"It's important that people get a positive message, We don't throw something down and criticize, we want to think and use our mind to fix things. Things should be built rather than be taken apart. There should be something to be happy about." - JEFFREY JEY

Eiffel 65 was an Italian electronic/eurodance three-piece group, formed in the early 1990s in Torino, Italy and best known for their international hit "Blue (Da Ba Dee)". Their other hit singles include "Move Your Body" and "Too Much of Heaven", all of which appeared on their debut album Europop, released in late 1999. The name "Eiffel" was chosen randomly by a speacial computer program and when they got back their label copy, it read "Eiffel 65" as a mistake. The "65" was part of a phone number that was inadvertently scribbled next to the name Eiffel when the text was submitted for printing.

Their second album Contact! was released in 2001 and while it did not sell as well as Europop, it did enjoy a fair share of success in Europe. The group continued to enjoy success in their native Italy with such songs as "Viaggia Insieme a Me", "Voglia di Dance All Night", and "Cosa Resterà". In 2003, Eiffel 65 released a self-titled album, mainly in Italian.
