"Drifting Away" is a song featured in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!. It serves as the background music for the gameplay portion of Dribble & Spitz's stage, playing on the radio while they drive a customer to the Diamond City harbor.
The lyrics of "Drifting Away" allude to the Dribble Taxi and the ocean, which is likely in reference to their passenger, who turns out to be a mermaid. There are four variants of the song, each named after a season of the year, which switch off after each loop of the song.
"Drifting Away" appears in the minigame Jump Forever, along with Four Seasons and the Jumpin' Rope theme. After Kat & Ana's stage is completed, this is the default tune until the player scores 100 jumps. The song also plays in the second level of Dr. Crygor's microgame Cymbalism.
In WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, an instrumental remix serves as Dribble & Spitz's theme. The player can also view a "Drifting Away" music video in the "Movie Matters" section. This version fades between each of the four variants of the song. An excerpt of the "Spring" and "Summer" variants can also be heard in the "WarioWare, Inc. Medley" in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
A special arrangement of the song, which only features the "Spring" and "Summer" variants, is included on the album Nintendo Sound Selection Vol.3: B-Side Music.
The song reappears as a record in WarioWare Gold, using the Mega Party Game$! arrangement.
