Stan Bush Classic Finally on Guitar Hero: World Tour
I’m not ashamed to admit that the soundtrack for the REAL Transformers movie (not the crappy Bay films) was a key influence in my teen years so a few months back when the rumors that the theme song for the film – “The Touch” by studio musician Stan Bush was inbound for free it actually served as the straw that broke my back and convinced me that I needed to pick up the GH:WT band bundle.
Well the day has arrived and the song is now available on the download services along with the theme song to Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits. The GHOT:WH (gotta love acronyms!) theme is composed by members of the Vicarious Visions dev team and is free as well.. but it can’t hold a flame to Stan.
Fans of The Touch can also participate in an online torunament starting today at 4PM EDT and concluding at 8pm EDT Sunday, May 31. Prizes for the competition include autographed Stan Bush CDs including a new remastered version of the song. Now if only they would bring some of the other songs like “Instruments of Destruction”, “Dare”, “Hunger”, “Dare to be Stupid”or “The Transformers (Theme)” to GH as well… my Transformergasm would be complete!
Check out a music video for The Touch after the jump!
And the Boogie Nights version – that will make you really appreciate the original:
