, which is the entertainment destination from the team behind New York magazine, recently learned the history of Seibertron.com friend Stan Bush's Transformers hit 'The Touch'. Learn about the origins of the song inspired from the movie Iron Eagle
and which movie Stan had in mind while writing. Check out some excerpts below or you can read the entire article here
Vulture.com wrote:Listening to it, one might think, With lyrics like "it's in the mighty hands of steel," this must be a song written about Optimus Prime. But no. Bush says he had never even heard of the Transformers until after the song was already finished. Bush had written it with visions in his head of other iron bodies: Sylvester Stallone and Lou Gossett Jr.
Vulture.com wrote:"We wrote the song with the Stallone movie Cobra in mind," Bush said in his amiable southern drawl, picked up during his childhood in northern Florida. "We wanted to get it on the soundtrack. But the record label, they got it in the Transformers movie instead. We thought, What in the hell is that? An animated movie about robots? Really?"

I love the song but it would have been horrible in the movie "Cobra". Glad they used it for Transformers instead. But I am confused - I thought Stan Bush wrote the entire score for the Transformers Movie. Wouldn't he have to know about Transformers to do so?

Vince DiCola wrote the score; the instrumental music. Coincidentally, he received the commission due to his work on another Stallone movie, "Rocky III". The soundtrack songs were all unconnected to TFTM before the movie's release, except Lion doing the theme.
