Roy Orbison – You Got It

“You Got It” is a song from Roy Orbison’s twenty-second studio album, Mystery Girl (1989). The song was released in January 1989 with “The Only One” as the B-side,and according to the Official Roy Orbison Discography by Orbison researcher Marcel Riesco, released again with “Crying” (version with k. d. lang) shortly thereafter.

The A-side reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Adult Contemporary chart, returning Orbison to the Top 10 for the first time in 25 years.

It also reached number three on the UK Singles Chart in early 1989, posthumously released after Orbison’s heart attack on December 6, 1988. Although it is an Orbison solo single, Orbison’s fellow Traveling Wilburys bandmates, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, co-wrote the song and played instruments on the record. Source

  1. I measured out my life to Roy Orbison songs. A very welcome post. Incredible voice and superb songwriter. He had a good deal of sadness in his life and made us all sad when he left us so early. I regularly find myself watching Black and White Night when I reminding just how good he was.
