Here’s Stan Bush Rebooting His Iconic Transformers Anthem, ‘The Touch’

Fahey wasn’t too fond of the remixed “The Touch” that played during the credits for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron last year, the credits only offered an excerpt. Today, Stan Bush released the entire thing. Does the additional context make it better?

I’m kinda still with Fahey on this. Bush’s title track from the 1986 film is the definitive, un-self-conscious 1980s ballad, and this updated cut never achieves the shower-singing catharsis the original hit at multiple points.

Fahey thought “The Touch: Power Remix” was Bush’s revenge for being left off the soundtrack for the first live-action Michael Bay flick. While I’m not too fond of it, it still beats anything Linkin Park did.
