/ Living in the 70s / Society & Culture / History / This rock is soft


This week Marty and Venetia are in the mood for a some adult contemporary entertainment (and no, that’s not nearly as saucy as it sounds). Sometimes we like our music easy, not too challenging, a little lush, catchy, and perfect for relaxing to.  That’s exactly what you get with soft rock. Some of these classic tracks from the 1970s are still played regularly on ‘easy listening’ radio stations. We try not to overindulge – just like a fluffy sponge cake, too much is sickly – but a little now and then does you good.
