Not too bad considering that I was 1964 and all of those songs came out before I began listening to music. Thank you Happy Days for "playing" these songs during the show and thereby getting me to hear songs that I would may not of heard while growing up in the 70s.

Darling, your memory of hit love songs is off the charts!. I struggled with one but reread the clue and only one of the possible answers rhymed, so I chose that one and it was the right one.
