Diddy’s long history of plundering the most obvious pop hits from years past is apparently continuing, as MTV reports that he’s working with Fat Joe on a song based around Eddie Murphy’s “Party All The Time.” When I told Jess about this news, he just typed “no.” over and over again into his IM window–even though the prospect of a Ma$e remix is high! But his reaction prompted me to let all of you know something: I don’t think “Party All The Time,” which was a Z100 staple back in the station’s earliest days, is all that bad. Sure, Eddie Murphy can’t really sing and the whole song sounds like it’s been coated in an inch-thick layer of blow, but Murphy’s crap voice makes it sort of fun (and easy!) to sing along with. Not to mention that Ted Leo covered it on the street and it made him more money than any other song from Blender‘s worst-songs-ever list. So I throw it to you, readers: Is “Party All The Time” a secret smash, or does it deserve to be swept into history’s dustbin? Poll after the jump.
