Beneath the masks was the unique Ghostbuster, Ray Parker, Jr., whose theme music for the traditional ‘80s comedy-horror logged three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Sizzling 100 and gained a Grammy Award (for greatest pop instrumental efficiency).
“What an honor to have you ever on the present, man,” commented choose Robin Thicke.
