It's such a BuckVie thing. I love this song so much. It really lifts my spirits.
It's just gorgeous.

I didn't like it(and Only Over You) once upon a time, but they've both grown on me over the years.

Always loved, loved, loved Mystified. The guitar solo towards the end is perhaps the closest Lindsey has ever been to playing like Peter Green- so delicate.

Oh I love it. I've been rather obsessing over it in recent days, in fact. Yes, those two guitar solos are things of beauty and wonder.

The whole atmosphere of it is just transporting - I always used to love it when I listened to Tango on cassette on my Walkman (God I'm so old) and it ended side one; it would carry me away...

It's an important part of the magical, mystical feeling they achieved with Tango. It's quite a slight song - very simple in terms of lyric and melody, but the setting and performance - the feel of it - is utterly gorgeous.

What a wonderful description. Very close to how I feel about the song, too.

Have always loved it. The song feels like the Tango cover to me. The harmonies are absolutely stunning and that guitar solo is so pitch perfect, so melodic and not a note is wasted. I was always surprised at the hate it gets.

What must I read here?
Mystified is awful!!! It's the epitome of evil hardcore saccharine elevator music from insignificance hell. At least imho, it really is.

I have always liked Mystified. I have always loved Only Over You. I'm not a fan of the bongo sounding drums in Mystified, it needs a little more bass too, but the guitar is great. Tango is Christine's best album in terms of balance. Little Lies and Everywhere were the pop hits, Isn't It Midnight is the rocker, and Mystified is the slow song. Weirdly enough, as I was typing this post I turned on Mystified on my iTunes and then Family Man came on after it, those two songs sound really good together.

I feel like that about those two songs but also You and I Part 2 as well. I think that's mainly down to the 'Oh the phantoms crawl out of the night' line.

I love 'Mystified'. It should have been a single.
