Han’s Worst Hits of the 80’s- today- Party All The Time by Eddie Murphy. Why is it that so many who are great at something- want to be something else? As Harry Callahan once said “A man’s got to know his limitations.” Actors want to be rock stars- rock stars want to be actors. Billionaires who are not well known by the general public like to buy sports teams and think because they are smart and made a fortune in business that they can buy a new toy the team- and run it successfully when they really know nothing about the sport. Eddie Murphy back in the 80’s was a highly successful comedian and actor. That wasn’t enough he had to be a singer too. Or at least try- he wasn’t much of one as this song demonstrates. Incredibly this song reached #2 on the Hot 100 in 1985- only Lionel Richie’s “Say You, Say Me’ kept it from #1. Rick James who was hot at the time wrote, produced and sang on the song- which has to be the only reason it became a hit. Murphy wasn’t much of a singer. He did have one more hit “Put Your Mouth On Me” #27 in 1989. A man’s got to know his limitations.



  1. Your comment re: football team owners is so on in this area (Washington DC area) – Dan Snyder has driven the Redskins into the ground – complete incompetence at the top. He needs to sell the team, take his money and get out. The Skins have never been the same after Joe Gibbs retired the first time and Snyder bought the team a few years later.

    • I agree with you on Snyder- he’s been a disaster. He’s only 54 for the sake of Redskins fans I would hope he gets bored and moves on. Some of these fellas just don’t get it. Being good at one thing doesn’t mean you can run a football team. Hire the best football men you can and get out of the way. Snider needs to go on a long World Tour for a couple years. Then maybe the Redskins could get things going in the right direction.

    • I am hoping Jerry Jones- who is 76 lives forever- he will forever be meddling in with the cowboys- they’ve won nothing since his split with Jimmy Johnson…

  2. And yeah, I don’t think you can even really call this an Eddie Murphy song – he basically just sings the lead (badly) – seems like he can’t even lip synch the vocals too well in the video!

  3. It is weird, huh? Why did Michael Jordan have to venture into other sports? Why did Sting want to act? (Although he wasn’t half-bad in Dune, was he? Except for that diaper thing he was wearing!)
    Who said all evil in the world stems from people not being able to sit quietly in a room by themself….?

  4. This is almost like a clip to insert into one of his Beverly Hills Cop movies. Aha I just looked it up on imdb and the first one was in 84. And the way they have Rick James in the sound room when he was really providing the vocals for the song. What a faux, but horrible hit.
