Morrissey's Favorite Songs

Since we all love Morrissey, we must all care what Morrissey's thirteen favorite songs ever are, right? Right. Seriously, though, I do always find it interesting to see what amazing artists listen to. Kurt Cobain turned me on to Beat Happening, and it was Irmin Schmidt who first informed me about Stockhausen. Morrissey's selections make decent sense in the context of his own artistic output, and I like the songs on the list that I've heard--especially #2. That's a classic. The list is as follows:

13. Mr. Bloe--Groovin' With Mr. Bloe
12. Roxy Music--Do The Strand
11. The Supremes--I'm Livin' In Shame
10. Paul Jones--I've Been A Bad, Bad Boy
9. The Crystals--All Grown Up
8. Shocking Blue--Mighty Joe
7. Al Martino--Granada
6. Buffy Sainte-Marie--Soldier Blue
5. The Tams--Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy
4. Bob & Marcia--Young, Gifted & Black
3. The Sundown Playboys--Saturday Night Special
2. Sparks--This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us
1. New York Dolls--Jet Boy

Interesting choices. Can't say my list would be at all similar, but, then again, I can't say I've written anything fit for Morrissey to wipe his ass with. So who am I to criticize?
