What was the first ever, pop album I ever, and I mean EVER bought? Whatcha gonna say? GHOSTBUSTERS! The soundtrack, that is.
Ray Parker Jr.'s immortal rollicking fusion of rock and funk title track kicks off the soundtrack. As a bookend, the instrumental version of this song completes the album. Yes, it is worth having both versions.
The Bus Boys' rock-a-billy "Cleaning Up The Town" picks up the pace of a party in full swing. It's the most lively track on the album.
I never heard anything else by Alessi, but their "Saving The Day" is a mid-paced synthesizer number with backing horns. The Thompson Twins' bouncy post-modern new wave "In The Name Of Love," originally from their Into The Gap album, is present as well. With Steve Lillywhite producing this song, it's good to know he had more than just DMB on his producing credits.
Air Supply's "I Can Wait Forever" a Chicago or REO Speedwagon-type ballad, is simply wonderful. The first time I heard them I wondered about the vocalist's gender. I found out later, of course. He kind of reminded me of Dennis DeYoung of Styx.
Laura Branigan's "Hot Night" is actually different from the synthesizer pop she usually performed. It's a rocking club number complete with driving electric guitar. Her best song ever!
Mick Smiley's "Magic" predominates with a synth-drum reminiscent of Phil Collin's "In The Air Tonight" and some rock guitar used in the chorus. This song is played when the city begins to be riddled with spooks in the movie, with ectoplasmic ghosts trails floating towards the sky; the portion used is the monologue spoken over the moody uptempo drums and eerie synthesizer, conveyed to denote the ghosts taking over.

This soundtrack is awesome! Not only does it contain all tracks from the movie, but also something else: The nice orchestra theme in the movie [the stairs scene] that really isn't produced by any artist, is also included. This, technically, makes this album a soundtrack, and the score of the movie Ghostbusters. This in return makes for an excellent purchace. This soundtrack should be owned by all ghostbusters fans alike, and should be dwelled by for eons, and eons. The fact that the second movie, was a total failure, both in the humour department, and the story department is one thing. But that the soundtrack of the second movie was a total disaster, is something that can not be forgiven, when the first movie was a total god, in comparison. K, I'm not going to talk further.. If the publishers of the DVD Ghostbusters, know anything at all, they'll include the soundtrack on the DVD. If you like the movie, and hummed along to the music, this product has really gone way beyond: Many products are made to make more money. This product deserves the money, and with todays doses of greed I don't say that often. Get it, now!

This cool collection of mid '80's rock-pop tunes still rule even to this day, I feel. Admittedly, I have gotten tired of Ray Parker's movie theme song, but I still really like the sound of the Bus Boys' (Who?) "Cleanin' Up The Town" and Alessi's (Again, who?) "Savin' The Day", most likely being the only things these groups are know for. The Thompson Twins get down and funky with "In The Name Of Love", then I also like Mick Smiley's soothing, ghostly "Magic", then finally the Instrumental "Main Title Theme", you know, it goes "Da Do Do Dunk Dunk, Da Do Do Dunk Dunk" and further on than that. It was usually played during Bill Murray's scenes. Of course, Dana had her own theme too, but I don't care for it nearly as much. Anyway, I do indeed recommend this soundtrack highly, so, until next time, I'll soon review the second movie's CD, watch out for those pesky, sneaky Slimers!

Alas, few things in this world are perfect. How depressing it is when something comes so close.
While the soundtrack is excellent, especially with two versions of Ray Parker Jr.'s title track, and very complete with the pop music dotting the movie (even some particularly obscure entries) -- enjoy Air Supply and the Thompson Twins in particular -- the score's the thing, and since there is no score CD for this movie it's particularly sad that Elmer Bernstein's entire score didn't make it on here. While the best, and most memorable, themes made it (the Ghostbusters and Dana themes), they are mere shadows of their greatness on the screen. Disappointing!
Nevertheless, this is your chance to own an almost-perfect soundtrack of one of the best movies of the 1980's. I can honestly say that there's no better companion CD to this classic.

I bought this CD last year and i tell you, it hasn't been out of my CD player since. The songs are so catchy, especially 'Cleanin' Up the Town' by the Bus Boys and 'In the Name of Love' by the Thompson Twins. And we can't forget the original and best 'Ghostbusters' by Ray Parker Jr. There are so many things right with this Cd, that I can only find one possible complaint which is that there are only ten tracks. But don't let this put you off buying as the CD lasts for about forty minutes. I mean it, this is a fabulous CD which belongs in your CD at home and believe me, if you ain't afriad of no ghosts then you shouldn't be without this!
