    Out of all the songs that have ever been associated with Transformers, what is your favorite? For me, beyond a shadow of a doubt it is Dare. That song and that scene where Hot Rod races to Lookout Mountain to see the shuttle is on of the things that I always loved about the movie and had always kept me in it. For the longest time I wanted to have that song in my music collection, but it wasn't until 13 years later AFTER the movie came out that I was able to find it. I found the movie sountrack on CD in 1999 at my local mall, completely to my surprise. (G1 had been out of the limelite for quite a long time at that point so like most movies I would have thought it would be out of print. Glad it wasn't though! :D  )

    The thing I love about it so much is that it's so inspiring, so motivating, and Stan Bush performs it to perfection. To my ears it's catchy and it just sounds cool. Plus you can't beat the lyrics if you're looking for some motivation. For me Dare will always be one of my favorite songs.

    What about you guys and girls?

    I love the whole original movie music.

    I like different bits. I especially love the Vince Di Cola music.

    The Touch! It frames Optimus Prime's epic "final" Battle and Rodimus Prime's ascension and then in part 2 of The Return optimus prime , Optimus triumphant return, even if a bit late. Stan Bush is da man!

    This would probably be my 2nd favorite. I also like the season 3 theme alot.

    Instruments of Destruction, Nothin's gonna stand in our way, The Touch... there are so many great songs. I love Vince DiCola's score's too.

    I have recently grown to appreciate this song as well, I think it was for sure one of the more interesting songs on that soundtrack and really actually rocked, like hard rocked.

    I will always have a spot in my heart for Dare and The Touch, but I have also been trying to explore the rest of that album in far more detail.

    Good call on You Can Fight- I like that one, as well.

    I really liked the Galaxy Force theme, as well (Was it Call You or something like that?)-

    Fav is probably Dare.

    Dare to be Stupid off the '86 movie. As I hate 80's hair rock, it's one of the only good songs from that movie.

    Tie between "Escape" and "Instruments of Destruction". Escape is amazing BUT ONLY THE DEMO!!!! The record version isn't as epic and lacks the supreme energy of the demo. Instruments is a good song an fun to play on guitar. Hunger is good but Kick Axe's version is crap compared to the superior band King Korba's version off Ready to Strike!!!

    I don't care for The Touch at all, but I do love Dare. My favorites on the G1 movie soundtrack are Dare, Nothing's Gonna Stand in Our Way, and Lion's Transformers Theme.

    For a more modern take on the TF theme, I love Black Lab's version much more than either of the two that ended up on the movie soundtracks. Bought their album with that song on it.

    For the Bay movies: I like New Divide and love the NEST theme that came from it. I adore the "Arrival to Earth" score from the first movie and the scores of both movies. And I enjoy the hell out of The Used's Pretty Handsome Awkward - it's my favorite song on the first TF soundtrack.
