NEW YORK (AP) - Diane Charlotte Lampert, an accomplished songwriter of the 1950s and 1960s who wrote lyrics to title songs for more than 20 movies, has died.

Lampert's husband, Fred Stuart, said she died of heart failure Friday at a Manhattan hospital. She was 88.

Lampert worked on songs performed by Brenda Lee, Steve Lawrence, Red Foley, The Lettermen and others. She also was a writer on a Beatles song, "Nothin Shakin' (But The Leaves On The Trees)" that wasn't released until 1994 on "Live At The BBC."

Lampert helped provide music for movies starring Bob Hope, Cary Grant, Buster Keaton and others.

She is survived by Stuart, president of Rainbow Music Corp., her husband of 45 years.

A memorial service is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. Wednesday at Riverside Memorial Chapel.
