the touch

Stan Bush‘s 1986 song “The Touch” was featured in the soundtrack for Transformers: The Movie, and later became a cult hit among Transformers fans and 80’s pop culture fanatics. The song was also later covered by Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights. Bush has recorded a new version of the song, retitled “The Touch: Sam’s Theme”, for the upcoming release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Although, it’s not clear if the track is featured in the film itself.

You can listen to the new version embedded after the jump.¬† I’ve also included the original cheesy 1980’s music video, which I much prefer (at least that version is so bad its good…).

Also, Linkin Park have released a teaser for their new song, “New Divide”, which is not only a track on the film’s soundtrack, but also part of the movie’s score. That video is also included after the jump.
