Morrissey to Release 20th Anniversary Edition of The Most Important Record of My Childhood

Posted By on Tue, Jul 13, 2010 at 10:39 AM

On September 27th, Morrissey will release a 20th Anniversary Edition of his brilliant 1990 collection, Bona Drag, which will include six never before heard songs from the same era. The original album was a compilation of Morrissey's fist seven post-Smiths singles, and it still stands as some of the best work of his career. From "Piccadilly Palare" and "Interesting Drug" to "The Last of the Famous International Playboys," "Suedehead" and literally every other song, it's just non-stop hits. And in terms of the quality of the recording, I've always thought it stood the test of time quite nicely, but it's been remastered anyway, so here's hoping they didn't screw it up. Full tracklist after the jump.

Original album:
"Piccadilly Palare"
"Interesting Drug"
"November Spawned A Monster"
"Will Never Marry"
"Such A Little Thing Makes Such A Big Difference"
"The Last Of The Famous International Playboys"
"Ouija Board, Ouija Board"
"Hairdresser On Fire"
"Everyday Is Like Sunday"
"He Knows I’d Love To See Him"
"Yes, I Am Blind"
"Lucky Lisp"

Bonus tracks:
"Happy Lovers At Last United"
"Lifeguard On Duty"
'"lease Help The Cause Against Loneliness"
"Oh Phoney"
"The Bed Took Fire"
"Let The Right One Slip In"

Also, let's just watch the video for "Last of the Famous International Playboyee" because ugh, so fucking good.
