Where are you now and what can you see?
I'm in my house in Newcastle, looking at the tree in my front garden and ignoring all the other things that I'm supposed to be doing right now.

Recording Morrissey is never straightforward. The former Smiths frontman is a gifted lyricist and tends to emphasise that aspect of his work. By the time the American producer Jerry Finn worked with him in 2003, the notoriously choosy Morrissey had used four different producers over half a dozen solo albums. He had also relocated to Los Angeles and not released any new music since 1997. For the recording of You Are The Quarry, Finn decided to shake Morrissey out of his comfort zone by changing the singer's modus operandi.

As the introduction cheerfully admits, not all of the songs featured here will change your life, but given that there are not just 1,000 but 1,577 of them, there is a fair chance that one or two might. The book takes the form of a series of essays by Time Out contributors on various categories of song: songs about home, about travel, about food, about drugs, songs used in film soundtracks, English songs, gospel songs, comedy songs, miserabilist country songs and songs by gender-bending artists. Pop, rock, jazz, hip-hop and classical music are all represented, and the essays are intercut with reprinted TO interviews with such luminaries as Morrissey, Paul Simon, Burt Bacharach and Johnny Cash, plus various artists on their favourites. (Would you have guessed that David Byrne would opt for Missy Elliott's "Work It"? Or that one of Dizzee Rascal's faves is Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit"?) And, of course, lists: the top 10 songs about London, the top 10 songs featuring the name Caroline.
