* Comedian Richard Jeni had a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUKw3hrWHpg routine]] on the brutality of listening to "nothing but love songs" radio after a breakup.
-->That’s right, every city in this country has a station on the radio whose whole purpose is to get lonely people to commit suicide. Just when you’re feeling better, you’re in your car and there’s some guy going, “You’re listening to nothing but love songs. No rock, no jazz, nothing but throw-yourself-off-a-goddamn building love songs. And now for all you people who just broke up and are feeling bad, here’s a song called ‘You’ll Be Alone the Rest of Your Goddamn Life’.”
