Billy Joel’s 1976 hit Say Goodbye to Hollywood was inspired by Ronnie Spector. Ronnie herself covered it in 1977 backed by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Ronnie recorded her first solo album in 1980 produced by Genya Raven, which was a prelude to her work with Joey Ramone in the late 1990s.

This is a great song fully orchestrated, with ronnie´s great voice, wonderful production and everything to be a great hit, how could it miss the charts? That´s a mystery.-
