Morrissey's Thirteen Favorite Songs Of All Time

Last month we posted Morrissey’s NYC/Chelsea Hotel-heavy 13 Favorite Albums Of All Time. Things go in a slightly different direction in his “Supreme 13 Singles,” but New York stays on top, doubly.

13 Mr Bloe – “Groovin With Mr Bloe” (1970)
12 Roxy Music – “Do The Strand” (1978)
11 The Supremes – “I’m Livin’ In Shame” (1968)
10 Paul Jones – “I’ve Been A Bad, Bad Boy” (1967)
09 The Crystals – “All Grown Up” (1962)
08 Shocking Blue – “Mighty Joe” (1970)
07 Al Martino – “Granada” (1961)
06 Buffy Sainte-Marie – “Soldier Blue” (1971)
05 The Tams – “Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy” (1968)
04 Bob & Marcia – “Young, Gifted and Black” (1970)
03 The Sundown Playboys – “Saturday Nite Special” (1972)
02 Sparks -“This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both of Us” (1974)
01 New York Dolls – “Jet Boy” (1973)

As TwentyFourBit notes, Morrissey posted the list on Facebook in connection with his remastered, expanded “Everyday Is Like Sunday” single, which also features new artwork:

  1. Hm. Isn’t 1978 a little late for Do The Strand?

    • UK edition.

      • Brilliant! I thought it was something more along the lines of Morrissey being somehow exempt from the time space continuum, but this makes more sense.

        Though on second thought, I’m not going to completely disregard this whole “Morrissey is out of time” theory.
