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

If you lived through the 90’s it might come as a shock to hear that the track ‘Blue (Da Ba Dee)’  by Eiffel 65 was in fact a flop when it was first released, selling only about 200 records initially. It was actually dismissed as a flop and all but forgotten about, that is until a turn of events would see the track being picked up by a local radio station which gave it enough momentum to get some airtime on Radio DeeJay, one of Italy’s biggest stations.

Within a few days the track had taken off and became one of the biggest hits of the lat 1990’s, it took the electronic genre to new heights and saw Eiffel 65 touring the world and preforming alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry.

In this Vice film they meet up with the members of the group that started it all, Jeffrey Jey, Maurizio “Maury” Lobina, and Gabry Ponte to discover the truth that lies behind the inception of one of the worlds most recognisable tracks.
