Now we have a Cure playlist, how about a playlist for the band and singer that really defined alternative music in the 80s? Morrissey continues to produce exciting and innovative records still, as well as the main Smiths albums (The Smiths, Hatful of Hollow, Meat Is Murder, The Queen Is Dead, Louder Than Bombs, Strangeways Here We Come, Rank), Morrissey has produced ten quality solo studio albums spanning 1988 to 2014.
This artist inspires a rare level of dedication and love among his fans, and he has a worldwide appeal, particularly in the UK and the USA, and this list would be of universal appeal, unlike some of the very specialized lists we see regularly for people who have hardly produced any work of sufficient quality to warrant their own list.
You could even make the playlist 'Morrissey and Marr' and include Johnny Marr's solo work, 'The Messenger' and 'Playland'.
The Smiths and Morrissey not only produced unique music and lyrics, but they have influenced a generation of artists since. True pioneers in music.
