Stan Bush on TF2 OST?

03.18.2009

Stan Bush's song 'The Touch' was integral to what was literally the greatest film scene of my childhood. It played when Optimus Prime took the fight upon himself in the animated TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE. Now, twenty or so years later, Stan Bush hopes his song will make a comeback in TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN. The song - which you should also remember Mark Wahlberg covering in BOOGIE NIGHTS - has been rerecorded by Bush, who has submitted it for the film. According to sources, all of whom are Stan Bush, the new version is "killer".

Maybe it's because when I was a kid I saw TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE more than I saw my parents, but I love the song. I love "Dare" too. It's no exaggeration to say that Stan Bush is living in his own little world, and that he has pretty much lived off of 'The Touch' for two decades, but I don't see why people are dumping on the song. It is f*cking epic.

Relive the magic:

Extra Tidbit: Bush also submitted two songs for the TRANSFORMERS soundtrack, but neither were used.

TF:The Movie Soundtrack

I actually found it on CD about a year ago... I instantly get a flashback to when a friend loaned me the cassette in high school. "Listen to this, it rocks," he said, and I obviously chuckled at first. The theme song still blows me away for it being so ballsy (albeit cheesy) 80's metal for a kid flick. That and "Instruments of Destruction."

It would make a cool snuff.

What if Shia turned on the radio and it was on? Then made a disgusted face and quickly turned the channel. LOL.

I've heard the new version...

...and it's pretty much exactly the same as the old version. Which would be awesome to have in the film, but somehow I can't see it happening. Stan Bush also recorded another Transformers theme, whose name escapes me...

EDIT: Just remembered, it's called 'Till All Are One', and it's quite epic in its 80s rock silliness...

Dare!!!

This takes me way back, it would be so cool if this made it into TF2, just as a nod for the fans.

I was not going to see the TF2 movie, but if this song was in it, i would reconsider greatly...

In hindsight the song is pretty terrible but. . . I still get goosebumps every time that song, and Dare, come on in that movie.
