Help me find this song from 1997-1998

Maybe 1999, but 1998 seems very likely.

All I know is that a lot of lyrics have the word blue in it. Something like “I see a blue <something> I see a blue <something else>”. It was on the radio a lot.

Not much to go on, but I’m confident in the Teeming Millions!

“Blue” by Eiffel 65, I reckon.

We have a winner! Thanks!

Oh, you’re very welcome.

Da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa

Ugh. Now I have this stuck in my head.

I regret nothing!

Wow, what a dumb song.

10:21—>10:23. Two minutes less reading/though/typing etc… Not to shabby SDMB.

That was an easy one though.

It wasn’t so easy for me. I was Googling for quite some time before I posted the question here. There’s a lot of songs with the word blue in the lyrics. :slight_smile: Even when I tried to narrow down the year, I was getting 100+ songs. I’m not surprised though that somebody knew it though, although 2 minutes kind of surprised me. The power of group intelligence!

Heh. I had no idea what song the OP was talking about, and even with the answer it wasn’t ringing a bell. But I instantly recognized it form your “lyrical” snippet. :slight_smile:

Had no idea there were any words involved in the song. Listened to it again, and I guess, yeah, there’s a spoken intro with many mentions of the word “blue” and sure enough, there’s apparently verses, too. I have no memory of any of that, but the chorus hook, yep!

“Yo, listen up, here’s the story about a little guy who lives in a blue world…”

Plays wayyyyyy too often in my car while I drive. At 3 am along US 395 it’s perfect. :smiley:

Huh. Well, I enjoyed my glory while it lasted.

You’re still my hero! :slight_smile:

There’s a whole genre implied here:

“Now this is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-air.”

“Listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed…”


ETA: almost forgot

“Here’s the story
Of a man named Brady…” :slight_smile:

Nice, I knew it instantly. It’s a great catchy song.

Eiffel 65 also did a similar song called Move Your Body.

Chicago had a dance music station in 2000 that played this song a lot. I loved the station, lots of current club hits all day and some deeper, more underground stuff at night. I can’t remember what they called themselves or the callsign. 92.5 & 7, I think.

Sandstorm by Darude was a smash hit around the same time and played so much, everywhere. If you’re familiar with the song and have never seen the toy trumpet video, you need to see this. It’s barely more than a minute long and gets good toward the end so hang in there.

Internet pop-music reviewer Todd in the Shadows addressed “Blue” a few years back on “One Hit Wonderland”, a series where he goes over the career and body of work of acts that are only known for one song.

It’s an interesting watch.

I listened. I have heard this song before, not knowing it was supposed to be nonsense. I heard this section as “I believe I will die, I believe I will die…” :slight_smile:

Thanks for the link. I had never seen Todd in the Shadows before, but I love what I’ve seen. I clicked on the Scatman John video after this one, and it was gold! Sounds like I’ll be going down the Youtube rabbit hole tonight!

I bet you hear “Circle of Life”'s chorus singing about penguins in their bottom? :stuck_out_tongue:
