In his newly published Autobiography—which recently broke sales records in the U.K. and is set to be published in the U.S. by Putnam—English rock idol and professional misanthrope Morrissey puts a great deal of love and care into cataloguing the pop stars and songs that came before him, from David Bowie to Shirley Bassey to Millie’s “My Boy Lollipop.”

You can listen to the whole playlist below.
