One Slip - Pink Floyd

  • The album gets its title from a line of this song's lyrics. It was first released as the B side for "Learning to Fly". It was then re-released as the third single from the album in the UK where it was a minor hit and was the fourth single from the album in the US where it did well on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks charts.
  • Sound engineer Andy Jackson entered a wrong code into the studio's security system to record the alarm for the song. It is the fastest song on the album.
  • The track was the final song from the album played live when it was the first encore on the Momentary Lapse of Reason tour from 1987-89. The band resurrected the track on one show on their 1994 The Division Bell tour when the band performed it in Oakland, California.
  • The video for the track composed of old 1930s plane flying footage interspersed with concert footage filmed during the band's three night run at the The Omni in Atlanta, Georgia in November of 1987 directed by Lawrence Jordan (whom has directed concert films for Rush, Mariah Carey and Billy Joel). Videos for "On the Turning Away" and "The Dogs of War" were also filmed from this concert where the video for "One Slip" was filmed.
