I was listening to this yesterday - against my will.

(It’s in the new Smurfs film)

A tune way ahead of its time I’d say

reckon it was bang in line with it’s time, always reminds of stuff like Scatman John and Cotton Eye Joe

One of my closest friends in school said the Eiffel 65 song was the only “dance music” song he liked because at least it had some words you could sing along to.

How can you compare it?! Scatman John & Cotton Eyed Joe were regressive revivals of past music & dance crazes with a donk on, Blue was pure futurist melancholy of our alienation in the capitalist heteronormative monochrome monoculture

Nothing has ever sounded more like the future. In centuries to come, robo-historians will stumble upon it and be baffled by the complexity stemming from a very rudimentary period of history

People forget how weird the verse was though.

No weird verse in those other two.

The video was a cartoon! With aliens!

Ahead of its time.

That time isn’t yet.

It’s clearly «I’m in need of a guy» and this song was the singer’s secret way of coming out as gay. Everyone in my school knew that for a fact at the time, so you’re all rather late to the game.

Eiffel 65 - Blue is the bridge between Scatman and that Mad World song
