DUBLIN, IRELAND (CNN) – Happy birthday, Bono! The Irish crooner turned 60 on Sunday.

To commemorate the special occasion, the Grammy Award winning lead singer of U2 shared a playlist on the band’s website titled “60 Songs That Saved My Life.”

Bono said those songs are, “the ones that got me from there to here, 0 to 60.”

He included tunes from legends like the Beatles, Prince, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie — as well as from newer artists, such as Billie Eilish.

The activist also thanked the artists who created those 60 songs and wrote a fan letter for each tune.
