Yesterday, when I blogged about Rihanna’s new song “Sledgehammer” I originally had planned to write about something completely different. Coincidentally, also a song recorded for a movie. It’s a very interesting cover of the “Ghostbusters” theme song by Fall Out Boy featuring Missy Elliot.
Fall Out Boy is not one of those bands to often get a spot on my playlist, even though I absolutely love the powerful “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)”. Their rework of “Ghostbusters” deserves a mention though.
The original song was recorded in the 80s by Ray Parker Jr. With its heavy synth-pop sound with horns and some electric guitars, it sounds outdated compared to today’s music.
