I haven't been able to remember the name of a quartet that I believe enjoyed its brief popularity in the 70s. It was comprised of two men and two women, and they sang in an exaggerated 1940s style, dressing in the fashion of that era as well. No, I'm not confusing the group with The Pointer Sisters, although the two women in the quartet did dress similarly, with shoulder pads and all.
I realize that's not much to go on, but the key to the search is their exclusively 40s style and sound. I'm surprised I haven't already been successful Googling them myself.

You wouldn't happen to remember any of the songs they recorded? Pretty please!

Sorry, but I don't remember a single song.

Another group "comprised of two men and two women" would be "The Manhattan Transfer", existing "1969–1971, 1972–1973, 1973–present", i.e. according to Wikipedia:
Perhaps you will remember the name of the group in question when looking at this list of "vocal quartets"?

You're not thinking of the B-52's, are you?

It's The Manhattan Transfer. q21, make that your answer!
