The film has stood the test of time and so has the music. To this day, no one can hear the words “Who ya gonna call?” and not immediately think “Ghostbusters!”, followed by the iconic theme from the late composer Elmer Bernstein.
In honor of its 35 years of greatness, Sony Music has announced that they will be doing a special reissue of the legendary music Bernstein composed, over 3 decades ago.
