Cha Cha Charming
I am still in shock over the fact that the gifted songwriter Ellie Greenwich has passed away. Ellie Greenwich co-wrote many of my all-time favourite songs. Ellie Greenwich perfectly captured the crush feeling in song. The first time I heard the Ronettes sing Be My Baby i thought someone had read my diary and eloquently put it to music. Actually, the very first time i heard that song i was a little kid and thought boys were icky.....but you know what i mean.
Ellie was not only a songwriter, she was also a great singer. Clickity click to hear Ellie (under the name Ellie Gaye) singing Cha Cha Charming!!!!!
Here is a clip of the amazing Tina Turner doing an electrifying performance of the Ellie Greenwich/Jeff Berry/Phil Spector penned song "River Deep Mountain High".
