Ghostbusters – RAY PARKER JR.

The song “Ghostbusters” was written by Ray Parker Jr. as the theme for the film of the same name. It appears on the film’s soundtrack. It was nominated for Best Original Song at the 57th Academy Awards, but lost to Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called to Say I Love You.”.

Background Ghostbusters

The film’s producers asked Parker to write the film’s theme song, even though he had only a few days to do so, and it seemed impossible to incorporate the film’s title into any lyrics. When Parker was watching television late at night, he saw a cheap commercial for a local service that reminded him of the fictional business’s advertisement in the film. He envisioned the song as a pseudo-advertising jingle that the business could have commissioned as a promotion.

On his interview disc Words & Music [A Retrospective], Lindsey Buckingham stated that he was approached to write the Ghostbusters theme because of his successful work on Harold Ramis’s National Lampoon’s Vacation, “Holiday Road“. He declined the opportunity because he did not wish to be known as a soundtrack artist.

Music video

Video for the song was directed by Ivan Reitman, who directed the Ghostbusters film, and produced by Jeffrey Abelson. It revolves around a young woman, played by Cindy Harrell, who is haunted by a ghost played by Parker, wandering an all-black house interior (with neon colors highlighting the sparse architectural and industrial features) until she calls the police.

The music video for “Ghostbusters” was directed by Reitman, and featured cameos by Chevy Chase, Irene Cara, John Candy, Melissa Gilbert, Ollie E. Brown, Jeffrey Tambor, George Wendt, Al Franken, Danny DeVito, Carly Simon, Peter Falk, and Teri Garr. Neither of the actors was paid for participating, but they did so as a favor to Reitman.

At the end of the video, Parker and the Ghostbuster stars dance down the streets of New York City in full Ghostbuster costumes. A sizable crowd can still be seen in the background, even though the crew closed down Times Square to film the scene. As well as the Real Ghostbusters cartoon series, the Ghostbusters performed the same dance in a 2009 video game trailer.

Darias Version of this Song

Daria blends perfectly into her two roles. No wonder she knows exactly what it’s like to play another person. What she has learned over the years in private life. So a perfect video that Daria and Sergey deliver together with the band.
