goodbye ellie.

rest in peace ms ellie greenwich. we are a little slow posting for various reasons, forgive me. someone on facebook was kvetching that not enough people were upset about her passing, but I doubt that is the case — though she probably was not as well known as the people who sang her hits. I can hear music, all right. ever since I got into girl groups in high school, I was digging ellie g music whether I knew it or not. I do a mean karaoke of “be my baby” and “leader of the pack.” dump does a mean cover of “I can hear music.” she was the tops. here is the guardian obit, the new york times obit and a hefty interview from girl group chronicler sheila at cha cha charming. we’ll miss you, eg.
