My wife and I had some fun this morning when I pulled up this song.
She's always loved country, including Kenny Rodgers growing up.
I was a psychedelic rock guy in the 60s/70s.
When this hit came out by Kenny Rodger's, completely different than anything he ever did, I was shocked and loved it.
I just played it for her and she was shocked that he did this song and does not care for it.
Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" is a psychedelic rock song written by Mickey Newbury and best known from a version by The First Edition, recorded in 1967 and released to popular success in 1968. Said to reflect the LSD experience, the song was intended to be a warning about the dangers of using the drug
I always liked the canned/recorded versions best for their (usually) superior instrumental arrangements.
