Biography

An experienced pop tunesmith and manufacturer, New York-native Ritchie Cordell is most known for his composing/creation credits on the slew of mid-60s pop strikes such as for example Tommy Adam & the Shondells “I BELIEVE We’re Alone Today” and “Mony Mony.” If light by modern standards, those music were positively large compared to the bubblegum pop Cordell continued to produce within the Kasenetz-Katz creation team. Within a teeny bop motion that rivaled the past due-90s Backstreet Children trend, Cordell helped gasoline the burning fireplace of early-70s teenage hearts when he penned “Indian Giver” for the 1910 Fruitgum Co. and “Gimme Gimme Great Lovin'” for Crazy Elephant. Though he spent most the ’70s from the market, Cordell returned having a restored vigor in the first ’80s, creating Joan Jett’s wildly effective I Love Rock and roll N’Roll album, in addition to attempts by Bow Wow Wow as well as the Ramones. In 1987 he distributed the rare differentiation (previously done just from the Beatles) of experiencing one No. 1 strike succeed another when Tiffany’s edition of “I BELIEVE We’re Alone Right now” was changed by Billy Idol’s “Mony Mony.” Hey, it ain’t “ALLOW IT Become” and “Hey Jude,” but he’ll consider it. Cordell passed on in NY in Apr of 2004. He was 61.
