"Ordinary Love" was crowned Best Original Song at the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.

U2 and Danger Mouse's recording for "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" beat out Coldplay's "Atlas" for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez's "Let It Go" from "Frozen," Ed Rush, George Cromarty, T Bone Burnett, Justin Timberlake, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen's "Please Mr. Kennedy" from "Inside Llewyn Davis," and Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff's "Sweeter Than Fiction" from "One Chance."

"Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" was up for a total of three awards, also receiving nominations for Best Actor - Drama for Idris Elba and Best Original Score for Alex Heffes. This is U2's first Golden Globe win. The band was previously nominated for "The Hands That Built America," a recording for 2002's "Gangs of New York."

Last year, Adele took home her first Golden Globe at the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards, winning Best Original Song for her recording of "Skyfall" from the James Bond movie of the same name. She beat out "For You" from "Act of Valor," "Not Running Anymore" from "Stand Up Guys," "Safe & Sound" from "The Hunger Games," and "Suddenly" from "Les Misérables."

Other past winners in the category include "The Shadow of Your Smile," "Strangers in the Night," "(I've Had) The Time of My Life," and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight."
