Editors' Notes Bono is turning 60 years old, and to mark the occasion he’s created a playlist of the most important songs in his life. It spans generations and genres, from Frank Sinatra to Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish to Angélique Kidjo, and all points in between. But we’ll let the U2 icon explain it himself: “These are some of the songs that saved my life—the ones I couldn’t have lived without, the ones that got me from there to here, zero to 60 through all the scrapes, all manner of nuisance. From the serious to the silly and the joy—mostly joy. I wanted to thank the artists and everyone who helped make them. They were doing the same for me”.
