The 66 year old is currently enjoying a European vacation with his girlfriend Lisa Parigi and during a visit to a local bar, the DJ decided to pay tribute to the star by blasting his 1983 classic.

Video footage of the incident, obtained by, shows Richie, who was clearly in a good mood, climb onto a table and grab an open bottle of Champagne, which he sprays over drunk revellers as he jams to the track.

The soul veteran proved he still knows how to have fun in June (15), when he celebrated his hit performance at Britain's Glastonbury Festival by throwing a wild afterparty in London.

Richie, who drew the biggest crowd of the three-day event when he performed for around 100,000 festival-goers, recently recalled, "We were drinking Champagne like you hadn't drunk it before... Every once in a while you have to just let it go... As I say to my kids, some days it's do as I say, not as I do...

"We were celebrating until the wee hours of the morning. It was about 4.30am/5am, I went to bed... We were raging. The days of dancing on the ceiling are over - I was hanging off the ceiling after that performance."
