cappella. :)� There is an a cappella arrangement of And So It Goes by Gary Fry.� The original is by Billy Joel and can be found on the Storm Front album and Greatest Hits Vol. 3.� The song is about Billy's fling with Elle MacPherson before he met Christie Brinkley.
Songbill Back · 19 years ago
I though it was about his first marriage breaking up and that's why it's copyrighted earlier. Not that I have this on any authority.
danced with Lazlo Back · 21 years ago
That's either The Brown Derbies or the Rochester acapella group... I forget which
Eri Back · 21 years ago
Defintely not Fruvous because there seem to be five voices. ;) It's the standard a cappella arrangement of the song, which has been performed by most a cappella groups that I'm familiar with... so, again, it could be just about anyone. In fact, there may even be a few different recordings of it floating around.
danced with Lazlo Back · 20 years, 10 months ago
This is a specific recording though, where at the end of the track they include a false start of KoS where the lead singer gurgles and chokes at the end and everyone starts laughing, and I remember hearing it on an original CD beloging to a Fruhead... and I think it was either Angie or Misch, which is why I think it was a Rochester group.
ellen, formerly evil Back · 20 years, 10 months ago
The "standard a cappella arrangement" is by the King's Singers, on their CD Good Vibrations, which I Most Highly reccommend :)
Carlos Nobazac · 20 years, 10 months ago

I tracked down the group that actually sings the version frequently credited to Moxy Fruvous. They're the University of the Philippines College of Allied Medical Professions Choir (really!). It's worth a hear if you don't already know it; any Fruvous fan could use this.

You can download their male-voice choir a capella rendition of Breakfast at Tiffany's here:

100% dainty! · 20 years, 10 months ago

You'll say that they've got nothing in common

No concerts, no recordings

And they're falling apart

You'll say there's nothing new they're singing

Their lives have come between them

Still I know they'll come back soon

And I said what about Breakfast at Tiffany's

She said I think I saw that on Napster

As I recall I think it wasn't them singing

And I said oh well. so much for that

I see them, the only ones who knew us

Oh how we all miss Fruvous

I guess we'll just wait. . ..

So what now? It's plain to see they're over

And I hate when things are over

When so much is left unsung

And I said what about Breakfast at Tiffany's

She said I think I saw that on Napster

As I recall I think it wasn't them singing

And I said oh well. so much for that

nate... Back · 20 years, 10 months ago
Dude, you rock.
That made my night.
100% dainty! Back · 20 years, 10 months ago

out of curiosity, how do you write so there aren't two spaces in between each line?

sheryls Back · 19 years, 1 month ago
hold down shift when you hit return :)
like-a this! :D
caroline: tired. Back · 19 years, 1 month ago
or....get a mac. ;)
seriously, though. I've never had that problem unless I'm at school. Running windows. Because I rock.
*ends mac elitist rant*
K-Lyn Back · 20 years, 9 months ago
Once again your brilliance shines through!!! What would we do with out you?
Tim Schultz · 20 years, 9 months ago
The official Rockapella website said that they never did a version of Breakfast At Tiffany's
Ilmater · 19 years, 6 months ago
Sorry to bring this up so late after the thread was truly active. I was perusing the old threads, clearly.

But I'm pretty sure that the song on the file-sharing networks is a version done by the six-man a capella group Voice Male. If you listen closely you can hear at certain points all six different parts (one on bass, one doing drum effects, two harmonizing on background, two harmonizing on main).
Jeff Marsden · 19 years, 1 month ago

Might it be Deep Blue Something?� It sounds just like it.

Ilmater Back · 19 years, 1 month ago
The original version is by Deep Blue Something; the a capella version is by Voice Male.
sheryls · 19 years, 1 month ago
i dont think Tiffany's serves breakfast.

They make really expensive jewelry, tho.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 19 years ago
As a little kid I thought it was a restaurant.
sheryls Back · 19 years ago
i used to think it was an expensive�department store, like Saks or Neiman Marcus.
Andrea Krause Back · 19 years ago

I used to think it was just lamps. :)

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 19 years ago
I used to think she was a teen pop star that played Judy Jetson in the movie.
*joolee* Back · 19 years ago

I think they are referring to this: Breakfast at Tiffany's

sheryls Back · 19 years ago
hee - i was being sarcastic :D
*joolee* Back · 19 years ago
Never underestimate the stupidity of�people. ��
nate... Back · 19 years ago
I don't get it.

*joolee* Back · 19 years ago


ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 19 years ago
yes it's quite expensive jewelry.

As my cow orker noted when we were trying to buy a bracelet as a gift for someone who is leaving the company: $350 for silver?!!? WTF?!?

Yeah, hearing about the movie when I was a kid made me thought that it was a really expensive restaurant with really fancy light powder blue doggie bags.
sheryls Back · 19 years ago

hee! nice :D

i just saw they have a rubber surfer bracelet with a tiny bit of silver: $135

Bender Back · 19 years ago
the starfish with the teeny diamond is hott.
nate... Back · 19 years ago
See, I always knew them as the jewelry company who did really beautiful ornate guns. :)

Guess that comes of having an uncle who's a verra high end collector.

zcehrz · 12 years, 4 months ago

The song is lyrically performed by Clay Bergus, who was the lead singer of the band Deep Blue Something that had only one hit single: Breakfast at Tiffany's. The a cappella group Moxy Fruvous accompanies Clay Bergus.
