ASCAP congratulates the legendary lyricist Bernie Taupin on his Best Original Song Golden Globe, for “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again,” co-written with his longtime songwriting partner, Elton John. The upbeat anthem was the sole original song from Rocketman, the acclaimed biopic based on John’s life.

This is Taupin’s second Golden Globes victory. He shared a trophy with ASCAP composer Gustavo Santaolalla in 2006, for “A Love That Will Never Grow Old” from Brokeback Mountain.

Amazingly, this marks the very first time that Taupin and John have won an industry award together for their work, despite a 52-year partnership that has resulted in some of the all-time greatest songs in pop music history.
