Customer Reviews

This CD will get a lot of playing time in my car stereo!
Michael
The Thompson Twins totally rock also with their 80's hit "In the name of love".
Sean Mackey
That leaves 5 songs (exactly half the album) as good to great.

Because I am capable of discerning between variations of the product, I feel that I must provide a more structured review for those interested in it. This is the Varese Saraband Limited Edition release, of which only 3000 copies were made, and which now fetch around $100 per copy. The release contains only the orchestral score composed by Elmer Bernstein, which was originally written to score the entire film, before it was decided by the studio to use pop music. As a result, there are segments of music present here that are not heard in the film, as they were either truncated for time constraints, or replaced altogether. Nevertheless, this is an incredible soundtrack, and most certainly representative of Bernstein's finest work. His use of the hypnotizing sounds of the ondes Martenot is at it's most quintessential here; used to great effect to evoke a sense of mystery and foreboding. The score feels at times to be in the process of a lengthy crescendo, building to the climax atop Gozer's temple and the inevitable "crossing of the streams"; it's haunting sounds provide an unsettling but completely fitting framework for the action and hilarity one sees onscreen. All in all, an excellent work, and worthy of one's time in listening to, if not one's money.

This is probably best score from the later years of the great Elmer Bernstein. It is a shame it was only released in a limited edition of 3000 units which have now sold out - hence the high price. Great for the scalper trying to make a buck but not so good for the average soundtrack collector.

To measure the contribution of Mr. Bernstein and his score to the success of this film, try popping in Ghostbusters 2 and feel the emptiness without him...

1984's paranormal comedy about a team of scientist-turned-Ghostbusters who come to the rescue when New York City begins to be riddled with ghosts has a fairly fitting soundtrack album to go along with it. Featuring a few one hit wonders, pop ballads, new wave songs, pop/rockers, and s couple pieces of the score, it's a fitting Halloween album.

1. Ray Parker Jr.'s infamous title track can be heard in the opening credits. Starting with a creepy, Halloween-esque sound, it soons turns into an uptempo pop/rock/funk hybrid. Its fun sound and "Who ya gonna call?" catchphrase (rightfully) turned it into a huge hit. Though many claimed it closely resembles Huey Lewis' "I Want A New Drug" (maybe a little too close - which led to a lawsuit), I don't hear the connection myself.

2. "Cleanin' Up the Town" Bus Boys -- The only other hit to emerge from the soundtrack is basically the 'Buster's theme song. With its upbeat drums, piano and guitar solo, I'd liken its semi rowdy sound to a more R&B version of the J. Geils' hit "Centerfold."

3. "Savin' the Day" Alessi -- I wouldn't call this one of the stronger songs on the album, but it does fit the storyline. With its mid tempo, horn-laden sound, it's almost like how Chicago would sound (musically) if they did New Wave.

4. "In the Name of Love" Thompson Twins -- Another heavily new wave influenced song sounding like it came out a couple years too late (this style was already fading out by 1984). It's very uptempo and silly sounding - almost the polar opposite of the same year's semi ballad "Hold Me Now" and it can be heard as the guys are eating dinner, just before they get called to the Sedgewick Hotel.

This soundtrack is amoung the best in my book. The movie ruled and to top it off they come out with a blockbuster soundtrack. The ghostbuster's theme by Ray Parker Jr., is such an iresistable song, and the rest are cool too. So if you don't like this soundtrack, you don't like music.

This Movie was just the greatest that was ever made in the 1980's and this soundtrack was part of what made that to be true. With such songs a Ray Parker Jr.'s GHOSTBUSTERS and Saving the Day it is by far one of the greatest movie soundtracks ever if this was a tape or record it would be worn out from the many times I have listened to it.

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.
