Far Far Away" is a song by the British rock band Slade, released in 1974 as the lead single from the band's first soundtrack album and fifth studio album Slade in Flame, in promotion of the upcoming film of the same name. The song was written by lead vocalist Noddy Holder and bassist Jim Lea, and produced by Chas Chandler. It reached No. 2 in the UK, remaining in the charts for six weeks. The song was certified UK Silver by BPI in November 1974.
The overstated Jacques Brel/Rod McKuen style vocals on their "If You Go Away" or even the too-passionate reading of "The Twelfth of Never" erase all the potential and go beyond being cumbersome. They are downright annoying.

So when asking how far away is Australia from Europe for example, then the answer is a long way. On the other hand, getting to Bali is a quick flight from Sydney; 6 hours to Darwin and 2 hours to Bali, or if you live in Perth, then it is nearly a suburb at only a 3 hour flight. Read Bali 10 Things to do in this Tropical Paradise. Is it Worth it? Well yes. Even when you arrive early, which is always a dilemma it is worth the long haul flight, just as it is for people to come to Australia. London is almost exactly on the opposite side of the globe. In fact, if you draw a diagonal from London, through the center you come out in the Tasman sea half way between Tasmania and New Zealand. In other words, it’s about as far away as you could possibly be. Reply. Paula McInerney on 1 September, 2014 at 5:33 am.
And I'm far far away with my head up in the clouds And I'm far far away with my feet down in the crowds Lettin' loose around the world But the call of home is loud Still as loud. I've seen the Paris lights from high upon Montmartre And felt the silence hanging low in No Man's Land And though those Spanish nights were fine It wasn't only from the wine It still seems all in hand
