(Bruce Springsteen accepts the GRAMMY for Song Of The Year at the 37th GRAMMY Awards on March 1, 1995, in Los Angeles.)
Thanks, a few notes. I'd like to thank all those disparaged and mysterious GRAMMY voters out there who are, wherever you are, whoever you are; Jonathan Demme, Jon Landau, my partner and my good friend; Mickey Schulhof, Tommy Mottola, Donnie Ienner, and everybody over at Sony Records. It's been my artistic home for 22 years and very, very good to me.
(Audience member yells)
This is embarrassing enough, alright? Family: Patti, Ev, Jess, Sam, my mom, who's here tonight. Top of the world, ma! My dad at home. Love you, dad. My fans whose passion and support has given great meaning to the work I've done. And the folks who have come up to me in restaurants and on the street, who have lost their sons or their lovers or their friends to AIDS and said that this song meant something to them, thank you very much.
