It’s no secret that Screen Junkies loves Michael Bay, and to celebrate the release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, we’re calling this week BAYWATCH.  Every day for the next five days, there will be a new feature dedicated to Michael Bay, the man, the myth, the pyromaniac. 

Kicking off the week is a look back at Bay’s earlier work. Before the Boom (and Bad Boys)… there was the music.  Michael Bay made his reputation on making music artists look really frickin’ cool based on the aesthetic standards of the day.  Bay’s work was dramatic.  It was gorgeous.  And it single-handedly supported Hollywood’s "lens mist filter" and silk drapery industries for years.

Here are our favorites, in chronological order.


Richard Marx’s "Angelia" (1989)


Gregg Allman – "I’ll Be Holdin’ On" From Black Rain (1989)


The Divinyls – "I Touch Myself" (1991)


Tina Turner – "Love Thing" (1992)


Lionel Richie – "Do It to Me" (1992)


Wilson Phillips – "You Won’t See Me Cry" (1992)


Meat Loaf – "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)" (1993)



Meat Loaf – "Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through" (1994)


Meat Loaf – "Objects in a Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are" (1994)


Aerosmith – "Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees)" (1997)


Faith Hill – "There You’ll Be" (1997)
