GHOSTBUSTERS DAY 2022: New documentary covers the career of Ray Parker Jnr and his hit Ghostbusters theme tune

June 8th, 2022 by Marc Comments

To mark the 38th anniversary of Ghostbusters – the greatest movie ever made, fact – and the big day known to fans as Ghostbusters Day, Sony has released a new documentary looking at one of the most iconic parts of the movie… the theme tune.

Yes, Who You Gonna Call  is a new documentary about the amazing career of musician Ray Parker Jnr and how it led to arguably the greatest theme song of all time, Ghostbusters, making ‘who you gonna call’ a part of the common vernacular that, almost 40 years later, is still as nig as it ever was.

Filmmaker Fran Strine explores the riveting true story of the man who wrote and recorded the global smash hit song “Ghostbusters,” which became a universally recognized pop culture classic.

Ray Parker Jr. granted Strine unprecedented access to reveal his never-before-told life story — from overcoming nearly impossible odds growing up on the segregated streets of Detroit in the 1960s to achieving his dream of getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and winning a GRAMMY. Who You Gonna Call? pulls back the curtain to reveal Parker’s now little-known yet legendary career, with Clive Davis and other music legends sharing what it was like to collaborate with Parker, both on stage and off.

Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
