Transformers Theme Song

1984–1987

This primarily is for the original animated series, because truthfully, music from the motion picture(s) was kind of unorganized. For example, its soundtrack had a lot of songs that weren’t even in the film—typical big flick style, a la Spider Man—and did not give due credit to the film scorers.

Anyway, enough about that. Now it’s time to give credit where credit is due. The real Transformers theme song is as iconic as the animated series. It is where the phrase “more than meets the eye” came from—which was only referenced as an inside joke in the firs film.

The theme song, as well as music throughout the series, is mainly credited to two composers—Robert J. Walsh and the late Johnny Douglas.

As for how the song came to be, and who were the actual voices in the recording is still unarchived as of this moment. If you know information, please hit the comments below so we can make this post a full-blown resource.

Below is the short but legendary lyrics to the theme.
