Lisa Burns writes: "You can almost take her for granted, her songs so ingrained in our psyches. For those of who lived and breathed the sixties they must be a part of our DNA by now. As i kid, i never thought about the songwriter, just the voice calling, breaking up, buzzing through my transistor radio pressed against my ear, or the grainy teen image emanating from black and white tv.

Oh, but what a string of song Ms Ellie left. A solid gold thread, like seams shaping our lives, loves, school daze/haze, teen angst. Continuing to weave, tangled up in flushed, blushed, rosy cheeks, spotted, oily, t zones and sallow complexions. Shallow? No. The songs of Ellie Greenwich were the sounds of the streets, subways, expressways, young hearts thumping bumping the night away. Her songs seeped through the cracks in sidewalks and became part of the air we breathed, and still breathe. They accompany us, penetrating and invigorating, the atmosphere."
