Elton John and Bernie Taupin Recieve Songwriters Highest Honor

Elton John and Bernie Taupin are already members of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, but apparently the Hall feels they deserve more, so they’ve now been given the organization’s highest award.

The Johnny Mercer Award is given to a songwriter or songwriting team already in the hall of fame, but whose songs are of such high quality and impact that they uphold the legacy of Mercer, who wrote “Moon River,” “Hooray for Hollywood” and many others.

Songwriters Hall Of Fame Chairman Jimmy Webb describes the John-Taupin collaborations this way, “Elton’s readily identifiable melodic piano style has proven to be a perfect accompaniment to Bernie’s razor sharp lyrics about relationships and living on the edge of life both in good and bad times.”

Elton John and Bernie Taupin will receive their honor at the 44th annual Songwriters Hall of Fame induction in June.
