"Slip Away" by Pablo Cruise

Song#:  0780
Date:  10/17/1981
Debut:  88
Peak:  75
Weeks:  5
Genre:  Soft Rock

Pop Bits:  The group's sixth album, "Reflector," produced a Top 20 single when "Cool Love" reached #13. The LP's second single couldn't generate any interest and it got stuck in the bottom quarter of the chart. It would be their last song to reach the chart. The band would issue one more album before calling it quits.

ReduxReview:  This is not a bad song, but it is a snoozer of a single. There is nothing about this that would make it stand out on radio. That album did not have a bounty of great songs, but there were a couple that seemed to be more single-worthy than this one. So why this sleeper was chosen is a mystery.

ReduxRating:  4/10

Trivia:  Founding member Cory Lerios later formed a production company that composed music for films and TV. He won a Daytime Emmy in 1997 for Outstanding Musical Direction and Composition for a Drama Series for his work on the soap "Days of Our Lives."
