"Arrow Through Me" is an R&B song by Wings, released upon their 1979 album Back to the Egg.
"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.
It was the A-side of the second US single released from Back to the Egg and peaked at number 29. The B-side was "Old Siam, Sir", which was the A-side of the first UK single.
The rumour that it inspired ABC's 1982 hit "Poison Arrow" is false, although there are similarities in its music video to that of Wings' "Goodnight Tonight".
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).
