Go down to your local auto shop and they sell proper glue just for this purpose. It will cost you about five bucks and does a great job.

if the reason your mirror fell off was because of extreme BASS. Ultra Clear Araldite (and lots of it) is the go.

concorde had his mirror fall off taking a big hunk of windsheild with it, mirror glue only works if the window is undamaged as it needs a flush bond. Araldite is not as picky, and so far has been the only thing to keep the mirror on the glass.
