/ Living in the 70s / Society & Culture / History / Breaking up is hard to do


Yes, listeners, this week Marty and Venetia explore the heartbreak, the outrage, and the bitterness of breaking up by playing a selection of exquisite seventies you-done-me-wrong songs. Writing a song is the perfect way to get in that snappy comeback you only thought of after the event. Or perhaps to beg for your loved one not to leave. Or to  let the world know all the ways your ex totally sucks. You can do it all in verse, create a hit, and have the perfect revenge. At the very least, you get the final word.
