As listed by Ocean himself in the Boys Don’t Cry zine — which also includes, among other things, a list of his favorite movies and an ode to McDonald’s french fries by Kanye West — and highlighted by Genius, the artist’s faves include everything from Jimi Hendrix’s “Crosstown Traffic” and Frank Sinatra’s “How Insensitive” to Death Grips’ “Bitch Please,” The Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus,” Outkast’s “Vibrate,” “Something About Us” by Daft Punk and, yes indeed, The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry.”
