|“||Stan; opening lyrics from "The Touch"||”|
—You've got the touch. You've got the poweeer. YEAH!
Stan Bush is an American musician who performed the original songs "Dare" and "The Touch" for The Transformers: The Movie, and subsequently appeared in a music video for the latter song.
Years later, Bush was tapped to write and perform an original song for the Transformers fan convention, BotCon, which was called "Ground Zero".
He was a special guest at BotCon 1997, where he performed a live concert with fellow The Transformers: The Movie musical alumnus Vince DiCola for the attendees. An exclusive two-disk CD featuring songs by both Bush and DiCola was available at this same convention. Ten years later he was a guest at BotCon 2007, where he performed "'Til All Are One", which was based upon "Ground Zero".
The Transformers cartoon
- Actor: Himself
At an undetermined time period following the creation of the Headmasters and Targetmasters and the seeming defeat of Galvatron and Scorponok, Powermaster Optimus Prime spent a good deal of time relating Transformers stories to the human schoolboy Tommy Kennedy.
After a series of stories wherein he described the events of the battle with Unicron, Optimus Prime had to depart to attend an interstellar peace conference in the midst of a barrage of questions from Tommy. As he was blasting off, Prime declared "But until I return, I leave you with 'The Touch'!"
Following this, the music video for "The Touch" began, although how Tommy was able to view it in the barren wasteland where his meetings with Prime typically took place is unknown.
