    Hello all, I'm new to the boards...sorta...I used to post here a while back, but I didn't post that much...I used to post on TFN back in the day when it was active under the name Maximus Prime, but that name was taken here, so seeing as how I am a TF fan as well as an anime fan(Naruto being one of my favorites), I chose Narutomus_Prime....

    Anyway, just thought I would introduce myself...and share something odd I found online...While looking for songs from ROTF on imeem.com I came across this...It's a new version of The Touch with the added title of Sam's Theme....I don't know if Stan Bush rerecorded this hoping it would end up on the ROTF soundtrack...I kinda like it but it's a departure from the Touch we all know and love...It's sounds more like SB got together with Linkin Park and did a remix of The Touch...especially that "rap" part in the beginning...

    Anyway, listen to it and give your thoughts....

    And if anyone can shed some light on where the hell this is from, let me know?

    Hello and welcome to the boards,

    This was discussed a couple of months back - SB made it in the hope of getting it onto the ROTF soundtrack. Thankfully the greater public were spared after it wasn't chosen, in favour of Linkin Park and more factory-produced emo.

    Ain't that the truth. It was like a really funny ass looking demon clown. It's horrible and you want to turn to run, but the laughter....the laughter paralyzes you.


    And the rapping...the bad rapping....I'd say, "Who knew Rick Hoffman could rap" for giggles...but it was just so baaaaad..

    So SB made it to try to get it on the ROTF soundtrack just like he tried to get that other song on the 2007 soundtrack? What is it with Paramount/Dreamworks and/or Michael Bay? They don't like his music or something? I guess they don't want to appeal to the fans or something...

    First, welcome back Narutomus_Prime!

    Second, the rapping on the song does not even compare in the "wth" category with Banana Ice's opening theme for Beast Wars in Japan!

    The problem is Stan Bush's best work was 80s music (which naturally doesn't work today unless it's for camp comedy value) and his attempt to modernise his work in a Linkin Park-esque manner comes of as a little desperate. I don't think the powers-at-be using their best judgement that an 80s power ballad and an emo remake of the same song not working for a modern audience equals them "not wanting to appeal to the fans".

    And on a personal level, it's really sad that he keeps trying to hold on to the success he had with a 23 year old kids movie. How desperate for work is he? It's like Jean Claude Van Damme wanting to make a sequel to his Street Fighter movie 15 years after the fact. Time to let it go, guys. Move on with your lives and find something new to do. Everyone else has.

    Or maybe it was never especially good and people only care about him because it was used in a specific cartoon movie in the mid-80s.

    We have a winner!

    Seriously, I hate "The Touch".

    *edit*

    Okay, just listened to the song. Not the most horrible thing I've ever heard and I kinda' like hearing it slowed down a bit. However, if they wanted Linkin Park to do a song for the movie, they'd get Linkin Park. . . which is exactly what they did.

    I think the only song from the original movie that still holds up today is the theme by Lion. I would love for that to be used in SOMETHING again.
