I've been a big fan of Eddie Murphy and his Reggae Band ever since the release of their 1980 album, Kill The White People. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Kill The White People where Eddie Murphy's presence became more apparent. I think Honkie Town was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Murphy, Williams and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Crackers. In this song, Eddie Murphy addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep with Whitey is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole.

/Oh, hell yeah...

If we can all pack into a Delorean and go back to 1990.

He should do more stuff like Boogie In Your Butt.

'I didn't want to leave it at 'Party All the Time,'' says Murphy.

And yet the rest of us were praying that you would.

Is Ric James going to produce, biatches?

Beyond all the joking that will come because it is Eddie Murphy, and "Party All The Time".... I thought this was a pretty good song, and I thought the video was effective.  Kudos to Eddie.

Dammit, it's in my head!

And now it's in YOUR HEAD!

"Cool" tag?

F*ck you subby.

In 1985, I was a young nightclub DJ that was required to play that goddamned song 3 times an hour,
every hour, for a 7 hour shift, for several months. Now, 28 years later, the effects of long term exposure to that song has left me disabled, and I have to hire a law firm to try and get SSI benefits.

I am going to nominate "Party All The Time" as the new Rick Roll.

And I'll use it in every thread I see you in.

NO!
NO!

Not until you make another good movie like Beverley Hills Cop or Trading Places or 48 Hours.
You do that, then and only then can you come out of your room and do what you want.

His next cover song, for the bridge and tunnel crowd:

I'm a big fan of his song "Wookin' Pa Nub".

The new stuff isn't bad actually....
 
2013-09-09 10:53:20 PM
Did he actually perform the songs attributed to him on his first album?  I've always suspected not.
 
2013-09-09 10:56:29 PM
Good on him.

He's made his fortune and sold away his comedic rep by doing Disney shiat for the last forever, so it's just as well that he go and use that money that he's made to do what he really wants to do with his life.

And even if he's terrible at it, he's doing what he loves and that's all that really matters.

I know a couple who used that song to potty train their daughter.  They recorded the chorus and sang it as "my girl wants to potty all the time, potty all the time..." whenever the toddler did her business.  The daughter says she STILL hears that song play in her head whenever she visits the lav.

No matter what Eddie Murphy did in the 80s, it doesn't approach the badness of what Bruce Willis attempted.

/yet I have both songs on my iPod
 
2013-09-09 11:06:35 PM
He might as well. It's not like he has a film career anymore. I think A Thousand Words was the last straw.

Close.
She was the one he got caught driving around LA with and one of a handful of transsexual prostitutes that came forward afterward to say he likes girls with extra parts.  All the others recanted (They were paid. Everyone says that in celebrity scandals, I know, but for whatever reason they actually declared their payoffs for taxes which led right back to Murphy when someone looked into it.) except the Samoan, who conveniently fell off the roof of her building.

I am not making this up, it was a big weird scandal for a while and still gets mentioned on gossip sites and tabloids.

If Disney approached me and said "Stop doing comedy for 20 years and we'll give you more money than you could ever spend", I'd do it. In a heartbeat. You may not find him funny but I bet he'd think your bank account is hilarious.

I actually saw that "Return of Bruno" record for sale for a whopping $2.99 at a used record store TODAY

It was not embarrassingly bad, but he sings reggae like a white dude, NTTAWWT. Sounds almost like a warped tour band. I guess reggae just doesn't sound the same with a Jamaican accent; but if you're not Jamaican and you have the accent you lose credibility.
 
2013-09-10 01:22:28 AM
