Legendary '60s Songwriter Ellie Greenwich Dies : NPR: "One of the great songwriters of the modern era, Ellie Greenwich, died Wednesday in New York City. Greenwich, 68, was a rarity: a woman in the music business who found tremendous success writing and producing hit after popular hit.
Along with Phil Spector and her then-husband Jeff Barry, Greenwich created songs like 'Chapel of Love,' 'Da Do Ron Ron' and 'River Deep - Mountain High.'"
Truly one of the greats.
