"You Got It" is a song from Roy Orbison's twenty-second studio album, Mystery Girl (1989). The song was released posthumously in January 1989 with "The Only One" as the B-side,[1] and according to the Official Roy Orbison Discography by Orbison researcher Marcel Riesco, released again with "Crying" (version with k.d. lang) shortly thereafter.[1] The A-side reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Adult Contemporary chart,[2] returning Orbison to the top 10 for the first time in 25 years.[3] 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.

According to Riesco, the song was recorded at guitarist Mike Campbell's garage in Los Angeles, California and mixed at Friar Park in Henley-on-Thames, England.[4] Orbison gave his only public rendition of the hit (a mimed performance) at the Diamond Awards Festival in Antwerp, Belgium on November 19, 1988, just 17 days before his death and before the single was released. This footage was incorporated into the song's music video.[5] A 2014 version incorporated videos of rehearsal and practice sessions.

Background[edit]

"You Got It" was written by Orbison and his Traveling Wilburys bandmates Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty. Their first songwriting collaboration, it was written during the Christmas season of 1987 and recorded in Mike Campbell's garage in Los Angeles, California in April 1988. Lynne, Petty and Phil Jones provided other instrumentation and background vocals.[6]
