"Far Far Away" was released as a single to promote the film titled Slade in Flame. The single was originally released on 7" vinyl. It was re-released in Germany in 1993 as a CD single as well as a 7" vinyl. In recent times, Far Far Away has been chosen to get Slade back in the UK charts through a Facebook group. As referenced in singer Noddy Holder's biography, Far Far Away remains his favourite Slade song.

There are two artists which use this name 1. A glam rock band from England 2. A rapper 1. Slade is a glam rock / hard rock group from Wolverhampton, England in the West Midlands they were formed in 1966 by Noddy Holder (Lead vocal & Rhythm Guitar), Dave Hill (Lead guitar), Jim Lea (Bass) and Don Powell (Drums). The group started out as the N'Betweens and were mainly a R&B act. They changed their name to Ambrose Slade and later shortened it to just Slade. In the late 60's they hooked up with manager Chas Chandler who proved to be the missing link, convincing the group to use the heavier rock style with clapping hands and stamping feet which they had success with live. This change of direction paid off, and from 1971 to 1975, the band scored a huge number of hit albums and singles. During the heights of their success, Slade out-performed chart rivals like Wizzard, Sweet, T.Rex, Suzi Quattro, Smokie, Gary Glitter and even David Bowie. In the UK, they achieved 12 top five hits from 1971 to 1974, six of which topped the charts. In total, Slade had 17 top 20 hits between 1971 and 1976 including six #1s, three #2s and two #3s.And the evergreen Merry Xmas Everybody has reached the charts eight times since topping the charts in 1973 until 2006. When Slade's success faded in the end of 1970s the band still were able to release credible records.They returned to the UK charts in the early 1980 and even managed to enter the charts in the United States, where the song Run Runaway hit #20 thanks to interest from the band Quiet Riot's cover of the Slade song Cum On Feel The Noize. The classic line-up of Slade split up in 1992 although Dave Hill and Don Powell carried on. 2. Slade less commonly refers to Grady Slade, Jr, a Rap artist Read more on Last.fm.

Far Far Away
Slade
I've seen the yellow lights go down the Mississippi I've seen the bridges of the world and they're for real I've had a red light off the wrist
Without me even gettin' kissed It still seems so unreal I've seen the morning in the mountains of Alaska I've seen the sunset in the East and in the West I've sang the glory that was Rome And passed the hound dog singer's home It still seems for the best And I'm far far away with my head up in the clouds And I'm far far away with my feet down in the crowds Lettin' loose around the world But the call of home is loud Still as loud I've seen the Paris lights from high upon Montmartre And felt the silence hanging low in no mans' land And though those Spanish nights were fine It wasn't only from the wine It still seems all in hand And I'm far far away with my head up in the clouds And I'm far far away with my feet down in the crowds Lettin' loose around the world But the call of home is loud Still as loud I've seen the yellow lights go down the Mississippi The Grand Bahama Island stories carry on And though those arigato smiles Stay in your memory for a while There still seems more to come. And I'm far far away with my head up in the clouds And I'm far far away with my feet down in the crowds Lettin' loose around the world But the call of home is loud Still as loud And I'm far far away with my head up in the clouds And I'm far far away with my feet down in the crowds Lettin' loose around the world But the call of home is loud Still as loud
