I've tried everywhere to find the Transformers 1986 soundtrack and can't find it anywhere. I've even tried 'sourcing' it from various places but to no avail. Shame really, as It's a classic soundtrack.

I'm not too sure about this but on the soundtrack to Boogie Nights there's a track called The Big Top (theme from boogie nights), and the chorus is exactly the same as Transformers' You got the touch, you got the power, which one was the original??

edit: nevermind a quick search on imdb answered all :oops:
The song "The Touch," performed by Dirk Diggler, is originally from the film The Transformers: The Movie (1986)

By Stan Bush, funnily enough.

I've got the Transformers soundtrack on tape (not a copy), first album I ever bought along with "Into The Dragon" by Bomb The Bass.

I used to have it on vinyl! But it about 21 years ago! Gutted!

One of my favourite movie soundtracks is the "Akira" anime movie soundtrack.

Some really awesome japenese vocal harmonies mixed in with some brilliant synth! Love it!

I only really like movie soundtracks that are done with an orchestra. It's a sad sign of the times when it has a pop music soundtrack.
Herman Stein and Bernard Herrmann are good, they used a full orchestra and in the case of Herrmann's music on Hitchcock films, the film edit was set around the soundtrack.
There's a raft of obscure stuff from Russia and the Eastern Blok in the 60's and 70's that's really good and mad. I find myself listening to this stuff over 'albums', they're just 'better', layered and more exciting. Probably a sign I'm growing old.

I managed to get the Transformers soundtrack, and its fricking awesome! Brings back memories of being (very) young again!

Some of my fav's that I own:-
Lost Boys

"Holiday Road" by Lyndsey Buckingham (National Lampoons vacation) I've had the video of it on youtube for ages and it still gets comments on a daily basis.

"The future's so bright I gotta wear shades" by Timbuk3 (loads of 80's films)
"Don't you forget about me" by Simple Minds (Breakfast Club)
"Drive my car" by the Breakfast Club (License to drive)
"I'm gonna be somebody" by Jack Mack & the Heart Attack (Police Academy).....took me years to get that one!
"Restless Heart" by John Parr (Running Man)
"Pretty in Pink" by psychedelic furs from...... well that's obvious

oh I could go on and on......
Hi I'm Retromax you may remember me from such songs as "Hantarex Two Five Zero" and "Hantarex Two Five Zero" the remix:)

Some good shouts there, I must say. Special mention must go to Restless Heart by John Parr. I tried for months to get that song. I did manage to get it, but now I've lost it again.
Oh, well!

I Love the Blade Runner OST - Vangelis.
Pretty much any OST that Tangarine Dream perform.
Many Italian 70's horror flicks (inluding George Romero's Dawn of the Dead) were scored by a group called Goblin...bloody brilliant.

Agreed. The Keep is quite an outstanding soundtrack. The movie is pretty good also.

The HEAVY METAL soundtrack. It's not bad, but it could have been a lot better, considering the movie was great.
