He provided part of the soundtrack to my teen years.
Especially liked "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" and "Town Without Pity".
Didn't realize until I read the obit how many songs he wrote for other artists -- including "He's A Rebel" recorded by The Crystals which I'm still prone to break into upon occasion.
