"The meaning of Euro pop actually, you can split this into Euro and pop. With Euro, we're meaning a gathering of different dance, European cultures. So we're talking about trip hop coming from the U.K., techno from Germany, we're talking about dance from Italy. It's all blended together. In fact, the different tracks have a different kind of dance situation as a bottom arrangement. And pop means that there's always a song on it. So that's exactly what we're saying, Euro pop and songs put onto a European dance situation."
Jeffrey discussing the name of Eiffel 65's first album, Europop

Yo listen up here's a story about a little band that lives in a blue world...

Eiffel 65 are an Italo Disco/Eurodance/Europop band (whose first album is actually Trope Namer for Europop) from Italy consisting of three men: Jeffrey Jey (real name Gianfranco Randone), Maurizio "Mauri" Lobina (known as Apollo pre-Eiffel 65) and Gabriele "Gabry" Ponte. They are probably one of the most popular Eurodance bands out there, despite having only one song that everyone remembers - "Blue (Da Ba Dee)".

It started when Jey (previously singer for another Eurodance band, Bliss Team), Lobina and Ponte met each other at Bliss Corporation, a record label specializing in eurodance. With the help of a computer, which randomly picked one word from a given list, they settled on name Eiffel, but their producer accidentally scribbled number 65 on a label copy while writing down a phone number, and the three decided to roll with it.


They split up in 2005 to let Gabry focus on his solo carrer, and the other two members started a Spiritual Successor band called Bloom 06. The three finally reunited in 2010, and released their first post-reunion song, "Panico"/"Critical", in 2016.
