Spook Rock: On Our Own (1989)

For "Ghostbusters 2", they needed a soundtrack hit that had the same kind of pop culture appeal as Ray Parker Jr.'s "Ghostbusters" in the first film. However, "On Our Own" was more of a vanity showcase for Bobby Brown, who was all over the joint. One of the movie's co-stars, Rick Moranis, appears early on, but other than that, the guest stars are rather sparse, most notably, Christopher Reeve, Jane Curtin, and Donald Trump.

Brown was a hot commodity in those days, as he was coming off a hot album, "Don't Be Cruel", which produced a handful of top ten hits, including the title track.
