Song writing

Recommended Posts

i DON T buy that a song, at least the melody part, can be written by two people.

Like Lennon and McCartney, I think they basically wrote songs alone and just got together to listen to each others stuff and perhaps suggest a few improvements etc.

I think most of the early Beatles songs, like she loves you I wannna hold your hand etc, were written by John,

He was the dynamo of the group.

It was nt until Sgt Pepper that power began to shift and Paul became the driving force.

The song river deep mountain high is a classic from 1965 and credited to

Phil Spector

Jeff Barry

Ellie Greenwich

I wonder who wrote that amazing melody

Certainly the lyrics are written from a female point of view.

Maybe the melody was written by Ellie,

Her biog says

Joining forces with legendary producer Phil Spector, a string of legendary hits were created, including: "Be My Baby," "Da Doo Ron Ron," "And Then He Kissed Me," "Chapel Of Love" and "River Deep, Mountain High." With Barry, this trend continued with number one smashes, such as "Hanky Panky," "Do Wah Diddy" and the epic "Leader Of The Pack,"

a lot of those songs are from the female point of view, I wonder if

Ellie wrote the melodies, wot atomic songs they are, wot a talent
