Now, let's take a look back at all the songs that won Best Original Songs from 1962 till 2017!

The track “City of Stars" from the Ryan Gosling-and Emma Stone-starring film won Best Original Song at the Globes ceremony on Sunday night. The track features music penned by composer Justin Hurwitz and lyrics by Dear Evan Hansen duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. It’s first heard in the film sung by Gosling’s character, Sebastian, and then again later as a duet between him and Stone’s character, Mia.

“I always start at the piano before I orchestrate anything,” Hurwitz previously told EW of working on La La Land’s memorable music. “I’m always just working at the piano trying to find the melodies, and that can be a very, very long process. I spent about two years composing the music before we even shot the movie. I did a little over 1,900 piano demos, just trying to find themes that we think are going to stick in people’s minds.”

Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song was awarded for the first time in 1962 and has been awarded annually since 1965 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The award is presented to the songwriters of a song written specifically for a motion picture. The performers of the song are not credited, unless they also have a writing or co-writing credit.
