Lead/Lyric Sheet:

Background of the Song

Drop In  is quite simply a fun bit of nonsense.
The Gory Details:
Since there are thick chords in this little tongue-in-cheek blues shuffle,  I contrasted them with plain triadic "power chords" in the two interludes where the voices are singing "aahhhs".   These straight triads stand out in relief from all those extended chords.

I used Native Intruments' B4 for the organ.   It's a very authentic soft-synth emulation of the Hammond B3 and Leslie that I used to play on stage.
