Eat to the Beat was the first ever “video album”, meaning it was commercially released on home video simultaneously with the audio album. Every song on the album has a corresponding music video.

Deborah Harry mentioned during the UK tour for this album that she enjoyed singing Accidents Never Happen and Shayla the most.

According to the liner notes of 1994 compilation The Platinum Collection the song Slow Motion was originally planned to be the fourth single release from the album, and Mike Chapman even made single remix of the track, but following the unexpected success of Call Me, the theme song to movie American Gigolo, these plans were shelved and the single mix remains unreleased. An alternate mix of the track entitled The Stripped Down Motown Mix did however turn up on one of the many remix singles issued by Chrysalis/EMI in the mid 1990’s.
