Love Bill Murray? Of course you do!
We're going out on a limb here, but we think you may also love Eclectic Method's new tribute mash-up, which consists of loads of iconic Murray moments all squished together into one Bill-tastic song. (Thanks to our friends at The Huffington Post for alerting us to this.)
So why did the renowned DJs/remix artists choose to honour Mr Murray in this way? Well, here they are to explain: "Bill is a walking, talking memecon — an iconic meme. From SNL to Ghostbusters to Wes Anderson flicks, Murray has, more than just about anyone, had several ages of awesome."
(By the way, Eclectic Method are British - but you'd never think it from that quote, would you? You wouldn't catch anyone round these parts saying "several ages of awesome".)
Anyway, we digress... Do watch the video. Then watch this...
"This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather." From meeting Ned Ryerson to being slapped by Andie MacDowell, enjoy the best bits of weatherman Phil Connor's day-on-repeat.
Witty Ghostbuster Peter Venkman is possibly Murray's greatest on-screen creation - and while there are a wealth of classic Venkman moments to choose from, we just had to go for "Cats and dogs living together..."
'Bill Murray is back among the ghosts - only this time, it's three against one.' So ran the tagline for this '80s reworking of Charles Dickens' <em>A Christmas Carol</em>, now a seasonal favourite for just about everyone between the ages of 25 and 45.
Lost In Translation
We'd like to tell you what we think of <em>Lost In Translation</em> - but that would involve us whispering in your ear and everyone else wondering what we said. So instead, we give you... "Suntory time!"
Quite possibly the finest film about golf - though we realise there are very few contenders - <em>Caddyshack</em> was Harold '<em>Ghostbusters</em>/<em>Groundhog Day</em>' Ramis's first feature film. In it, Bill Murray plays greenskeeper Carl Spackler - who spends most of the movie trying to kill a gopher.
Hugely overlooked, the 1990 comedy <em>Quick Change</em> marked Murray's first - and so far only - foray into directing. And as this opening sequence shows: you can dress Bill Murry up as a clown - but he's still unmistakably, wonderfully, always Bill Murray.
Like the rest of the cast of this comedy classic, Bill Murray is note perfect as Dustin Hoffman's flatmate/confidante/pretentious fellow actor, Jeff. Check out this scene in which Jeff holds forth at a party - <a href="http://youtu.be/smTXkhM6v-Y" target="_hplink">and this one for his unforgettable "nutty hospital" one-liner</a>.
<em>Rushmore</em> didn't just bring Wes Anderson to everyone's attention - it also marked Bill Murray's move into 'serious' acting (albeit with a comedic twist. Always.) Here's one of our favourite moments, in which he takes to a diving board... with a cigarette and drink in hand. Of course.
Little Shop Of Horrors
A scene from the musical-turned-movie which doesn't just feature Bill Murray as a masochistic patient - but also Steve Martin as a sadistic dentist! Boom!
It's Bill Murray! Bowling in a wig! In a Farrelly brothers movie! Sorry - was I talking out loud?
