Right. Most (if not all) of the artists whose songs were used in the non-Vince DiCola parts were chosen because they were on the label the soundtrack was going to be release on, Scotti Brothers.

God, if they did that I think I'd take up terrorism. It'd be the thing that flipped my switch.

I hope the sountrack is comprised solely of songs from "Merry Christmas with the Smurfs". And maybe a weird harmonica instrmental composed by Beck.

Well, I only said "in tune with his character" ... not that they'd actually do it or that it would be a good call on their part if they did.

Actually, they could have fun with the soundtrack if Perceptor, Jazz and Blaster are all in the show. I could see Perceptor tuning into classical music for its beautiful and complex harmonics and the latter (gleefuly) changing the station over to R&B or hard rock whenever they were in the room.

Of course, I'm evil. But you probably guessed that already.

They'll definately have a music loving TF in the film- Probably Jazz (either that or they'll make Ironhide a funky beat lover just to make fanboys scream)- Just to get as much of the "Official soundtrack" in the film as they can.

Not necessarily. It happened on Alien vs. Predator also. Of course the environment was less populated.
 

I do not agree that the original Transformers cartoon is bad, but I do agree that my opinion is probably biased.

I actually don't like signatures.

Default Composer Steve Jablonsky

A composer named Steve Jablonsky did the music to The Transformers (2007) movie Trailer (commercial). It looks like he may be doing the score to the film. It is orchestral with synth and ambient sounds. You can read the article here:

Most films have reasonable enough sound tracks. Heavy metal music would certainly not be appropriate, and neither would 80s hair music.

I'd like to see a Blade/Fast & Furious style mix, personally.

But maybe that's just me.

How so? Certainly appropriate for any action scenes you'd find in a war flick.

here's my 2 cents on the subject

1. no rap, it just doesn't fit the overall feel. Besides I'm still angry about the drej they put on the kill bill soundtrack.

2. it will need about 1/3 orchastra accompanient, minimum. Many scenes do better with such accompaniment.
My choice for this is somebody like john williams, only cheaper.

3. Hard Rock and metal should be another 3rd to a quarter of the music. Of these, they should have Rage against the Machine to do an original song. Both for the band's name and overall quality. Another song, if they can get the rights to it, is iron man by black sabbath. Other songs that would be great are big gun by acdc (aka megatron's theme), More human then human by Rob zombie, and Twisted Sister - We're Not Gonna Take It.

4. I also want some old school military marching music on the sound track. It helps put it into perspective that these mechanical life forms are soldiers, first and formost. I would turn to Hell's march from command and conquer as an example of what I sorta want for it.

5. I would also put in a couple of retro - 80's songs for the lighter parts and less violent parts. some ideas are Martika - Toy Soldiers, Nena/99 Luftballons (as a touch of irony), Bon Jovi - Livin' On a Prayer and something from David Bowie and/or Cory Hart.

6. If they must include songs from the original movie, only two qualify. Stan Bushes' you got the touch , and N.R.G.'s Instruments of destruction.

7. An idea I'm kicking is if Wierd al do an original piece for the movie. I loved his narratives of both star wars espiode 1 (better then the movie itself) and spiderman. If he did something similar, they could put it in the credits.

8. And lastly but not least, put the original transformer theme in the credits. It will be good for nostalgia sake. If they can't get the rights for it straight, do a variation.

It's not too much to ask that it would be all-instrumental, many soundtracks are.
There really won't be any consensus about what band should or shouldn't be on the soundtrack. The logical thing to do is to get as far away from human as possible- all-electronic music ranging from ambient to breakbeat and industial, even noise.
Aphex-twin-like stuff would work great as accompanyment to a battle or an intense scene. The Vince Decola music wasn't terribly far off from the ideal, it was the right idea.
The music should sound clean, precise, a lot of rhythmic complexity to evoke binary intricity, driving at times at a pace only a machine can produce. I do like the idea of the marching snares evoking battle- anyone familiar with a modern drum corps drumline? I can imagine a dash of that element either in sound or rhythmic ideas.
Also, it would be great if some of the brilliant music from the cartoons could be incorporated, even if only subtly. A good composer could do a lot with the Autbot and Decepticon themes, and maybe even use some of the original battle music (though it may not translate to the big screen.)
I'm not getting my hopes up on the rhythms; most modern soundtracks clone the same swelling strings formula and don't take chances. However I will get my hopes up that Nickelback or some other rediculous band won't be making an appearance. Heck, I'll get my hopes up that the soundtrack will be all instrumental- and that the look of the movie will live up to the beautiful gels and the unrevealing preview.

Which was sort of his parody of DEVO. (Sorry, but I can't be bothered to post on-topic. )

Just so long as they DON'T let the same people who did Jimmy Neutron's theme song ... with their whiney rock redux ... arrange the score.

Actually, ANY form of whiney rock would be just cause for a lynching.

Although it came from a game, the Transformers Armada game's soundtrack worked pretty nice. A bigger version of something similar could work well.

CJ ... please understand, when I was a kid I was regaled every night by the dubvious mix of Duran-Duran from the east (my sister's room) and the Chipmunk's Christmas Album from the north (my brother's room).

Any wonder I have an adversion to whiney rock and feel like killing something when I hear singing rodents?

Ruru- You're so lucky my mother doesn't post here, she'd rip you limb from limb for insulting Duran Duran Duran.

I'm not insulting Duran Duran ... just explaining why I run for the hills ...

Imagine ...

"The reflex" "me, I want" "is a" "hula hoop" "lonely" "Christmas day" "child" "can hardly wait" "waiting in the" "Santa don't be late"

Don't condemn me till you've suffered like me.

EDIT: A "wall of sound" it might've been ... but Spectre would have been horrified.

I should understand that by the numbers AOR like "Dare" or "The Touch" isn't 'whiney rock', but, say, "The Chaffuer" or, well, to be honest, just about anything else Duran recorded as they were more of a dance/glam/funk band (they're Young Americans + Scary Monsters, basically) than outright rock?

You make no sense. Start making sense ASAP k pls thanx.

As I've said elsewhere many times before (I swear blind there were topics on the soundtrack for this film before there were topics wondering who'd be in it), I see no reason for it to have a soundtrack as opposed to a score at all. Get Kraftwerk to do it, they like/are robots.
