Iron Man 3[edit]

How come there is no mention of this, as the song can be heard during the Marvel Comics opening scene? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.9.43.75 (talk) 03:16, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Are you blind? It is clearly mentioned in the "Appearances in other media " section! Freikorp (talk) 04:34, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Youtube[edit]

I noticed when I edited it there was that section. I doubt it's useful information, but should it be removed? Ryou-kun16 04:47, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

It doesn't seem useful. I say remove it. anemoneIprojectors 10:59, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Lyrics[edit]

There is no source for the statement about the lyrics, and I can't find one. If you listen to the a cappella (assuming the one I have is authentic) it sounds very clearly to be "if I will bleed, I will die". I'm deleting this section pending a source.--71.171.67.152 (talk) 02:52, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree. Any lyrics should only be posted from an authentic source; the band themselves Sophiaaa.x (talk) 16:02, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
I've heard so many people say it's, "If I were green, I would die." Where'd that assumption stem from? DanMat6288 (talk) 03:22, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
I think that there is should be written that there are a few verses about the song's lyrics. "If I was green I would die", "If I will bleed, I will die", "I'm blue and I'm in need of a guy", and so on. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.80.131.132 (talk) 21:19, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
If I remember rightly the "I'm blue, if I were green I would die" lyrics are from when the song was adopted as a football chant by supporters of Rangers F.C.. Opera hat (talk) 22:53, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

No it's "I'm in need of a guy" 24.4.236.247 (talk) 03:28, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Everyone, it's "Da ba dee da ba di". It's even in the title. Jeffrey Jey talked about it in an interview. Holiday56 (talk) 17:40, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes! It is! Everyone's like, "Gee, I think I'll try to find the hidden meeaning of random gibberish! Or better yet, make it up!" Seriously!

The fact that the misheard/made-up lyrics became so prominent that the lead singer had to address the issue and say that they actually are nonsense seems notable enough to include in the article, providing sources can be found on the prominence of the supposed lyrics. In fact, I came here because I expected some note of this fact, since I was trying to remember what the incorrect lyrics were supposed to be (the "If I were green" version - at one point I know I saw a full verse written out that included that line). I knew these were inaccurate but I also remember them being quite widely spread at the time of the song's popularity. Seems like a reasonable thing to mention in the article, if only to clarify that the words are, in fact, nonsense.

Where exactly does Jeffrey Jey refer to the misheard lyrics in interviews, like you say? In my opinion it's more like "How did you came up with the lyrics?" etc. --ChrisHamburg (talk) 05:10, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Other similar songs[edit]

Would it make sense to make a mention of the song "Sugar" by Flo Rida, as it draws heavily on the elements from this one? What about mentions of other related (similar sounding) songs? Seekr of Truth (talk) 19:10, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, the article does mention Flo Rida's "Sugar". Not so sure about other songs though. Holiday56 (talk) 06:50, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Rock Band Network[edit]

Not sure if it's notable but Blue was the first song to be released on the new RBN 2.0 meaning it is the first network song to contain keyboards, it was mentioned on the bands website. 211.30.42.24 (talk) 12:08, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

suicide[edit]

The song is about depression and suicide, "I'm blue" is "I'm sad" and "Daboodeedaboodye" is a sound alteration of the words "In Albudine I will die" a week after this song was released the person who wrote it commited suicide in Albudine. Listen close and you'll see I'm right. What you just listened to was a clever way for a guy to tell people he's depressed and is going to kill himself in a specific place. Scary, huh? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.36.160.143 (talk) 21:31, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Bullshit. --ChrisHamburg (talk) 22:02, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Shame all of them who wrote it are still alive.

Never mind

Misheard Lyrics Videos[edit]

There are 2 links in the article for youtube videos that are supposed to be misheard lyrics. I've watched both, and personally I think the links should be removed. The videos are ridiculous as they are filled with "misheard lyrics" that aren't actually misheard at all. Some of the words don't sound anything like the supposed misheard lyrics, and so I think the videos lose credibility. It's just people making videos with randomly chosen lyrics. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.97.147.83 (talk) 11:57, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

It is already there: "The song is also used in the films and Loser (2000), Big Fat Liar (2002) and Iron Man 3 (2013), during a flashback scene set in 1999, the year the song was released." Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 03:26, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Inconsistency in release date[edit]

There seems to be some inconsistency in the article concerning the release date of the song. The beginning of the article reads: " It was released in 1999 as the lead single from their debut album Europop (1999)" While the info box for the article reads: Released 1998.

I have no experience editing wikipedia so i just came here. Rasmustrew (talk) 09:18, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Little editing[edit]

Good evening, I have to edit the Voice. "Blue" is not the highest peak ever reached by an italian song in the USA. "Volare" by Domenico Modugno topped the Hot 100 in 1959. And "Al di là" by Emilio Pericoli also reached number 6 in Billboard Hot 100. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.38.222.92 (talk) 22:55, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
