Off Broadway's "Drop Me a Line" is pretty standard circa-1980 power-pop, but it's not without its charms. As bad as the opening line ("Drop me a line from your space and time, bring me a basket of loot") is, the way that Cliff Johnson trills the "rrrr"s on those lines cracks me up. Oh, and it has some pretty awesome scat-singing between the two guitar solos and right at the end of the song. The song has a heavier sound than the rest of their album On as well, and it sounds pretty good in the context of that sequence of songs. On its own, though, it doesn't sound as good.
