Who ya gonna call?

Ghost busters!

This is a fun song and a great movie, even if it is kind of silly.

What it reminds me of is taking my girls to the skating rink every Saturday morning. They took skating lessons for awhile, and this song played a lot over the loudspeakers. I heard it before I ever saw the movie.

“Ghostbusters Theme Song”, by Ray Parker, Jr., is from the movie, “Ghostbusters”, and is on the album, “Ghostbusters: Original Soundtrack Album”. It was released in 1983, and is on the Arista label. It was written by Ray Parker, Jr.

Well, anyway…I had to put that song on here because it’s the first thing I thought of for the prompt word, ‘call’.

My grand-daughter loves anything creepy and strange, and Halloween things, and loves to hunt for ghosts, too. Except this week she was all into Christmas and singing me songs, like the Partridge in a Pear Tree, with the 4 calling birds!

I’ve had several jobs of calling people on the phone…yes, the dreaded and hated telemarketers. I was one. Actually, those jobs were the most fun I’ve ever had at working. I had my share of cranky people, rude comments, and hang ups, but still, I liked it. And I really normally hate talking on the phone. My friends would call me and we’d talk and I’d enjoy it, but I was never one to initiate a call. Even now, it’s rare, except to call a business to see what time they open/close. Anything else, I get all flustered and can’t say it right, what I’m trying to get across. Probably the telemarketing job was easy, because we had a script we had to say every time, and then we could ad lib a bit. Also, the other employees were a fun bunch of people to work with, along with the employers of these many jobs I had.

Well, enough about this for now…

I’ll wish y’all a happy Saturday, with calls or no calls, ghosts or no ghosts…however you like it. 🙂

CHRISTMAS WRITING PROMPT # 9 – FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG

CHRISTMAS WRITING PROMPT # 9 – FAVORITE CHRISTMAS SONG

Our Random View’s Christmas writing prompt, part 9…….What is your favorite Christmas song?

***

I love most all Christmas songs/carols whether they are the more religious hymn type, or the just for fun type.

The one I like the most though, is a very upbeat song. For me, I have to hear it in a random way, before it will seem like it’s actually Christmas time. I have to hear it without planning on hearing it at the time, like from a store’s music that’s playing, or just happen to turn on the radio, and they play it. It has to be randomly heard. Sometimes I hear it really early in the season, and sometimes pretty late, and that worries me that I might not hear it at all that year. I’ve already heard it for this year. Yay! …and yes, I do have to sing along! 🙂  Anyway, the song is “Feliz Navidad”, by Jose Feliciano. 🙂
