Flashback Video Of The Week
Thirty years ago, Ray J Parker’s “Ghostbusters” topped the charts.
1984 was a good year in music. You had Van Halen’s “Jump”, Prince’s “When Doves Cry”, Kenny Loggins’ “Footloose” and many more.
For three weeks in that summer of 1984, Ray J Parker topped the charts and found himself in trouble with Huey Lewis, who said the riff he used for this song to closely resembled his riff for “I Want A New Drug,” released earlier that year. Maybe Huey was bitter that he didn’t get to write the smash the was the ‘Ghostbusters’ theme. Not to mention, Huey Lewis had almost every song on his album featured in ‘Back To The Future’…so let Ray J have this one.
