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.

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.
