LOVE IS STRANGE
I was in the gym on May 29, 2012 and heard the new rap version - Pitbull's "Back In Time" remix heard here:
To hear this fantastic song again on the charts is amazing in 2012. Wikipedia notes the many versions, from Paul McCartney & Wings (Wings WILDLIFE lp) to Peaches & Herb and Bo Diddley.
Keep in mind that Bo Diddley co-wrote the song with Mickey Baker and Sylvia Robinson and that Bobby Hebb performed spoons on a Bo Diddley track, the flip of "Diddley Daddy"
LOVE IS STRANGE #1 R & B 1956
#11 on the top 40 1956
"Love is Strange" was a crossover hit by American rhythm and blues duet Mickey & Sylvia, which was released in late November 1956 by the Groove record label.
The song was based on a guitar riff by Jody Williams. The co-writers of the song are of some dispute. The song has also been recorded by Buddy Holly and Bo Diddley, among others.

MEN IN BLACK III Review
And just as Jonathan Frid died on Friday the 13th (April 2012) before he could see the picture, Sylvia Robinson would have probably adored hearing her masterpiece twice in this fun space-age delight. Rapper Pitbull (a.k.a. Armando Christian Pérez) updates the Mickey & Sylvia classic and the original finds its way into MIB III as well. With Andy Warhol playing one of the Men In Black the Factory as a setting for alien shenanigans makes perfect sense…and will help attract the mainstream and cult fans of both Jimi Hendrix and Lou Reed
