Kenny Rogers' version with The First Edition defies the test of time. His name wasn't even associated with mainstream Nashville country when he cut it. His Just Dropped In sounds even psychedelic, enough for the Coen Brothers to use it in The Big Lebowsky thirty years later. In fact, Mickey Newbury wrote the song as a warning against LSD. More customers dropped in, as it's a Mickey Newbury song. See: Weeping Annalea and Funny Familiar Forgotten Feelings. Again, the author didn't cut it first.
