Director Paul Feig has pulled out all the stops when it comes to updating the iconic theme song of the Ghostbusters franchise. Fall Out Boy along with the talented Missy Elliot took on this update, which feels more like a tribute, using much of the original song and lyrics. Missy Elliot has proven she can make anything better (Remember the Superbowl Half Time show?), and she does it here. Give it a listen a couple of times before you run gather your pitchfork and torches.
We ain’t afraid of no ghost. Get “Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)(from the “Ghostbusters” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)” ft. Missy Elliott instantly when you pre-order the ‘Ghostbusters’ soundtrack on June 23rd (out July 15th) on iTunes, Amazon, also available on Google Play.
Well, what did you think? There’s enough of the original in there, along with Missy Elliot’s bit that should sooth the savage beast that is an original Ghostbusters hard-core fan, but you know how things on the Internet go. One thing this has going for it, at least the powers that be didn’t try to have the actors sing it or some other quirky gimmick.
Let the kabitzing begin!
