GHOSTBUSTERS SONG AS BIG AS THE MOVIE
1984 - The movie Ghostbusters escapes the vault and is released unto audiences. It is a huge success, and still has a cult following. The theme song by Ray Parker Jr is just a big - creating that familiar phrase "WHO YOU GONNA CALL".
The song has a rather interesting story - stayed at #1 on the Billboard charts for three weeks, nominated for an academy award for best original song, and it also caused a lawsuit.
HUEY LEWIS SUED Ray Parker Jr for plagarism!
Huey claimed the melody was straight from his 'I want a new drug' song.
Strangely, Huey was asked to work on the theme for Ghostbusters, but, turned it down b/c he was working on the music for another huge 80s movie - Back to the Future! You think he was just jealous? He wanted to be known as the 80s movie theme song master?! Maybe.
|Who you gonna call?|
|Help find Fang|
|William Shatner could well be in the next Ghostbusters movie|
|Paraplasmo levels must be off the charts - janitors with masks too!|
|Remember, you are wearing a nuclear device on your back - don't cross the streams!|
|Mmm ecto plasma juice - tastes like chicken|
|Didn't stay puffed|
|Remember playing this on Atari|
|Harder than it looks|
I do think it would be cool to have a ghostbusters shirt...
|I've been slimed|
Until next time...
