Who you gonna call?

Major Leaguer's top five songs about ghosts

5. Walking With A Ghost - Tegan & Sara
4. Ghost Town - The Specials
3. Friendly Ghost - Eels
2. Your Ghost - Kristin Hersh & Michael Stipe
1. Ghostbusters - Ray Parker Jr.

Googling 'songs about ghosts' also gets you here, although there's nary a tune about spectres throughout. Instead, Songs About Ghosts is a nifty short story zine published in New York. I'm sure Ray Parker Jr would approve (apparently Ray is writing and recording again after a long hiatus - hooray!)
