"Walking with a Ghost" is a song by Tegan and Sara, from their 2004 album So Jealous mostly written by Sara Quin, although credited to both band members, which was released as a single in 2005. The song appears on the soundtrack for the 2005 movie Monster-in-Law and was also used in the season 3 promo for Medium.

"Walking with a Ghost" was also the subject of a popular mashup when Party Ben combined Tegan and Sara's version with Mylo's track "Paris Four Hundred". Renamed "Walking with a Ghost in Paris", the track was so successful that the label considered releasing it officially.


The song earned an iTunes "Discovery Download" spotlight.[1]
