The Story of "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" by Eiffel 65

When Eiffel 65 released 'Blue (Da Ba Dee),' it was a flop. They sold around 200 records, shrugged it off as a loss, and forgot about it. But in a wild turn of events, the track got picked up by a small local station before getting airplay on one of the biggest radio stations in Italy-and within days, it was steamrolling its way to becoming one of the biggest hits of the late 1990s, taking the electronic music group touring around the world as their song shot up the charts.

We met up with the members of Eiffel 65-Jeffrey Jey, Maurizio “Maury” Lobina, and Gabry Ponte-to find out the origin story behind "Blue," and hear what it was like to become international superstars in the blink of an eye.

This song is about Racism. They are white if they are black they going to die or viceverse, on those years racism against gold black people was really hard.

blue is my ultimate favorite song. it was my favorite as a kid, and it still hasn't gotten old. every time i heard it on the radio i'd crank it up; i was so sad when the station slowly stopped playing it. i love other songs too, and i have lots of favorites that are timeless to me, but this one will always hold that one place in my heart. didn't know how much i needed this documentary💙

Blue was a great song but the Album Europop is soooooo criminally underrated its insane. TONS of great songs on that album that you will come for Blue but stay for everything else. And Contact was also great! These guys had serious talent that kinda gets overshadowed by Blue.

So they feuded because they didn't think Gabry made any real contribution... And Gabry ended up being the most famous
bapjap 2 أيام قبل
Karim Sinanovic yes, exactly. Over the years Maury has ‘claimed’ to make demos upon demos for a new Eiffel album and it has never came to fruition. For a guy who wants to have his music ‘more famous than himself’, maybe he just should release music anyway. Gabry has been famous for many years and many Eiffel fans are happy for him.

This song was and still is extremely popular in Russia. Even despite the ambiguous translation of the text. Here “To be blue” means “to be gay” literally.

Lol, so AWESOME. This song definitely takes me back to the 17-18 year old me sneaking into night clubs going to all age clubs in Toronto & Chicago with a whole crew, looking around the club and seeing one of our buddies getting dragged out by security for fighting or smoking weed, we all got dragged out or denied entry by security at one point or another. Enough about me... Good for you guys. I don’t know you but I’m proud of you. You created something immortal that will never be forgotten and DJ’s across the globe have you guys to thank. Stick to your vision, pursue your dreams, get motivated and never give up. Starting today at 37 with nothing materialistic but the clothes on my back and this studio apartment I rent for $700 a month, I intend to do the same. I’m not a musician but I have a gorgeous 7 year old daughter to give me purpose and have been told I have a creative mind. Hey, you never know, tomorrow might just go different if you put yourself out there. Very inspiring. Thank you for posting!

There's a story behind everything, and tbh, this is a pretty shit, but catchy pop song, like Baby Sharke. Is it an interesting story, fuck no. But still, it's your story, and it was popular back in the day. But so was the awful remix of Witch Doctor 😅🤣😂
