Song #1: “Party All The Time” — Eddie Murphy
Hey all, sorry, I’m running out of time and don’t have it in me to list the other 40 songs in my Top 50 list. Rather than make you wait, I’m just going to jump ahead and reveal the No. 1 hit. It’s a tough call, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging. So do your best Casey Kasem imitation as you read this: my favorite song of all time.
Most people thought it was a huge mistake when Eddie Murphy announced he was quitting comedy to become a rock star. The comedienne had the last laugh though when he hired Rick James Bitch to produce what became his number one hit, “Party All the Time.” This club smash came out in a point in my life when I was very vulnerable, after my last grilfriend had broken up with me, and gave me the fortitude to dance down the dorm hallway with nothing but a towel on my head. It was intoxicating, like a zen koan, but on drugs. I still sing it everyday in the shower to start my morning, and you no doubt will find it stuck in your head all day today. You’re welcome, and thanks for listening.
