There is undeniably something special about Eiffel 65‘s hit track “Blue (Da Ba De).” Perhaps it is the hard-hitting bass that underlies the Da Ba De’s, or the auto-tuned voice with the “blue” lyrics, maybe it is the infectious synths that make for the song’s flawless transitions. Although the song may be a bit dated as electronic music has progressed, its impact is undeniable.
Eiffel 65’s “Blue” hit the airwaves back in 1998 through the record label Bliss Corporation. The following year, the song became an international hit, topping the singles charts in over 16 countries. The song remained popular for a number of years, obtaining Diamond certification in France, triple platinum in Australia and Sweden, and a myriad of certifications in other countries.
Fast forward to 2020, although “Blue” is long gone from the airwaves, its memory is ingrained in the public’s mind similar to Darude’s classic hit “Sandstorm”. In that same spirit, Harley, more well known by his stage name Flume, decided to post on Instagram covered in blue paint, with a Flume twist on the track.
Flume fans were hooked on his take of the 22-year-old song and requested a full version of the track. Flume heard the calls and put in the work in order to appease his fans. As of July 3rd, the song is available on all streaming platforms. Listen to the full remix below.
