Mr. Mysterious

Album: not released on an album (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • In an interview with the July 22, 2010 edition of London Metro newspaper, Eliza Doolittle was asked "What was the first song you wrote?" to which she replied: "I was 13 and it was called Mr. Mysterious. It was about a boy I'd made up because I didn't really know any boys at the time. I was copying Destiny's Child, I wanted to sound like them. I listened to it again the other day. It's alright." >>
