Eiffel 65 - Blue (da ba dee)

Song Info:

"Blue (Da Ba Dee)" (also released as "I'm Blue" in some countries) is a eurodance song released in 1999 by Italian group Eiffel 65, as a single from their debut album Europop (1999).

The song is the group's most popular single, reaching number one in many countries such as Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Switzerland, New Zealand, Norway, Australia, and Germany, as well as reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.[1] In the United Kingdom, the song originally entered the Top 40 purely on import sales. It was only the third single to do this.[2]

The song also received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance Recording at the 2001 Grammy Awards.

Music Video Info:

The song's music video was released in 1999 and featured computer-generated 3D animation.

In the video, lead singer Jeffrey Jey is abducted by blue aliens during a concert. The aliens then proceed to leave Earth with him. Group members Maurizio Lobina and Gabry Ponte give chase in their own small spacecraft, and eventually both ships arrive on the blue aliens' planet via a portal. It is then shown that the Jey was abducted to perform in a concert for the aliens, performing the same song he was about to sing when he was taken. He slowly realises that the crowd is composed of blue aliens and becomes increasingly concerned. After fighting off a number of alien guards using martial arts and several energy-based, psionic abilities the pursuing members succeed in rescuing their lead singer. While leaving the planet, they are asked to return by the aliens. They oblige, and spend the remaining duration of the video by performing a concert for the blue-skinned extraterrestrials.

The events in the video, obviously, have absolutely nothing to do with the "little man," depression, life choices, or anything else mentioned in the lyrics.
