Bill Murray was being his Murray-est at SXSW last week, just further living up the legendary awesomeness that we’ve all come to know and love. Yes, the former Ghostbuster was checking out a bunch of bands and taking selfies with a few lucky peeps.
Bill’s relationship with music is a long, well-documented one. Whether as a fan or a performer, he’s never been shy about showing his love for any and all musical genres. Here are a few of Bill’s best musical moments. This man deserves an honorary Grammy for just being Bill Murray.
8. Bill Murray & Eric Clapton at Crossroads 2007
In this clip, Murray takes the stage and plays “the only song he knows on guitar.” That Clapton guy helps out, but really it’s Bill who’s the rock star here.
7. Clint Eastwood and Bill Murray Make Beautiful Music Together
Clint should spend more time on stage with Bill and less with empty chairs. We can’t remember the last time Clint was this cool.
6. Bill Serenades Wrigley Stadium
If there’s one reason to go to a Cubs game, it’s the hopes that Bill ends up singing to the crowd. In fact, let the team have the day off and let Bill keep singing his weird little heart out.
5. Bill Conducts a Marching Band
Band geeks, rejoice! Murray just made being in a marching band sound a lot more awesome. In fact, he’s such a fan of marching bands that he conducted one not once, but twice. Feel free to use this info to get laid, nerds.
4. Bill “Elvis” Murray
Bill Murray in an Elvis costume. Need we say more?
3. Bill Murray Karaoke
Bill’s a bit of a karaoke aficionado. (Remember Lost in Translation?) Here’s a couple clips of the master working his musical mojo.
2. I Will Always Love You, Bill
We will always love Bill’s penchant for insane entrances, but this one takes the cake. Not only is he dressed like Liberace, but he starts singing Whitney Houston. And while none of it makes any kind of sense, it’s still amazing.
1. The Love Theme from Jaws
As great as any Bill Murray musical moment is, none of them come close to the original flavor: Nick The Lounge Singer. We still wish Murray would cut an album as Nick singing random lyrics to made-up covers of legendary movie scores.
