Jack FM isn't the only famous Taurus celebrating a birthday this month, so is lyricist Bernie Taupin. Elton John and Taupin have often been called the Lennon and McCartney of the 70's. Even John admitted that without Taupin, there would be no Elton John. Here are some of Jack's favorite songs written by the lyricist. Most from Elton John, but one was written for Stevie Nicks and eventually recorded by Heart. Another he probably wishes he never wrote. Until he got the royalty check.
