About Ghostbusters

"Ghostbusters" is a song written by Ray Parker Jr. as the theme to the film of the same name starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson. Debuting at #68 on June 16, 1984, the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on August 11, 1984, staying there for three weeks, and at number two on the UK Singles Chart on September 16, 1984, staying there for three weeks. The song re-entered the UK Top 75 on November 2, 2008, at No. 49. It was nominated at the 57th Academy Awards for Best Original Song, but lost to Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called to Say I Love You". A lawsuit, regarding Parker's plagiarism of Huey Lewis and the News's song "I Want a New Drug", resulted in Lewis receiving a settlement. The drums used in this song are the famous LinnDrum drum machine effects, which had its samples heavily edited to give the song both a serious and eerie feeling at the same time.

Ghostbusters!
If there's something strange
In your neighborhood
Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!

If there's something weird
And it don't look good
Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!

I ain't 'fraid of no ghost
I ain't 'fraid of no ghost

If you're seeing things
Running through your head
Who can you call?
Ghostbusters!

An invisible man
Sleepin' in your bed
Ow, who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!

I ain't 'fraid of no ghost
I ain't 'fraid of no ghost

Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!

If you're all alone
Pick up the phone
And call
Ghostbusters!

I ain't 'fraid of no ghost
Ooh, I hear it likes the girls
Hm, I ain't 'fraid of no ghost
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!

Mmm, if you've had a dose of a
Freaky ghost, baby
You better call
Ghostbusters!
Ow!

Lemme tell ya something
Bustin' makes me feel good!

I ain't 'fraid of no ghost
I ain't 'fraid of no ghost

Don't get caught alone oh, no

When it comes through your door
Unless you just a-want some more
I think you better call
Ghostbusters!

Ow! Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!
Who you gonna call?

Who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters!
Who can you call?
Ghostbusters!
