Proper post in an hour or so (one of the hyperpost series – I think this one’s the weak link in terms of my writing, but it’s an ‘I have to say this, so I can say this’ post) but I couldn’t let the death of Ellie Greenwich go without comment, so here’s a quick spotify playlist of some of her most famous and greatest songs. There’s a tracklisting below, but I don’t think any comment is necessary. You all know these songs.
River Deep, Mountain High – Ike & Tina Turner
Then I Kissed Her – The Beach Boys
Do Wah Diddy Diddy – Manfred Mann
I Can Hear Music – The Beach Boys
Be My Baby – The Ronettes
Baby I Love You – The Ramones
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Darlene Love
Hanky Panky – Tommy James & The Shondells
I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine – Ronnie Spector
I’ll Never Need More Than This – Ike & Tina Turner
Out In The Streets – Blondie
Truly one of the greats.
