"Blue (Da Ba Dee)" By Eiffel 65 (f/Eric Taft)

"Blue (Da Ba Dee)" By Eiffel 65 (f/Eric Taft)

In the late 90s, three DJs living in Italy spent a few hours creating a club track that couldn’t even keep people on the dance floor. That would quickly change thanks to a little radio airplay, and before they knew it, “Blue” became an international hit. The song is equal parts catchy and silly, but what exactly is it about? This week, we’re joined by Eric Taft to help figure it out. Beyond producing, engineering, and playing in The Great Heights Band and So Fetch, Eric is also secretly one of Eiffel 65’s biggest fans. He helps us dive into the lyrics of “Blue” and figure out what’s really happening in this Europop classic.
