'Baby, It's Been a Long Time' is a working man's love song, of a recently domesticated relationship in all its endurance and tenacity. Always imagined this being played in a post-dinner living room, slow dancing while the world outside slowly dies away. The slide guitar part at the end is recorded using a cologne bottle because all of us forgot to get a slide on the day of the recording. Ended up being a really nice memory of us making spongebob noises in our dorm room. Hope it can mean as much to you as it does for us. Stay safe!
This song makes me feel like I'm living on a cloud without a worry in the world. And LOL the description "The slide guitar part at the end is recorded using a cologne bottle because all of us forgot to get a slide on the day of the recording." That's all the more reason to listen to the song!!
Baby, It’s Been a Long Time is beautifully rhythmic, calming and heartfelt. Its endearing lyrics and instrumentals put one in a slow dancing scene in an 80s movie, with an invitation of love and assurance. The song captures sounds of the past and present in great sincerity, creating nostalgia with a cologne bottle and Spongebob noises (?!?). It is the perfect slow-dancing, hand-holding melody, even for the lonely.
