Ellie Greenwich, 60s songwriter supreme, is dead — at 68

She died of a heart attack yesterday.

Working with collaborators such as her ex-husband Jeff Barry and producer Phil Spector, she created classics such as "Be My Baby," "Da Doo Ron Ron,"

"Chapel of Love," "Leader of the Pack"

and "River Deep, Mountain High" —

to name only a few of her monster hits.

She was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1991.

Kick back, turn up the volume, and before you know it it's "Shindig" in your cubicle.

How do you spell "Time Machine?"
