Status Quo singles chronology

"Mystery Song" is a single released by the British rock band Status Quo in 1976. It was included on the album Blue for You.[1]

The song concerns a young man's encounter with a prostitute. The B-side was "Drifting Away", from the band's 1974 album Quo.

The song was reprised, in 2014, for the band's thirty-first studio album Aquostic (Stripped Bare). It was featured in the ninety-minute launch performance of the album at London's Roundhouse on 22 October, the concert being recorded and broadcast live by BBC Radio 2 as part of their In Concert series.[2][3]
