Eiffel 65 is an Italian three-piece Eurodance group formed in 1998 and best known for pioneering in pitch correction and Auto-Tune, and 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 album Europop, released in late 1999. The name "Eiffel" was chosen randomly by a computer program and the "65" was scribbled onto their name on a demo by mistake; it was actually part of a phone number.
Eiffel 65 achieved considerable success in Italy, the rest of Europe, United States, and Canada. Europop peaked in the top five on the Billboard 200, was at the top of the MuchMusic countdown, and sold over two million units. "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" peaked at #6 on the Billboard charts.
Discover Eiffel 65's latest release available in Italian ("Panico") and in English ("Critical").
The track peaked at nr. 26 in the Italian Dance Itunes chart.

Contact! - Eiffel 65
Contact! is the second album by Eiffel 65, released in 2001.
The album's sound is very different from the group's first album Europop (1999), taking influence from French house à la Daft Punk.
It also incorporates synthpop elements.
However, the harder and more metallic Eurodance sound of their earlier work occasionally shines through on some tracks
Europop - Eiffel 65
Europop is the debut album by Italian electronic group Eiffel 65.
The album was released in 1999 as under Bliss Corporation and Universal Records and Republic Music (Universal and Republic would merge to Universal Republic).
Featuring pitch-corrected vocals and Eurodisco beats throughout, the album is most notable for the group's two biggest hits: "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" and "Move Your Body", which topped the charts worldwide. Despite hailing from Italy, Eiffel 65 performs all songs on this album in English. It is widely considered as a landmark album of the 1990s and was critical in opening Eurodance to a global audience.
The album peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 in the United States, and the song "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, impressive for an EDM song at the time of its release.
In February 2000, the album was certified two-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of two million copies in the US.
In a list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1990s by Channel 4, Europop came out at number 1 on the list.
