What a surprise. I didn't, I didn't think...there were so many great songs this year, and this I really like. I would like to thank the director, Tony Scott; the producers, Jerry Bruckheimer, Don Simpson. And Tom would like to thank...
I'd like to thank everyone at Paramount, the artists Terri Nunn and Berlin, my friend Giorgio Moroder, and Happy Goday. Thank you all.
Thank you very much.
