“Yikes, did Telescope Media just put up a Deep Blue Something video?”
Your assessment is correct, bewildered follower, but as always, there’s a moral to be gleaned from this inexplicable event—one that’s (also, as always) tied to a High Fidelity reference:
After his pseudo-first-date with Marie, Rob mentioned that he, Barry and Dick had previously come to the conclusion that “what really matters is what you like, not what you are like… Books, records, films—these things matter.”
In this Deep Blue Something tune, we have a perfect example of that maxim playing out. In an attempt to save a floundering union, the song’s protagonist points out to his lady that they do in fact have some common ground: they both enjoyed Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Is it enough to rescue the relationship? Probably not, in this case, but it’s a valid place to start trying.
Life lessons aside, this track is kinda awesome, no?
