When former Smiths frontman Morrissey was asked his favorite British album, he responded that he could "only think of one truly great British album: Roxy Music's For Your Pleasure."

The mid-70s art-rock group, led by Bryan Ferry, is a perennial inclusion on Most Influential Bands of All Time lists. Their mix of glam, Beatles melodies and experimental rock would influence the entire glam movement of the 70s and, more currently, everyone from Franz Ferdinand and Scissor Sisters to Blur and Radiohead

In honor of Ferry's 67th birthday today, discover (or re-discover) the singer's genius with our Spotify playlist of Roxy Music and Ferry's diverse solo career. Enjoy!
