Good Quiz---Mickey and Sylvia were popular in the 50's, not the 60's. Love Is Strange-1957.

Thank you. You are correct that their biggest hit was indeed in 1957, but they also had two less significant hit singles in the charts in 1960 (This is My Baby & What Would I Do) and another two in 1961 (Lovedrops & Baby You're So Fine).
