Groundhog Day song of choice - Weatherman written by Harold Ramis

When you remember the classic 90s 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, as home to the only soundtrack theme penned by the gifted comedy writer and director Harold Ramis.

Ghostbusters and Stripes star Harold 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 Delbert McClinton and plays over the opening and end credits. Get into the Groundhog Day mood by giving the tune a play in the video box.

Here are the lyrics:

Weatherman (1993)

"Predictions show a steady low,
You're feeling just the same.

But seasons come and seasons go.
I'll make you smile again.

If you don't believe take me by the hand,
Can't you feel you're warming up, yeah, I'm your weatherman.

Cold wind's blowing, slowly driving everyone insane.
Hard rain's falling, pitter-patter down your window pane.

If precipitation's spoiling all your plans,
Just call information up, ask for the weatherman.

Ask for the weatherman.
They say it's gone, say winter's done
That don't mean a thing.

'Cause I'm the one, that moves the sun
For you I'd turn it into spring
So when you're feeling lonely, try to understand,
Baby, I can warm you up 'cause I'm your weatherman.

(Just ask the weatherman)
(Just ask the weatherman)
'Cause I'm you're weatherman.
(Just ask the weatherman)
Baby!
(Just ask the weatherman)
Try to understand
(Just ask the weatherman)

So when you're feeling lonely, try to understand,
Baby, I can warm you up 'cause I'm your weatherman.

(Just ask the weatherman)
When it's cold outside.
(Just ask the weatherman)
Call your weatherman
Cold outside
(Just ask the weatherman)
I can warm you up
(Just ask the weatherman)
I can do it baby
(Just ask the weatherman)
When it's nine below zero
I can warm you up."
