Before Eddie Murphy was bagging Scary Spice and Babyface’s ex-wife in the same month, he was a fairly insecure young man when it came to women. Actually, he probably still is. Recorded in 1985, the song was produced by Rick James. This must’ve been before he kicked mud on Eddie’s couch. And I’m not sure if everyone knows this, but Party All The Time peaked at number 2 on the Billboard charts. Not bad for a comedian. The song isn’t great, but it’s very 80s.
- Who put the dirty mop on Rick James’ head?
- How come Eddie didn’t say, “Yo, turn me up in the headphones,”?
- Is Rick wearing leather pants?
- That one dude in the studio looks like a tall Michael Bivins.
- And were all those people in the studio Eddie’s posse?
- This might possibly be the greatest verse in music history: I’ve seen you in clubs just hanging out and dancing/You give your number to every man you see/You never come home at night because you’re out romancing/I wish you bring some of your love home to me.
- Why is that one dude touching himself at the 2:28 mark?
- I wonder if Rick burned the naked girl before or after the making of this video?
That was the only song that you could get through on his debut album How Could It Be. I guess the world wasn’t ready for sensitive Ed. He would go on a release a much better album (we are talking Eddie Murphy here) called Love’s Alright which included a very memorable song with Michael Jackson called Whatzupwitu which featured Eddie and MJ floating in the video. No word on if Mike gave him a kick and a “hee hee” for making fun of his crying in the song She’s Out Of My Life.
