Mickey Newbury – Just Dropped In/Wish I Was [Listen]

Armed with a voice serrated enough to saw through your plump and bleeding heart like a rusty old breadknife. Written by Mickey Newbury, this song is most famous for Kenny Rogers’s version you may remember from featuring in the drug sequence in the Big Lebowski. Complete with perhaps the most adeptly emotionally loaded whistling solo you’re ever likely to hear and a seamless transition midway through into the unreal “Wish I was”, this track blows Kenny Rogers’s version out of the water. A whiskey-soaked-flaming-pine-rocking-chair of a song.
