The Vine, an Australian online magazine, has put Spirit, from Ghostbusters 2, as their ninth best soundtrack rap. And yes it is an excellent one. It’s like, proto-Horrorcore and if it were my vote, I’d put Doug E Fresh & The Get Fresh Crew higher than ninth. But I can’t complain too much, as they also put Bobby Brown’s On Our Own at number one – both of them far more satisfying raps than the theme-constrained track by Run DMC.
In an age where the soundtrack is out of print, but torrenting abounds, I’m curious how many younger fans have heard the track in their entirety, not just the bits included in the film. Well, there’s YouTube, so I guess it’s a non-issue.
Now that I look at it, that’s kind of a crap list, except for their wise inclusion of Ghostbusters 2… twice.
Like, where’s Colours? Nowhere! Booooooo!
