Don't Watch: Stan Bush's 'The Touch' Transformers 2 Version
Those of you who are hardcore Transformers fans are more than familiar with the classic (dare I call it that?) Stan Bush song "The Touch" that is featured in The Transformers: The Movie from 1986. It was, uh, great at the time, or at least, it was hilariously awful and so cheesy that it could be an easy replacement for Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." Worst of all, for no good reason, Stan Bush is back and he has remade "The Touch" for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Please don't tell me this song is in the movie at all?! I can actually listen to the original 1986 "The Touch", but this remake, wow, this is just awful!
Thanks to our friends at SlashFilm for pointing this out. Or maybe, it wasn't good that they ever mentioned this. If you're curious, you can read the back story behind how and why Stan Bush decided to remake this right here. Though, because this new version sucks so much, do yourself a favor and go watch the original music video! Thankfully, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will arrive in theaters in just over a month from now, on June 24th. The good news is that Linkin Park has written a new song, which can be heard online already right here as well. Anyone else got the urge to watch The Transformers: The Movie now?
