Oh My Darling Who Wants To Be Free?

Valentine’s Day is approaching. In 1977 The Slits turned the punk boys club upside down a little and lyrically turned listeners upside down a lot. Love and Romance is about male possession of women and how relationships can lead to loss of freedom with some killer lines- ‘I’m so glad that you belong to me, oh my darling who wants to be free?’ and ‘loves a feeling and so is stealing’ among them. Not traditionally how song writers approached the subject of love.
