Ghostbusters

a-hard-days-night-john-7Peter Venkman – The ultimate New York hero: cynical, sarcastic, secretly sweet-natured.*

a-hard-days-night-paul-4Winston Zeddemore – Acts as an ‘everyman’ and voice of reason for the team.*

ahdn_george_01Egon Spengler – The most serious member. A sugar junkie.*

a-hard-days-night-ringo-2Ray Stantz – Characterized by his almost childlike enthusiasm towards his work. The heart of the Ghostbusters.*

*Descriptions taken from Wiki.

I laughed my head off! (Although it’s implied that John is the oldest, which as we know is untrue.)

Purely by their vocal qualities, and NOT a judgement on their varying values: 

John– Iron

Paul– Gold

George– Copper 

Ringo– Bronze

Thanks Silly Girl for resurrecting my thread (I was “Funny Paper”)!  There were so many good ones, but the ones that fascinate me most are the offbeat ones, like Zig’s computer keys, or AhhhGirl’s playing cards.  Now your metals I never would have thought of.  I like every one except Paul — he seems more like silver to me, somehow.

Here’s another one for me:

Days of the Week:

John: Saturday

Paul: Monday

George: Friday

Ringo: Thursday

(Don’t ask me why; these just felt right, somehow…)

Well, I was thinking along the line of people describing a person as having a ‘golden voice’, but on reflection I do believe I like silver better, considering you wouldn’t call George ‘copper-voiced’, now would you? a-hard-days-night-john-6 

Actually, I might… a-hard-days-night-paul-4
