Diane Lampert, acclaimed songwriter of the 1950s and 1960s has died, according to a Feb. 23 Associated Press report. Lampert, who was an accomplished songwriter for title songs to over 20 Hollywood movies, died of heart failure on Friday at a hospital in New York, according to her husband Fred Stuart.
Her lyrics set the stage for some of Hollywood’s most memorable movies starring legendary actors including Bob Hope, Cary Grant and Buster Keaton, among many others. Among her greatest works was the opportunity to work with the Beatles. She wrote one of the iconic band’s songs, “Nothin Shakin’ (But The Leaves on the Trees).” The song was not released until 1994 on “Live At The BBC.”
The legendary songwriter is survived by her beloved husband of 45 years, Fred Stuart. Also part of the music business, he is president of Rainbow Music Corp.
Lampert was 88 years old. A memorial service is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. Wednesday at Riverside Memorial Chapel, according to the Associated Press.
