In the 1986 animated classic, Transformers: The Movie, guitarist and songwriter Stan Bush gave us the musical classics known as “Dare” and “The Touch“. Apparently, Bush also submitted tracks for director Michael Bay’s 2007 live-action Transformers film but was told by the filmmakers that they weren’t interested.
This time around, and in hopes of landing a spot on the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack, Bush has recorded an updated version of “The Touch”, dubbing it “Sam’s Theme” — obviously referring to Shia Lebouf’s character, Sam Witwicky. But that’s not all.
He’s also put together a music video as well to help sell the idea to Bay and company. On May 14th, this version hit YouTube and received, shall we say, a less than stellar reception from fans. Undeterred, Bush posted a re-edit 2 days later and included more footage from the the live-action Transformers films.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24th. Until then, check out this video featuring a guy you have to admire for not taking “no” for an answer.
