"Bumble Bees" (originally called "Bumble Bee") is a song recorded by Danish-Norwegian dance-pop group Aqua. It was released as their eleventh single overall, and the third from their album Aquarius. The song more closely resembled their earlier releases, not possessing the slower beat of "Turn Back Time" or the anthemic, orchestral features of "Cartoon Heroes". The song was released in several European nations in August 2000. It also peaked at number 6 in Denmark and at number 34 in Sweden.

Music video[edit]

The video for the song was one of five Aqua videos directed by Peder Pedersen. It parodied the group's status as a 'Barbie band', gained due to the success of their breakthrough hit "Barbie Girl". It featured the group trying to make a good music video, but being hampered by a poor director, faulty equipment and the weight of René Dif being too much for a backstage crewman holding his support rope.
