What can I say? It's groovy! You can dance to this CD any way possible, you can narrow your eyes and concentrate on it, you can sing along with it, you can analyze it, it's like jello, there's always room for it.

This really is a great 80's album to listen to. My 2 favorite songs on this great CD are: GHOSTBUSTERS(Ray Parker Jr) & MAGIC(Mick Simey), All the other songs are great including: CLEANIN' UP THE TOWN(The Bus Boys), Except: I CAN WAIT FOREVER:(Air Supply}. But the Ghostbusters Theme is great for Halloween parties. This album is just as great as the movie. Oh, & the movie is just as great as the soundtrack.What ya gonna buy? GHOSTBUSTERS.

The 1984 smash hit "Ghostbusters" is the not the only good song on this LP. Tracks like "Magic" by Mick Smiley fuel the albums spooky feel by starting the song off kind of like "In the air Tonight" by Phil Collins then completely changing the tempo into the featured part of the song used in the film. The Thompson Twins totally rock also with their 80's hit "In the name of love". Other great songs include "Savin' the day" by Alessi and the R&B riffed out "Cleanin up the town" by the Bus Boys. The instrumental tracks are great additions also yet the album is missing a featured song in the film. For some reason, Arista Records neglected to put "Disco Inferno" on the album even though it was featured in the party scene at Lewis Tully's house in the film. Oh well, great album anyway :)

My kids argued over this CD on a long car trip. They both wanted to listen to it over and over! Still great music after all this time....

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.

I've been listening to this album since before I can remember. Ghostbusters was always my favorite on it. The Thompson Twins, Air Supply and many others make this album complete. It's a good example of what Classic Rock really is. Worth buying, if you're into 80's rock.

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.
