The Surprising Writer of “Weatherman”, Theme Song for the Movie "Groundhog Day"



When you remember the classic 1993 movie Groundhog Day, you might not immediately think of the music as one of its standout features, but it does have one special claim to cinematic fame. It's home to the only soundtrack theme penned by the gifted comedy writer and director Harold Ramis. The Ghostbusters and Stripes star clearly didn't have a wealth of songs to choose from about the trials and tribulations of a TV weatherman, so he wrote one himself. It's a playful and cheerful number, performed by blues artist Delbert McClinton and plays over the opening and end credits of the movie. They say if you’re a good writer, you can write anything, and Harold Ramis certainly proved that.
