Thanks. This awesome. Some of the '60s stuff isn't doing it for me, but I love having this playlist. Just added it to my Spotify lists.

Love the playlist, but I would like to say that Bernadette by the Four Tops is a rerecorded version from when the guys were a little older. It's still great but the original album version has much more feeling in my opinion, and I would assume this would be the version Morrissey would have originally heard. I only assume though, the book is not available here in the States as far as I know. Thanks again, what an awesome track listing and view into someones musical mind.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. Jeff, you're right, thanks for the heads up, I have replaced 'Bernadette' with the original single version.
