Roy Kelton Orbison began his career in the 1950's, becoming the biggest selling artist of the early 1960's. He suffered many tragedies in the late 1960's. When he decided to record again, it was one of the most anticipated comebacks in music history. "She's a Mystery to Me" is the single from Roy Orbison's 1989 album, 'Mystery Girl'. The track was written for Orbison by Bono and The Edge of U2. The album 'Mystery Girl' received its name from the song.
Roy Orbison offered his song - 'Only The Lonely' to both Johnny Cash and to Elvis to record...both turned it down, so Orbinson set about recording it himself. It became his first hit after releasing in July of 1960, hitting #2 on the Billboard Top 100.
