Info about song

The Touch was released as a double A-side single with "Weird Al" Yankovic's Dare to Be Stupid, another song from the soundtrack album of the Transformers movie. The power ballad was also released in 1987 on Stan Bush & Barrage's self-titled album. The song was inspired by a line in the movie Iron Eagle, and originally written for the Sylvester Stallone film Cobra. Its inclusion on the Transformers soundtrack was Bush's first exposure to the franchise. The Touch was also featured in The Transformers animated series 1987 episode ‘The Return of Optimus Prime, Part 2’, when the newly resurrected Optimus Prime unleashed the power of the Autobot Matrix of Leadership to vanquish the Hate Plague. The song is briefly used in the 2018 film Bumblebee in a scene where the title character plays it to encourage Charlie, serving as an in-joke for viewers familiar with the song's history in the franchise. In 1997, Bush re-recorded the song and Dare (another song from The Transformers: The Movie) for the BotCon exclusive soundtrack CD Til All Are One. Bush submitted a different re-recorded version of the song from his album In This Life for the 2007 live action Transformers film, but it was not included on the final soundtrack. He later recorded another version, subtitled "Sam's Theme", for possible inclusion in the 2009 sequel Revenge of the Fallen. The 2009 version differs markedly from the original and 2007 versions, adding rap verses and being more melancholic in tone, with it being described as a "redux a la Linkin Park".In 2010, Bush released a music video for "The Touch: Sam's Theme" on his YouTube channel, featuring clips from the first two Transformers films. The song was edited with the rap verses removed, and was included in the 2010 album Dream the Dream. The 2009 versions were poorly received. The 2007 version of The Touch was released as a free downloadable track for the video game Guitar Hero World Tour on May 28, 2009. Bush had expressed interest in wanting the song to appear in the game or in competing music game Rock Band. On October 12, 2010, the song was released as a downloadable track for Rock Band through the Rock Band Network. On September 15, 2012, Bush released another remix of the song as The Touch (Power Mix) on iTunes. The "Power Mix" is a variation of "Sam's Theme" with a new chorus arrangement. Also included in the single is "The Touch (Epic Guitar Mix)", which, like the 1997 and 2007 versions, is a re-recording of the original song.
