We sometimes toss the world "awesome" around like a beanbag at a Phish concert, but Giorgio Moroder is awesome. No argument. Nothing you can say to make it not true. As a car guy he helped pay for the Cizetta V-16T. As a composer and songwriter he influenced New Wave and helped write numerous important film scores and songs, including "Take My Breath Away" from Top Gun. He also put together a controversial (but great) version of the film Metropolis, which includes music from Pat Benatar, Adam Ant, and Freddie Mercury. Yes, that Freddie Mercury. The one the continually embarrassing Vanilla Ice ripped off. C'mon, if you're going to steal from someone make it less obvious or more entertaining a la IFTNFS.
