Let It Slide
by Saga

Songfacts®:

  • The Canadian band Saga released their first album in 1978. Twenty albums later, they issued Sagacity, which featured this track.

    In our interview with lead singer Michael Sadler, he said the song is about "telling little white lies." Said Sadler: "Are you going to come clean or are you going to just let it slide this time? Which you can do at a certain point, but after a while you're going to have to 'fess up to something."
