Talk about a blast from the past! The band’s name is Eiffel 65. Eiffel was chosen randomly by a computer program and 65 was accidentally added to their name on a demo CD. The band consisted of Gabry Ponte (left), Maury Lobina (center), and Jeffrey Jey (right). Their albums include: Europop, Contact!, and Eiffel 65. Europop was their most popular album, containing their number one hit Blue(Da Ba Dee) and their also popular songs, Move Your Body, and Too Much of Heaven. Their song Blue was #1 on the charts in 18 countries when in debuted, including France, Spain, Germany, the UK, Ireland, and Australia to name a few. The band’s genre is electronica/dance/europop. Unfortunately, the band split in 2006 when their DJ, Gabry Ponte, went solo. I actually rediscovered this band because my boyfriend loves them, and now, many techno dances and europop car rides later, i’m in love with them too. If you’re looking for their best album to buy, I’d definately recommend Europop. It contains all of their major hits and is just fun and relaxing to listen to.

3oh3 is a band that I discovered a few monthes ago. The two person band consists of Nathaniel Motte(left) and Sean Foreman(right), both from Boulder, Colorado (area code 303). They met at the University of Colorado and their band was formed in 2004. Their first album 3OH!3 was released in 2007 and they shortly after played in Denver for warped tour. On July 8, 2008, their second album, Want was released and that same year they signed to play for all concerts in warped tour except Philadelphia. Some of their more famous songs include: Punk Bitch, Starstrukk, and Don’t Trust Me. 3oh3’s genre is mainly electronica. Personally, I think they are a great band and fun to listen to. They are signed to play for warped tour 2009- so be there!
