Gothamist got sucked into watching the 50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs show on VH1, and we realized that the thing about any most awesomely bad song is that they had to have hit the zeitgeist, or at least filled a void in our empty lives, or else we wouldn't be able to remember that "Informer" was by the rapper Snow. And they are so good to karaoke to. Here's the whole list.
Anyway, number five on the list is Deep Blue Something's Breakfast at Tiffany's (yes, we do think Truman Capote was rolling around in his grave), and Breakfast at Tiffany's is also the NY Times' Great Summer Read (you can read the first chapter here) this week. Tonight, Candace Bushnell will read from the book at the Time-Warner Center Borders bookstore.
Here are more books from Holly Golightly, immortalized a little differently in the classic movie, with that image of Audrey Hepburn looking through the window gracing the walls of many a college girl's dorm room.
