The original Ghostbusters was a 1984 American supernatural horror comedy filmdirected and produced by Ivan Reitman and written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. The film stars Bill Murray, Aykroyd, and Ramis as three eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City. Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis co-star as a client and her neighbor, and Ernie Hudson as the Ghostbusters' first recruit.

The film's theme song, "Ghostbusters", written and performed by Ray Parker, Jr., sparked the catchphrases "Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!" and "I ain't afraid of no ghost." The song was a huge hit, staying at number one for three weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and for two weeks on the Black Singles chart, and brought Parker an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. According to Bruce A. Austin (in 1989), the theme "purportedly added $20 million to the box office take of the film".[39]

The film launched the Ghostbusters media franchise, which includes a 1989 sequelGhostbusters II; two animated television series, The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters; and several video games
It has been rebooted with an all female cast as Ghostbusters 2016.
the music has been arranged for brass quintet: I have given the melody to the tenor2 and alto1 , with tenor1 interjecting "Ghostbusters!"
The bass line is shared between tenor 2 and baritone, in order to give the players some where to breath!.
Enjoy.
