Giorgio Moroder — His many film scores include three Academy Award winners. The first came for his score to the powerful film Midnight Express. Next recognized was Irene Cara’s inspirational hit, “Flashdance,” from the film of the same title. And then the highly romantic song, “Take My Breath Away” from the film, Top Gun, brought his third Academy Award. Not surprisingly, compositions by Giorgio have also contributed to numerous other hit films such as The Never Ending Story, American Gigolo, Cat People, Superman III, Scarface, Rambo III, and Beverly Hills Cop II. And his music has attracted many other awards including four Golden Globes, two People’s Choice Awards, and more than 100 Golden and Platinum discs. In February 1998, he received his third Grammy for the song “Carry On”, performed by Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder.
