Eiffel 65 - A long shot

Producers of electronic dance music from Turin.

According to Wikipedia the name was chosen at random by a computer program and later the number 65 was added by mistake (being the first two digits of a phone number jotted down on a demo tape).

Altogether many coincidences, so it is not surprising that some fans look out for another explanation for the band name. There are those who take the obvious viewpoint that there is a connection with La Tour Eiffel in Paris, the three hundred meters high iron latice relic of the world exhibition of 1889, now pretty much the most visited tourist attraction of the City of Light. And what about 65? That would be a remnant of 1665: the number of steps that according to the official Eiffel Tower website are to be climbed to reach the top of the Tour.
