The Story of "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" by Eiffel 65

I was watching this short documentary and was fascinated to see at 05:38 an Atari Falcon being used to make a world dance hit.

I am an Amiga fan in all aspects, but can recognize the Falcon was a very good machine.

Well, Calvin Harris made his earliest hits on an Amiga 1200, so that balances things out.

Well, I'd say quite a lot of more hits were produced using Atari ST's and Falcons than Amigas

Well, yes, seeing as how MIDI ports came as standard on the ST/Falcon. What I meant to say was not so "balancing things out", but "representing the Amiga"

Yea, the midi ports... but... the Atari Falcon had 8 stereo channels with 16bit depth at 50khz. Not that I care. It's just too bad Jack Tramiel had to leave CBM.

Ironic, Amiga owed Atari money... maybe the real tragedy is that Amiga wanted to get out from under Jack's thumb so bad. The "Atari Amiga" might have got better games and still be a force to be reckoned with for a few years more.

Never would've happened. Jack was all for sacking the Amiga development but keeping the custom chips. What a moronic move that would've been.

Well, to be honest, Commodore nearly did the same thing. They barely improved upon the original chipset from 1985 and allowed the PC to catch up. The only improvement to reach production came after 7 years and was AGA, which was way too little, way too late.
