Every Song From Morrissey’s Autobiography, in One Great Playlist

131019_BOOKS_MorrisseyAutobiographyCover

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.”

Now, Moz superfan Greg Thorpe has reciprocated that love and care by gathering all the songs of Autobiography, in the order that they’re mentioned, into a single playlist, so that fans can hear all the tunes that shaped and sustained Anglophone pop's most famous depressive. You can listen to the whole playlist below.
