about

Upon returning from a well-deserved break in Palm Springs on March 12, 2020, COVID-19 hit Canada hard and the government put restrictions in place. Self-isolation for two weeks, for two busy people, was going to be a challenge if we did not find ways to entertain ourselves. The city of Winnipeg, like others, was like a ghost town at times with very little traffic and fear. It did not take long for us to pull out our guitars and begin to run through ideas for new songs. The idea for Slippin’ Away was born on a cool little lick Diane was strumming that seemed catchy enough, but required some further embellishment. The idea moved to our demo studio where we recorded and arranged the song. It took no time at all for the song to come together. That preliminary work was loaded to Google Drive for our bandmates who in turn sent us back their parts. Once edited into the song, the session remained until we met with producer Murray Pulver. Murray suggested some dynamic changes that the band ran through and then hit Stereobus Recording to record the parts. We recorded the instruments live off the floor followed up with a few overdubs. Recording the final vocals and backing vocals occurred at Signpost Music in Winnipeg. A surprising add came about with Murray suggesting a gang backing vocal approach which really enhanced the song. The song truly catches the essence of the tragedy the world has gone through during the pandemic.

lyrics

NOT SO MUCH, GOIN’ ON
TIME FOR THIS IS VERY WRONG
ALL MY DAYS JUST FADE AWAY

LOOKING THROUGH THE GLASS AT EMPTY STREETS
KIDS USED TO PLAY AND WE COULD MEET
TAKE ME BACK TO HOW IT USED TO BE

CAUSE IT’S SLIPPIN AWAY
SLIPPIN’ AWAY
IT COULD BE GONE TOMORROW
YES IT’S SLIPPIN’ AWAY…SLIPPIN’ AWAY…GONE TOMORROW

CAN WE PLAY AGAIN MAYBE NOT TODAY
WE WERE TOLD TO STAY AWAY
LET’S GO BACK TO HOW IT USED TO BE

CAUSE IT’S SLIPPIN’ AWAY
SLIPPIN’ AWAY
IT COULD BE GONE TOMORROW
YES ITS SLIPPIN’ AWAY
(YEAH ) …GONE TOMORROW
CAUSE I WANNA STAY

WHO KNEW ANYTHING WAS WRONG
I COULD HAVE CRIED ….SO….ALONE……

SOLO

WHOA IT’S SLIPPIN’ AWAY…..
SLIPPIN’ AWAY
IT COULD BE GONE TOMORROW
YES IT’S SLIPPIN’ AWAY
GONE TOMORROW
OH IT’S SLIPPIN’ AWAY
OOOHHH…. IT’S SLIPPIN’ AWAY
GONE, GONE, GONE


SLIPPIN’ AWAY…..
