    The TF Facebook page posted this bit of news.

    Rovio’s latest game, Angry Birds Transformers, boasts one killer soundtrack. You may notice that the tunes in the game sound similar to those from Transformers: The Movie. That’s no coincidence! Rovio teamed up with Vince DiCola, who composed the music from the 1986 animated feature, and music industry vet Kenny Meriedeth, who infused the tracks with the tasty analog synth sounds that defined the '80s! Give it a listen for yourself! http://bit.ly/tfspt1014

    Samples available here on Spotify:

    Certainly has that nice "retro 80s" feel to the music, and you can really hear the 86 TFTM in there.

    I can't believe they got Vince DiCola onboard for Angry Birds Transformers. That's pretty cool.

    I agree.
    While nice to see Vince finally back involved with an official (somewhat) TF product, why did it have to be Angry Fools?
