Information

Songs To Save Your Life - "Compiled exclusively for NME by Morrissey" and given away with the June 19, 2004 issue. From the insert:

"Burn down the disco/Hang the blessed DJ/Because the music
that they constantly play/It says nothing to me about my life"
The Smiths, 'Panic', 1988

Morrissey hopes this compilation will say everything to you about your life,
and maybe a little about his. Over the course of this CD Morrissey leads
you by the hand from spiky punk to sun-kissed country grooves via bands
he knows he's influenced and new acts he's now consciously endorsing as
the legacy of his talent and work. It's a fascinating compilation and we're
very proud to present it. Now it's all yours.
Thanks, Mozzer.

Conor McNicholas
Editor, NME
