"Party All the Time" is a 1985 single by comedian and actor Eddie Murphy, written and produced by Rick James and Kevin Johnston. It was the lead single from Murphy's debut album How Could It Be. The single was recorded at James' home studio in Buffalo, New York. It reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks, behind "Say You, Say Me" by Lionel Richie. Rick James also provided vocals for the song.
The lyrics are a lament by the singer that despite the expensive, extravagant things he lavishes on his girlfriend, she much prefers spending time going out clubbing, dancing, partying, as well as flirting and cheating with other men, rather than being with her boyfriend and remaining faithful to him.
Since 2014, the song has enjoyed a mini resurgence in Scotland thanks largely to the supporters of St Johnstone F.C., who now have adopted it as an unofficial club anthem.
