East Side Guys – “Eddie Murphy”

There’s a story behind this. A friend of mine wrote this song for his band the East Side Guys. The track title is Eddie Murphy which made me laugh when I read it. I didn’t necessarily picture Eddie Murphy when I heard it but now there’s no way to separate the two. It’s Eddie Murphy just like my friend’s cat is Cosby Show. Projects come and go. Some get made, some end up forgotten or in the trash. Over the years Eddie Murphy is a project that has managed to hover at the bottom of my to-do list, always getting pushed down by new ideas but never forgotten. Eight years later here it is in all it’s stupid glory; a little music video for a band that no longer exists.
