Ellie Greenwich, was one of the great songwriters of all time, penning hits like “Chapel of Love” and “Be My Baby.”  She died of a heart attack in New York City, where she was battling pneumonia.  Although her music was usually performed by others, particularly girl groups like the Ronettes, she did cut her own work in 1968, including “Sunshine After the Rain.”

And here’s a tribute to Ellie Greenwich by her friend Brian Gari.
