Me and J once had a conversation about how when you were a kid, you knew lots about a movie (the story and lots of details), long before you got to see it. For both of us Star Wars was the most definite example of this. Weird, I guess kids just have a vivid imagination and easy to learn if they like something.
Anyhow, Ghostbuster was sort of like that for me, but not to the extent of Star Wars. I liked this track a lot when a got this seven inch. I must’ve seen the music video on the show Bagen (“the Bag”?) on Swedish Television. The track was written and performed by Ray Parker, Jr.
I used to have a “glow in the dark” Ghostbuster t-shirt. Come to think of it, I use to remember that t-shirt to just be gone one day. Well that’s not strange you say, you could have just left it somewhere by accident or maybe it just worn out and thrown away. Those are equally possible and it was almost certainly so. But, for me growing up, it was a mystery that a couple of things just seem to be gone one day: the Ghostbuster t-shirt, a toy at Björlanda Plantskola (don’t know how to translate this but a “plantskola” is a place where you buy plants etc for your garden) and a t-shirt with a tram on it from San Francisco. Oh how stupid.
