Our jolly friends over at Slashfilm (and TFW2005) have uncovered something that, if left uncovered, might result in a firestorm of bad karma for our site — it is a look at the remix of Stan Bush‘s cult classic song “The Touch,” which was originally featured on the soundtrack for the 1986 animated film Transformers: The Movie. It has been given a modern upgrade or two and will now be called “The Touch: Sam’s Theme” (it always has to be about Sam, doesn’t it).
You can check out the new song via the embed below, along with the original video. I’ve also included — because it is yet another thing that I missed last week — the MySpace first look at Linkin Park in the studio, working on their new song “New Divide,” which will also be featured on the soundtrack for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters on June 24, 2009.
