Clearly, it's a shout-out (and possibly slam at) Suzanne Vega- one of her first breakout songs was "Small, Blue Thing". One of the Giants has it in for her, and this is questioning her place in the music world.
This song is about that blue thing and what it is doing here. --Salio-Shally 23:38, June 14, 2008

I've always imagined it as one of those blue toilet pucks. ~Brian Griffin 21:25, August 31, 2011
"Blue Thing" has made me think of the TARDIS as well.
