"You Got the Touch" - Stan Bush

Album: Stan Bush & Barage (1987)
Video Game: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron G1 Retro DLC pack (2012)

The existence alone of Activision's Transformers: Fall of Cybertron was enough to make 80s babies cry in a nostalgic fit, but when they released the commercial for Gamestop's exclusive G1 Retro DLC pack--where they re-created the classic scene where the Autobot leader approached his final fight with Megatron--was just too much to bear. Using the game engine itself, Optimus transformed into the the iconic red and blue truck with Stan Bush's "You Got The Touch" wailed in the background. Optimus gunned down the gang of Decepticons and turned the tide of the great assault on Autobot City. A collective "shut up and take my money" could be heard throughout the galaxy.

Every fan of "You Got the Touch" knows very well that you cannot listen to it without singing along. Here are the lyrics to help out with that.

You got the touch, you got the power

After all is said and done, you've never walked
You've never run, you're a winner
You got the moves, you know the streets
Break the rules, take the heat, you're nobody's fool

You're at your best when when the goin' gets rough
You've been put to the test but it's never enough

You got the touch, you got the power
When all hell's breakin' loose
You'll be riding the eye of the storm

You got the heart, you got the motion
You know that when things get too tough
You got the touch

You never bend, you never break, you seem to know
Just what it takes, you're a fighter, it's in the blood
It's in the will, it's in the mighty hands of steel
When you're standin' your ground

And you never get hit when your back's to the wall
Gonna fight to the end and you're takin' it all

You got the touch, you got the power
When all hell's breakin' loose
You'll be riding the eye of the storm

You got the heart, you got the motion
You know that when things get too tough
You got the touch

You're fightin' fire with fire, you know you got the touch
You're at your best when when the road gets rough
You've been put to the test, but it's never enough

You got the touch, you got the power
You got the touch, you got the power
