"Blue Room" is a single by The Orb. It was released on 8 June 1992 on Big Life Records. Gallup, who compiled the UK singles chart, had recently decided that any release with more than 40 minutes of play would be classified as an album rather than single. The Orb thus decided to record a 39:57 version of "Blue Room" for a special release. "Blue Room" is the longest single to ever reach the UK charts, a record the song will retain as current rules will not count singular songs past 15 minutes. "Blue Room" entered the charts at position twelve and peaked at number eight. An edited version appears on the album U.F.Orb. The full version features a number of samples, including a small bit of the beginning of the "Mysterious Traveller" by Weather Report and a damaged portion of "Happy Birthday To

La version originale dure 40 minutes, la deuxième version dure 17 minutes et, enfin, la version 7" dure 4 minutes. Depuis sa sortie en 1992, dans l'album U.F.Orb, qui est le troisième album du groupe, ce single est considéré comme le pilier de l'ambient house, influençant de nombreux artistes comme Brian Eno ou Tangerine Dream. * Portail de la musique électronique Portail de la musique électronique * Portail de la musique Portail de la musique • section Chanson (fr)

The Orb caused controversy by appearing on Top of the Pops to promote the single. Instead of performing, Alex Paterson and Kris Weston played chess. The performance had a profound impact on Robbie Williams who later declared "that Top of the Pops changed my life". (en)
