‘My Stunning Mystery Companion’ is a quiet love declaration, with clear and direct lyrics over an acoustic folk guitar, and it is one the last songs of his 2008 album ‘Solo Acoustic Volume 2’, although it originally comes from his 2002 ‘Naked Ride Home’ studio album.
With its peaceful tone, the song breathes with an instrumental part just before the last two verses, and the crystal clear vocals are harmonious with a touch of country. Jackson Browne is someone you listen to closely, and because the music is acoustic and stripped down, you don’t miss a word of the delivery.
It’s honest and personal, or at least you get the impression you know him a little more after sentences like ‘What with all my expectations long abandoned/And a future I no longer saw my hand in’,… Was he in a bad place before he found this stunning companion?
But why is the companion stunning and a mystery at the same time? Is it because he does not want to reveal who is this person? Or is it because it’s still a mystery to him she is staying with him?
Or rather, is it just because the two words stunning and mystery sound good side by side? They really do. Just as two persons who have met and know they are right for each other. This is a mystery indeed, but a true benediction’ beyond his understanding’, as he is saying.
And it’s always easy to complain, but not very easy to tell you’re happy, and especially to say it as elegantly as he does.
