Frank Ocean Reveals His Favorite Songs Of All-Time In 'Boys Don't Cry' Zine [Playlist Stream]

Frank Ocean Reveals His Favorite Songs Of All-Time In 'Boys Don't Cry' Zine [Playlist Stream]

The deeper we dig into Frank Ocean's Boys Don't Cry zinethe more we learn just how much time and care went into Frank's comeback flood. In those glossy pages you see everything from interviews to screenplays to poems by friends to disposable camera grabs blown up to brilliant scale. But something that may have been lost unto you while skimming through in awe: Frank's list of his favorite songs.

And what a list it is. Everything from D'Angelo to Jimi Hendrix to James Blake to Frank Sinatra to The Cure (from which the very title of the zine is derived.) Now if someone would just put all of these gems into one playlist, we'd really be onto something, wouldn't we? Oh wait, I did just that (with the exception of Jaco's "Portrait Of Tracy"  and Prince's "When U Were Mine," for obvious reasons.) Peep the full track list and stream the expansive collection down below. Perhaps this will give you some context for Frank Ocean's latest, and perhaps greatest, reveal. Stream Endless and Blond on Apple Music.
