April 7th – G
When I started this challenge, I knew the letter G was going to be a cinch. This was the first song that popped into my head!
I wasn’t alive yet when the first movie was released (1984), and I wasn’t old enough to see the sequel in theaters (1989). However, I do remember seeing episodes of the two animated series in re-runs/syndication, The Real Ghostbusters (1986-1991) and Extreme Ghostbusters (1997). But, it remains one of my favorite franchises of all time.
Al and I went to see the reboot in theaters in 2016. I really liked it – Girl power!
I’ve also been lucky enough to have visited the Ghostbusters firehouse in New York City. Yes, it really exists! I don’t have my own photo to share, but it’s Firehouse, Hook & Ladder Company 8. It opened in 1903! It’s currently undergoing an extensive two-year renovation, which started in 2016.
I knew it was really close to where my Great-Aunt Sherri lives, but I didn’t realize they were only a block and a half apart when I entered the addresses into Google Maps.
I’ve enjoyed cosplaying as a Ghostbuster, too.
Recently, I visited the 2nd and Charles store with Al, near my office. This store has all things books, movies, music, and games. They also sell a lot of other memorabilia and gifts, such as Funko Pops, journals, art supplies, and more.
So, when I saw this Ghostbusters Micro Figure Set, I had to have it!
Okay, enough about my love of Ghostbusters.
Here’s the music!
- Ghostbusters – Ray Parker, Jr.
- Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid) – Fall Out Boy ft. Missy Elliott
- Ghostbusters – Pentatonix
- Ghostbusters – Run D.M.C.
What are your favorite songs/music/bands that start with G?
Let me know in the comments – I’d love to hear about it!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
