The New York Times and record stores around the globe announced today that Sylvia Robinson died at 75 years old in N.J.
You know who she is, even if you don't think that you do.
"Oh Sylvia!?" "Yes, Mickey !" "How do you call your lover boy?"
"Love Is Strange." The number one song written in 1959 and sung as a duet with Mickey Baker, was made immortal by Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze in the 1987 film, 'Dirty Dancing." This song is sweet, elegant, and uniquely romantic, with its swanky guitar licks, constant step rhythms and mid-bridge conversation. It is truly unmatched.
