A founding member of the ARChive’s Board of Advisors died today. With sadness we report the death of songwriter Ellie Greenwich. Pretty much a recluse for many years now, her great music lives on through classic songs like “And Then He Kissed Me,” “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Chapel of Love,” “River Deep, Mountain High” and “Be My Baby.” She also sang some perfectly silly ones like “Niki Hoeky.” Her version of this is rockin’. Do Wah Diddy, she will be missed.
