What could possibly be more fun than watching Carl Davis conduct an orchestral version of the Ghostbusters theme with audience participation? NOTHING.

Elmer Bernstein may have written the incidental orchestral music for the 1984 comedy blockbusters Ghostbusters, but it was Ray Parker Jr who provided the iconic theme song.

But now, you can hear it turned into a fun-as-being-slimed-in-the-face orchestral extravaganza, thanks to Carl Davis and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, in this performance from 2011:
