Blue (Da Ba Dee) from Eiffel 65 Marvel’s“IRON MAN 3”
For the Chinese market a special version of the most popular song from Eiffel65 is included in Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”, in theaters May 3, 2013.
Who would have known that Eiffel65’s “Blue”, sung and danced to by people all over the world, would have been included in the soundtrack for the film about a legendary hero like IRON MAN?
...And that for the Chinese market Eiffel65 would have created a new version of the song sung in Mandarin?
It’s a true story. The group received the request to record “Blue” with a verse sung in Mandarin, which is spoken across most of northern and southwestern China, and to deliver it in 36 hours. So starts the race to find a Chinese teacher in Turin to translate the lyrics of the song, teach the correct pronunciation to lead singer Jeffrey Jey, and assist him during the recording session.
After hours of rehearsal and one sleepless night, finally the track was recorded and sent to the filmmakers. The curiosity of fans will be satisfied next month in all Chinese Cinemas.
Now you can find this special version on the Official BlissCo YouTube Channel

Let's take a look back at Tu Credi, the 4th song on the "Eiffel 65" album.
"The lyrics of "Tu credi" were written by Massimo Gabutti, our producer/publisher, I wrote the music and made the arrangements and production. It has great lyrics with a strong meaning!
I love the phrases: "You believe that in the world there is a place for you ... and my life sounds better because you believe in me."
That words talk to me about the “young” and the “adult” point of view.
And they find a happy ending in a human relationship. Good Job Massimo!"
Later on in 2004, the song was revamped by Roberto Molinaro and Maury into a 10 minute dance opera.
Una Notte E Forse Mai Più was the 4th single extracted from Eiffel 65's self-titled album, later in 2003.
The song was entirely composed by Maury and he shares his story of the song's creation:
"Una notte e forse mai più" is one of those songs that I wrote and composed in one night. I had two initial inputs in mind: the title and the melody of the piano intro that was inspired by a song by The Police (guess which one ;) ). I had never written lyrics in Italian before this album so it was like being at school: I studied languages, metrics, contents of all the Italian artists that I considered interesting.
I had decided that I wouldn’t write any traditional love song, I thought it was trivial and obvious. But then the title "una notte e forse mai più" made me think of one thing: they all wrote about the great love... the poetic, eternal one, but I didn’t remember a song dedicated to the smaller love... the passion, the one that may only last for a night but still be unforgettable.
The amazing thing about this song is that when it came out it was a "medium" success, not one of our greatest, but today in our live shows it's one of the best moments for the crowd. There are songs that need more time to really succeed. "
Note that these statements were obtained exclusively for the 10th anniversary of Eiffel 65's third album, so stay tuned for more interesting facts and stories!
