Roy Orbison — “She’s a Mystery to Me” (from Mystery Girl) — She's a Mystery to Me - Mystery Girl

Written specifically for Orbison by U2’s Bono and the Edge (and recorded just weeks before his untimely death in late fall of 1988), “Mystery” gave Roy a final chance to wrap his booming, brillliant baritone around a miraculous lyric and create something riveting and real. A quietly haunting masterpiece.
