Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) – Song Of The Day

The First Edition

It’s weird to think that Jerry Lee Lewis once recorded this song and wasn’t fond if it at all because it really is one cool, hard to screw up tune. “Just Dropped In” was written by Mickey Newbury in the 60’s and was a big hit for Kenny Rogers-led band The First Edition back in 1968. The song was originally meant to be a warning against the effects of LSD despite having a funky, upbeat tone and being kinda trippy itself. It was famously used in the Coen Brothers movie The Big Lebowski in what remains one of the most glorious movie dream sequences out there.
