When this song was in the charts, one of the most popular topics of pub conversation was what was actually being sung in the chorus. Nobody really believed that it could be something as simple and vacuous aa "da ba dee da ba da", so several theories were formulated about what they were really singing.

The top three theories, in order of credability:

3. "I'm blue cos I OD'd and I died, I OD'd and I died"
No right, cause it's about clubbing culture and taking ecstasy. What it's really about is this time the singer did 8 E's and collapsed. S'true. Read it in the Sun.

2. "I'm blue and I'm in need of a guy, I'm in need of a guy."
Okay, what it's actually about is how the bloke needs a good shag. Serious. It was a huge gay anthem for years in the underground scene in Italy. But they were told that it would never be played on the radio with lyrics like that so they had to change. Honest!

1."I'm blue, da ba dee da ba da".
It's just a crap song. Sorry.
