This Japanese Ghostbusters theme song is so much better than the Fall Out Boy one


japanese ghostbusters theme song

Last week I shared the new Ghostbusters theme song. That was by Fall Out Boy and featured Missy Elliot. It was a total mess of a song. If you really want to, you can listen to it here.

As there is not much love for the new film it seemed like an odd way to go. However, this Japanese version of the theme song is a lot more like it. It sticks closer to the Ray Parker Jr original and is full of neon lights.

It was put together by four Japanese comedians — Tomochika, Oniyakko Tsubaki, Naomi Watanabe, and Shizuyo Yamasaki

As the new Ghostbusters team is comprised of four US comedians then this Japanese version fits the whole set up of the new film as well. I say they whack this version on the beginning of the new film.

I wish they had gone with the original idea of Ghostbusters being just another job, with franchises all around the world. Then they could have set it in the original Ghostbusters timeline. They could have opened with snippets of Ghostbusters working all around the world until we reach the team for the new film. That way you could have had a different team every film and set it anywhere.

Instead we are getting a reboot that nobody actually seems to want.

The new film is directed by Paul Feig stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth, from a screenplay written by Feig & Kate Dippold, based on the film Ghostbusters, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis and directed by Ivan Reitman.

They are joined by Michael K. Williams, Andy Garcia, Neil Casey, Cecily Strong (SNL), and Matt Walsh (Veep).

Ghostbusters is out on 11th July 2016.
