Mystery Girl: Unraveled, the recently released documentary about the making of Roy Orbison’s last album looks super interesting and I am looking forward to seeing it. The film, produced and directed by three of his sons, Wesley, Roy, and Alex, features rare footage of the recording sessions and interviews with Tom Petty, Bono, Jeff Lynne, and many more.
Orbison’s life was rife with personal tragedy, namely the death of his two oldest sons when his home burned to the ground, and so many of his ballads reflect the pain and loss that he experienced during his lifetime. Dreams are also recurring themes in his music, but no matter what the story, his songs are amongst the most beautifully written in the history of popular music.
Sweet, sweet song from Mystery Girl ~
