"Blue (Da Ba Dee)" is a song by Eiffel 65

Many people thought the chorus was "I'm blue and I'm in need of a guy," and that the song was about homosexuality. The correct translation is "I'm blue da ba dee di," and in no way relates to homosexuality. The group is Italian and their name came from a computer called "Eiffel." The 65 came after a note was sent with 65 accidentally written in and the members believed it was fate and should stay. (thanks, Nathaniel - Newark, NY, for above 2)

The vocals were distorted using a device called a vocoder. Cher used a similar technique on her hit "Believe," although her sound was created using an Auto-Tune device. This originally charted at #39 in the UK purely on import sales, thus becoming only the third record (after Jam's "That's Entertainment" and Lou Bega's "Mambo No 5 (A Little Bit Of)") to make the UK Top 40 just on import sales.The Eiffel 65 members are Jeffrey Jey, Maurizio Lobina and DJ Gary Ponte. The song came about when Lobina started playing a piano riff while Jey was writing lyrics. Jey recalls in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh: "I started thinking about this character I invented called Zoroti and the lifestyle he led, from the way he would buy his house, pick his girlfriend, his job or the neighborhood he would live in. Then I came up with a color, a color I thought described the way he saw things."
