Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a short novel by Truman Capote, was published in 1958. The story documents the life of a young woman, Holly Golightly, who is trying to find her place in the world when she meets 'Fred' (who is without a name in the book, but christened "Paul Varjak" in the film).

In 1961, it was made into a film starring Audrey Hepburn (as Holly Golightly), originally for Marilyn Monroe and George Peppard, and directed by Blake Edwards. A song from the film, "Moon River", by Henry Mancini, with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, became very popular.

In 1995, the band Deep Blue Something had a hit with a song called "Breakfast at Tiffany's". The song is about a crumbling relationship between two people with nothing in common except that they "both kinda liked" the film Breakfast at Tiffany's.
