mega classic

January 25, 2008

my buddy, who shall be known hereforth as “big worm,” reminded me of this amazing song. some of you will remember eddie murphy’s short but legendary foray into R&B pop…after you watch this, go get a copy of RAW or DELERIOUS and remember why we loved eddie in the first place.

  8. KATHYxx on January 26, 2008 at 9:31 am

    i haven’t heard that song in a long time..

    what’s with ll the youtube strangeness?

  9. Astat on January 26, 2008 at 9:19 am

    Mike, I dunno if anybody’s alerted you to this, but a LOT of people in non-U.S. countries, for some unknown reason, can’t view videos on LP’s Youtube channel. They get the message “This video is unavailable in your country.”

  10. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 8:21 am

    please, watch these videos, if you don’t like them, you can block my user or exclui from ur site, alright?

  11. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 8:20 am

    this song really beautiful… “ANGEL” from Jon Secada.

  12. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 8:14 am

    and this is a great dimond of all times, it calls: “MY SWEET LORD” from George Harrison. it’s the concert of blangdesh show alive.
    i hope you like it.

  13. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 8:07 am

    other from Julian… this calls VALOTTE

  14. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 8:05 am

    and that i think you had heard too. it’s from Julian Lennon (John Lennon’s son). this song calls : Too Late For Goodbyes.
    I hope you enjoy it.

  15. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 7:46 am

    oh, mike! since we are in the session nostalgy, I’ll gonna show you a video that I believe that you’ll gonna love! it calls “hey bulldog” from the beatles with your friend Paul McCartney and the excentric but not more less great, our beloved John Lennon. This video was done in studio, so it doesn’t have those funny anime from the “yellow submarine film” but there are Paul and John in the estudio . If I’m not deceit, the video is from 1967. I hope you enjoy it a lot.

  16. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 7:22 am

    hahahahaha! dude, are talking serious? i’m really happy for his “short but legendary foray into R&B pop” was short! and he perfered to folow the actor carrier than the singer carrier cuz he sings like Michael Jackson but with a voice more strident and fine! hahahahaha! mmmmmike, with this taste i have a doubt sometimes if you really are deaf! sorry, but when you said: “eddie murphyโ€™s short but legendary foray into R&B popโ€ฆafter you watch this, go get a copy of RAW or DELERIOUS

  17. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 26, 2008 at 7:22 am

    and remember why we loved eddie in the first place.” i ask myself: “he really heard this video?” ok, ok, ok. i know, eddie is amazing comedian actor, not only comedian, but a complete actor ( save that he’s a terribel singer , here in brazil we would say that he has a taquara cracked voice) one of the bests actor of our history, but it’s not for this reason that i’ll say that he is a great singer, cuz he is not and I dare myself to say that if you think that he is a great singer, you need to hear me singing. i sing more better than him…hahahahahaha, sorry for the playing! i respect your opinion and i know that you don’t need my aprovation. kisses. michelle.

  18. KellyKasulis on January 26, 2008 at 5:55 am

    Woah. I had NO IDEA that Eddie Murphy once sang. I just thought he was a comedian from the start.

    Hah, and oddly enough, I really like that song.๐Ÿ˜„

  19. Peryman on January 26, 2008 at 5:03 am

    Haha. Mike. RAW AND DELIRIOUS are the best things eddie has ever done. i would pay to see him do stand up again

    Nice post

  20. svetok on January 26, 2008 at 3:38 am

    wow! i love this song!! its so pozitive)))))
    i think its awesome that ur next single is given up! u rock!!!
    pleaseeeee ome to russia again!!! we miss u so much!!!

  21. MargauX on January 26, 2008 at 2:37 am

    Yo Mike! I remember one thing during the conert u’ve done in Paris… Between the first group (who was terrible compared to Linkin Park) and u, there were only rap songs and I was knowing all of them. Very good sound!! Thanks for all.

  22. enjoi on January 26, 2008 at 1:59 am

    listen bro! Remember that time we were stuck on that cliff and then van halen played that solo that opened up the path to get down? Eddie murphy is even better than that.

    negative two, divided by 3, add 6.

  23. Noda89 on January 25, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    o-m-effin-g, i have this on my ipod. now i shall go listen to it๐Ÿ˜„

  24. Kira on January 25, 2008 at 7:09 pm

    you may remember he also did a song with michael jackson. and i already own a copy of raw. the purple leather suit was stylin’. unfortunately, i’ve never seen delirious.

  25. beamer87 on January 25, 2008 at 6:35 pm

    Party All The Time was a sick song, this was obviously before, or maybe even during the time that Rick James started to lose it, although I believe that he was never really there in the first place. This was no doubt Eddie Murphy in his prime.

  26. nillp on January 25, 2008 at 6:07 pm

    oh, and btw.. if given up will really be the next single.. just one word.. AMAZING. :DDDDDD

  27. nillp on January 25, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    this is one of those songs that if u hear once, u’ll keep singing it the whole day.. x)

    and one of those that u’ll always remember..

    definitely, this is a mega classic..๐Ÿ™‚

  28. ShadowerLiltani on January 25, 2008 at 5:32 pm

    Oh wow… I never knew he did any singing. The earliest thing I remember (This probably has to do with the fact that I was born in ’86…, and by the time I was old enough to remember this stuff, the 80’s were on their way out) is the ice cream bit… Ya know, “I got some ice cream, and you can’t get none, cause you’re on welfare… Wanna lick? Psych! I got some ice cream…”๐Ÿ˜„ Oh god, and then when he drops the ice cream cone/microphone… Hah, they play it on inside the actors studio once in a while. Yeah, so, anyways, thank you for sharing this, another thing for me to add into my memory bank ^___^ dances

  29. shan1105 on January 25, 2008 at 5:03 pm

    Wow i . I did love to watch Raw though back in the day. well mike thanks for another forgotten moment in 80’s history Hey we can’t say actors shouldn’t crossover, chester had a brief acting role in crank but his talent is much more appreciated in the music world.

  30. joanamae on January 25, 2008 at 4:57 pm

    Hi mike! hope you’re doing good.
    ADVANCE HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! hope your read my post๐Ÿ˜‰

    Take care๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Sashy on January 25, 2008 at 4:43 pm

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    “Happy Perth Day”

    It’s Australia Day, and I just woke up and found that LOVELY video in my inbox. Now I’m even more bummed that I didn’t get picked for the M&G!

    I swear I’ll watch this youtube later, I love Eddie’s work.

  32. murry on January 25, 2008 at 3:30 pm

    That’s not why I loved Eddie in the first place. I loved Eddie for the following reasons:

    1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9cQOcAC_K8

    2) The sun’s gonna shine.

    3) The flower’s gonna grow.

    4) Prince Akeem: Good morning, my neighbors!
    Voice: Hey, fuck you!
    Prince Akeem: [genuinely happy] Yes, yes! Fuck you too!

  33. supremeo2 on January 25, 2008 at 3:06 pm

    ha I’m so out-of-date, I remember the song but never knew who sang it, now I know lmao I didn’t even know he sang lol thanks Mike!

  34. DaniShinoda on January 25, 2008 at 2:45 pm

    Awesome and very old video, I think it’s not from my epoch.. hahahahaha
    I think this videos are great, and I like Eddie Murphy too! ;D
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  35. StrangeGirl1 on January 25, 2008 at 2:33 pm

    ……..and then when you are done with Eddie you can move on to hearing some Bruce: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ni90iL81wTQ

  36. ManBearPig on January 25, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    Oh my yes!

    Odd that me and friends were discussing this not a few days ago.

    Very nice Mike. Very nice indeed.๐Ÿ˜€

  37. JazzyJaz on January 25, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    xxxjazzy jazxxx

  38. xLinkinParkFanx on January 25, 2008 at 1:53 pm

    dude! I remember this song. :] niiice. have a good day guys.

  39. twix on January 25, 2008 at 1:47 pm

    Looks like one of those video’s where Eddie will look back in his life and wonder, “what was I thinking??”

    OK, maybe not…but I would!!

  40. analoggirl on January 25, 2008 at 12:51 pm

    I love this song – and I’m not being sarcastic. I think it’s a guilty pleasure for a lot people.

    BTW, Rick James’s cameo made this video. The scene in the recording booth was intense. lol

  41. LPKelly on January 25, 2008 at 12:50 pm

    I heard that LP coming to Latvia and I wanted to know if that’s true, tickest are all ready at sale, but there’s nothing about Latvia on your official pages and I thought that maybe it’s some kind of a fraud or something… I’m sorry that I posted this here, but I really wanted to know if there’s any reason to get excited about you coming to Latvia๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you in advance, in case you answer this๐Ÿ™‚

  42. asianotter on January 25, 2008 at 12:27 pm

    LOL! . . . mega classic! too funny. thanks for digging this one up!

  43. AnVanoppens on January 25, 2008 at 12:05 pm

    awesome, mike!!!! keep posting! ^^ and see you at the M&G in london!!!!!!!! ; ))) An xxx

  44. outlawserenade on January 25, 2008 at 11:49 am

    We love eddie murphy? o.O Seriously, after seeing Party all the Time, I’ll forever be reminded why actors should never go singing. The only one who did well in both was..

    ..er…

    thinks

    thinks real hard

    okay, forget I ever made that last sentence. >.>

    Hmm.. I just noticed that if there are less than 100 comments, the ones I make actually showed up immediately…

  45. Zogo on January 25, 2008 at 11:48 am

    oooh, I forgot something. I don’t know, if my comment to the popstars video was really posted, but if you want to know what they are saying in the video, I can help you because I’m German and the German they talk isn’t hard to translate. So if you want, send me a message at LPN to zogo.
    bye

  46. Zogo on January 25, 2008 at 11:44 am

    YEEEY! Eddy Murphy as a singer!! Omg… I always heard something about it but I’ve always been too lazy for looking up a video. Maybe because I don’t like this kind oof music^^ But it’s cool to see such stuff on your site.
    I always send the link of your page to my friends, who aren’t actually Linkin Park Fans, and they always asked me from where you get this cool stuff.
    Compliments

  47. SandraD06 on January 25, 2008 at 11:26 am

    wow i never seen this video before. i never thought that he can sing.
    i always thought that he was just an actor. lol great video!!!! take care
    mike, and god bless!!!!!

  48. 1voice on January 25, 2008 at 11:09 am

  50. Blak_Rabbit on January 25, 2008 at 10:24 am

    GAWD!! that wass ages ago…good times, good times. very nostalgic…you should have a “nostalgic time with Mike” or somethin’. show some 90’s Nickelodeon (Legends of the Hidden Temple, GUTS, Pete n Pete…etc.) or old power rangers before they went retarded XD! Love ya , Man.

  58. Anstice on January 25, 2008 at 8:29 am

    What th—-Oh dear. Poor Eddie Murphy shouldn’t quit his day job :S. He’s an okay singer, but the acting is about…uhh….10,000,000 times better. ‘Nuff said๐Ÿ˜›

  59. uarpig on January 25, 2008 at 6:42 am

    dear mike.. how do u do?
    today is cold and rainy.. i hate this weather..
    i suffer a lot…. ><…
    with strong wind and heavy rain, i need to go to school… it’s a tragedy…
    however, listening to LP’s songs keep me warm…..!

  60. Helios_LP on January 25, 2008 at 6:07 am

    The video is cool .
    It’s nice to know when eddie murphy started singing.
    But the video is old . I think it’s even older than me lol
    How do you find these stuff mike ?

  61. AS_21 on January 25, 2008 at 6:06 am

    wow… I DO know that song… but i didn’t know that’s eddie… I like it… ^^ and there’s already new version of that song… but I rather that one…๐Ÿ™‚

  62. Jane_yao on January 25, 2008 at 5:41 am

    mike!!! eddie, i knew that he is a comedy actor. Now when i listen this song . it’s nice.
    Hope you have a good tour in following monthes. Hope you and other LP’s members come to Beijing of China as soon as possible !๐Ÿ™‚

  63. nillp on January 25, 2008 at 5:36 am

    yeah.. like the donkey, but he sings.. lol

    here you can see..๐Ÿ™‚

  64. keineAhnung on January 25, 2008 at 4:58 am

    well, I think I’d rather stay with that audiofiles I got just a few secs ago…it’s some stuff of a band called linkin park (maybe you’ve already heard about them)…it’s a live cd from a concert they’ve played in hannover…and there’s that guy, I think he’s called mike shinoda, he sings a piece of “just like heaven” by the cure…it sounds awesome!!!…I really started to cry when I listened to the files, because I couldn’t be there myself and now hearing how great it was, is really bad…

  65. MoneS on January 25, 2008 at 4:48 am

    he sings in shrek??? really??? i didn’t know… love that 80’s stuff too, but i can’t take eddie seriously…

    btw: it was cool to hear in between live… but… was it intended to end this way?? ;P

  66. karolp on January 25, 2008 at 4:27 am

    Hi Mike !!! I love your posts !! I don’t knew that Eddi Murphy sing… and good lucky for you (LP) there in your european performances !!! kisses for you and for everyone of the band ;*

  67. nillp on January 25, 2008 at 4:19 am

    yeaah. eddie murphy really rocks..! i do love these 80’s stuffs..๐Ÿ˜€

    he’s a good singer.. too bad he doesn’t sing more.. ~[besides in ‘shrek’]~

    the show yesterday, was really great..!๐Ÿ™‚

  68. Mickey on January 25, 2008 at 4:18 am

    Heh, that was amusing. It must’ve been from the 80’s or something. And I’m sorry. I heart Eddie Murphy…but as a comedian and an actor…not as a singer. He sounds like someone’s got a grip on his balls. Please…let go of them, whoever you are!
    Thanks for the laugh, Mike.
