Legendary songwriter Ellie Greenwich has died from a heart attack in a New York hospital aged 68.

Greenwich is most famous for writing landmark hits like 'Be My Baby' and 'River Deep, Mountain High' with producer Phil Spector and her husband Jeff Barry. As a perrformer and producer, she helped Spector to realise his trademark "Wall Of Sound" production style with the likes of the Ronettes, the Crystals and Ike & Tina Turner.

Greenwich's songs are responsible for tens of millions of record sales, with 25 gold and platinum records to her name. In 1985, she helped create the play "Leader Of The Pack," which was partially based on her life in the industry.
