Ronettes - Be My Baby

Phil Spector is in jail and today Ellie Greenwich died. This is an odd, sad time for all of us who are fans of big hair, big sounds and big girl groups. While many of Greenwich’s obits emphasized “Da Doo Ron Ron” “Leader of the Pack” and “Chapel of Love,” everyone (and by everyone I mean me) knows this is her finest moment.

  3. Husbandji ADORES the Ronettes! I'n not sure if he heard about this. Thanks for letting us know... :(
