I recently listened to the RUN DMC Theme for Ghostbusters 2 on Spotify and noticed that the song sounded very off. I then went to youtube to listen to the proper version and realized that the hook w/ the original ghostbusters theme that plays over most of the track has been completely removed. The song sounds completely different without it and you can hear some of the other backtracks that were normally obscured by the GB theme. Has anyone else noticed this?

Interesting. It appears the version on the compilation RUN DMC "High Profile: The Original Rhymes" is this version. On Spotify, it plays this version even if you are playing the GB2 soundtrack.

At first I thought it might've been some weird rights issue but the music is still present in other sections ("we ain't 'fraid of no ghost"), so I think it's just alternate mix either done on purpose or included by mistake on the Run DMC compilation. Things like this happen a lot.

FWIW, Google Play Music appears to have both versions.

It's so weird because not long ago, they had the proper version available under the same track. I know because the original version that I favorited now plays this version of the song.

Prior to all this, for the longest time, the GB2 soundtrack had everyone on the original CD minus the run DMC theme. I think this was because none of Run DMC's library was available on Spotify. That has obviously changed since then.

Either way, I really don't like this mix of the song. I prefer the original.

I just got the RUN DMC 12" single, and this version is the dub version. The 6:00 single version is basically the same, too. Not a fan, personally.

If you're interested, the single version of Doug E. Fresh's Spirit sounds nothing like the soundtrack album version as well.

I have a German 7" single of Run DMC's theme on the way, so i'll be interested in seeing what version is on there.

I love having alternate tracks available. Just wish they would put the original back up there too. I wonder if they would even give a crap if I tried to contact them.
