Bonnie and Clyde were gunned down by police on this date in 1934. Their murderous exploits are legendary, but the public's fascination with them was rooted in the idea that they were a romantic couple. To mark the occasion we'll feature songs of tragic love. Leave your suggestion in the comments below and we'll put together a set this morning.
p.s. When we say "songs of tragic love," we mean love songs in which someone dies.
Here's what we played:
Rosanne Cash with Jeff Tweedy "Long Black Veil"
The Grateful Dead "El Paso"
Fairport Convention "Matty Groves"
The Decemberists "O Valencia!"
