Tragically Hip, The Escape Is At Hand For The Travellin' Man Comments
  1. Roy Glenn

    Why, what did he do? And she chuckled.

  2. Brent Hoadley

    i could never understand why this whole drum track wasnt just thump, thump thump repeat (on bass pedal)

  3. Snurre .Sprett

    Great song!! Love the Hip!!!

  4. ForzaGamer18

    The beautiful sounds in the song remind me of my crush

  5. Spaghetti Monster

    this song haunts my heart. my mom called me one morning asked if i heard about gord, she told me she was sorry but Gord had passed away. she died 21 days later. Less than 4 months ago a close friend died of a heart attack, he was the biggest hip fan I know and people say that about me. Anywya,s this tune... i dont know how to describe it but i have fond memories of me and 2 of my buddies sitting on the roof early in the morning after everybody left and the party was over. We sat up there listened to this and just looked at the stars a million miles away. Those dam words dont describe it at all damit, i mean this song and many other Hip tunes move me deeply and now as the years have gone by songs now spark memories, memories more meaningful than I would have imagined. This cycle of life stuff sure is a rollercoaster. I miss you mom, i miss you gord, I miss you Daveyboy. I dont know anything about religion of if there is an after life but rip.

    Roy Glenn

    Spaghetti Monster hang in there, I believe in the spaghetti monster too. Love is the answer

    Escape Is at Hand for the Travellin’ Man

    The Tragically Hip

    It was our third time in New York
    It was your fourth time in New York
    We were fifth and sixth on the bill
    We talk a little about our bands
    Talk a little of our future plans
    It's not like we were best friends

    That number scheme comes back to me
    In times beyond our heartbeat

    We hung around 'til the final band called
    "Escape Is At Hand For The Travellin' Man"
    You yelled in my ear, this music speaks to me
    They launched into, "Lonely From Rock 'n Roll"
    Followed by, "They Checked Out An Hour Ago"
    Closing with, "All Desires Turn Concrete"

    Those melodies come back to me
    Time beyond our heartbeat

    I guess I'm too slow, yes, I'm too, yes, I'm too slow
    But you said anytime of the day was fine
    You said anytime of the night was also fine

    I walked through your revolving door
    Got no answer on the seventh floor
    Elevator gave a low moan
    The pigeons sagged the wire with their weight
    Listening to the singing chambermaid
    She sang, "They Checked Out An Hour Ago", and chuckled

    Those melodies come back to me
    Time beyond our heartbeat

    I guess I'm too slow, yes, I'm too, yes, I'm too slow
    But you said anytime of the day was fine
    You said anytime of the night was also fine

    Our heartbeat, our heartbeat, our heartbeat

    Long conversation or idle chit chat
    Maybe dive in or maybe hang back
    Idle conversation or idle chit chat
    Maybe dive in or maybe hang back

  23. Sean Lapham

    It was our third time in New York
    It was your fourth time in New York
    We were fifth and sixth on the bill
    We talk a little about our bands
    Talk a little of our future plans
    It's not like we were best of friends
    Why, what did we do?

    That number scheme comes back to me
    In times beyond our heartbeat

    We hung around till the final band
    Called "Escape Is At Hand For The Travelling Man"
    You yelled in my ear this music speaks to me
    They launched into "Lonely From Rock And Roll"
    Followed by "They Checked Out An Hour Ago"
    Closing with "All Desires Turn Concrete"

    Those melodies come back to me
    At times beyond our heartbeat

    I guess I'm too slow, yes, I'm too, yes, I'm too slow
    You said any time of the day was fine
    You said any time of the night was also fine

    I walked through your revolving door
    Got no answer on the seventh floor
    Elevator gave a low moan
    The pigeons sagged the wire with their weight
    Listening to the singing chambermaid
    She sang "They Checked Out An Hour Ago"
    I kind of chuckled

    Those melodies come back to me
    In times beyond our heartbeat

    I guess I'm too slow, yes, I'm too, yes, I'm too slow
    You said any time of the day was fine
    You said any time of the night was also fine
    Our heartbeat, our heartbeat, our heartbeat

    Long conversation or idle chit chat
    Maybe dive in or maybe hang back

    Idle conversation or idle chit chat
    Maybe dive in or maybe hang back

  24. Re New

    Omg.... say it isn't so. I. Just found out. I helped the band with the break down/ load up after a show at the TROCADERO in Philadelphia. There were about 1500 people there. Quite an intimate show. I miss Winnipeg Manitoba and I will truly miss The Tragically Hip. R.I.P.

  25. Christine Heynen

    Beautiful song. <3

    So much love. SO much!!!

  28. Barry Budinski

    Dat Groove man...

  29. Barry Budinski

    Been listening to their music forever. Early stuff is cool. My favourite stuff is the songs that don't get heavy airplay. The obscure Hip tunes just keep getting better and better as I discover them.  One of Canada's best bands ever. This is just my humble opinion. Let's all enjoy the magic that is the Tragically Hip.

    One Love

    well said. they indeed have a very unique magical quality that shines and shimmers like a diamond in the sunlight. best band ever.

  30. directedbydavid

    i will miss him

  31. Bryan Turner

    Good-bye, Gord.

  32. Andrew Skulish

    Just want to say Rest in Peace Gord Downie you were and still are a Canadian icon. You will be greatly missed by many.

    Chad M

    Don't pigeon hole this artist please. He was a human being. Pointless meaningless titles like Canadian have no place in art. Shove your nationalism up ur arse. Thank you.

  33. Joseph Castro

    Favorite Hip song. RIP, you beautiful man.

  34. saphorr

  40. Bryan Turner

    John vincent

    8 people have no soul.

    Brent Hoadley

    @John vincent 10 people now but dont worry one more like

  41. paul Parker

    Incredible tune,band,and you know who else ,,,,

  42. Grant Olsen

    A beautiful song that takes it's time getting to the chorus "guess I'm too slow"...what sweet regret...Rob's guitar is stellar on this too.

    SKOJCV

    I agree- their patience on getting to the chorus makes it all the more awesome.

    SoulfuzZ

    SKOJCV they have a gift for that. It’s like musical foreplay.

  43. foodieatheart

    The beginning & vibe reminds me of David Bowie's Lazarus.. believe that's the song.

    Kyle Brohams Coates

    The beginning also has a Radiohead In Rainbows vibe. I think the song I’m thinking of is jigsaw falling into place

    comajoebuck999

    Silversun Pickups...

  44. Ed Muise

    Here for the Tunes.but so so sad.:(
