Soundtrack Of Your Life #12: Transformers The Movie

Beyond good podcasting. Beyond evil podcasting. Beyond your mildest expectations..

Each episode, Corey Pierce welcomes a guest (or guests) onto the show who has chosen a compilation or soundtrack that speaks to a memorable era of their life. The soundtrack will play underneath and serves as a springboard to discussion about the music itself, how it works within the film, and what was going on with their life at the time of its release.

For episode 12, once again Corey welcomes 2 guests. Greg Aikenhead has been a close friend for over 15 years dating back to Sheridan College’s Illustration program and is the foremost robot and yogurt expert in Corey’s wedding party. Also welcome Shaun Hatton, a well known media personality in Toronto who currently runs Nerd Noise Night, and relevant to this episode is Rumble in Tranfromers-based band The Cybertronic Spree. We bring them together to geek out to 1986’s Transformers The Movie, the animated film bridging season 2 and 3 of the still wildly popular franchise. This hard rock and synth-score heavy soundtrack opens up various discussions surrounding nostalgia and toy marketing via childhood trauma.

That is a damn good pick even though I came to that film really late.


“You’ve got the Touch….da..da…You’ve got the POWER!!!” -> I hope Magnolia Boogie Nights comes up in this conversation.

Sean Kelly

Don’t you mean Boogie Nights?

Kurt Halfyard

Dang. INDEED I DO! Walbergh and Reilly’s crazy 1980s Jam Session, which struck me in a weird way once I recoginzed that they were singing the themesong of the 1980s Transformers cartoon!

I believe I had a Sharkticon toy as a kid.


While the Spawn episode is coming soon, I recently guested on The Matinee to discuss Ex Machina.


Now I want a “Danny Galvatron”. Great panel.
