"Arrow Through Me", unlike most songs on Back to the Egg, is more pop-oriented than rock-oriented.
"Arrow Through Me", harmonically it is almost like Duke Ellington could have had written it.
The song was used with the opening credits of, and as a main melody line through, the 1980 movie Oh! Heavenly Dog, starring Chevy Chase, Jane Seymour and Benji. In 2010, neo-soul artist Erykah Badu sampled "Arrow Through Me" on an album track called "Gone Baby, Don't Be Long" on her CD 'New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)'. It also appeared in the WKRP in Cincinnati episode "God Talks to Johnny" (1979).
