Right now, Paul Feig is creating an all-new GHOSTBUSTERS movie - one with Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon (all pictured up-top) strapping on the Proton Packs for a new adventure that Sony Pictures will release on July 15, 2016. While the new Ghostbusters certainly have my attention, I come from the generation that grew up on the original (which I saw in the theater back in 1984) and will forever hold completely dear. Ray Parker Jr.'s iconic theme song still gets regular play here, and The Rock Daughters™ can even pick my original vinyl 45 out of a stack. Carrying on that legacy, I've featured a number of cover versions of the GHOSTBUSTERS theme over the years (Hoobastank, Melo-M), and this year another finds its way into my annual 31 Days of Halloween here at THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine. From ODDS & ENDS, the new album by ANDREW & POLLY, comes a very different take on this famous song. Check out ANDREW & POLLY performing "Ghostbusters," below...

This is probably the first time this has ever happened - a past entry into 31 Days of Halloween returning three years later in a different form. Back in 2012, I featured "Bah Humbug Halloween" by Chicago's POOCHAMUNGAS here on the site, but what it didn't have then, it has now - a music video. In this tale inspired by Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL, Ebenezer Scrooge is found living in Chicago, bringing his grumpiness the the #1 Holiday of the year (aside from Xmas, of course). Can the ghosts right his wrongs for this one, too?

After being a destination for the purchase of great family music for years, Amazon has officially entered into the Kindie realm with exclusive new albums from THE POP UPS and LISA LOEB. GREAT PRETENDERS CLUB is the fourth album from Brooklyn Duo, THE POP UPS, while NURSERY RHYME PARADE! is the fourth children's album from singer/songwriter LISA LOEB. Both albums are available for unlimited ad-free streaming to Amazon Prime Members right now, while physical and MP3 versions are also available for order and pre-order, respectively.

Here's a New Song by ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS...

Written by

When ALVIN and THE CHIPMUNKS LIVE ON STAGE hits the road this Fall, families will get to hear 18 songs performed as part of the touring show. Tonight, the first original song has been released, and it's one that poses a very simple question just in title alone: "Are You Ready For Chipmunks?" Have a listen...

The buzz today has been that RYAN ADAMS has not only completed his full-album cover of TAYLOR SWIFT's 1989 - but that Digital pre-orders for it are now live (Amazon | iTunes), and that the release will be available on Monday, September 21st. If you want a hard copy, Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the CD, which Blue Note will release on November 20th... but RYAN ADAMS isn't the only one with a full-album cover of 1989 in the pipeline. On October 9th, the crew at Roma Music Group will release their LULLABY VERSION OF 1989 as part of their massive Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection of lullabies. Normally, I'd show you the cover art and tracklisting for the album, but since it's 1989, I'm just gonna defer to Taylor on this one...

If you're prepping to raise a little "wiseguy" (or "wisegirl" or "wiseperson" if we're being P.C.), the crew over at Roma Music Group has the perfect soundtrack for the baby's nursery with the release of LULLABY VERSIONS OF MOB SOUNDTRACK HITS. One of the latest entries into their massive Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star collection of lullabies, MOB HITS is an eight-song EP that leans on THE GODFATHER and GOODFELLAS, with a dash of MOONSTRUCK and THE SOPRANOS thrown in. Fun fact: Addie has, in the past, told people that "Daddy is a Rock and Roll Gangster" - something I explained in this post from 2013. Check out the tracklisting for the LULLABY VERSIONS OF MOB SOUNDTRACK HITS below, along with a stream from THE GODFATHER...
