Slide may refer to:
In baseball, a slide is the action of a player, acting as a baserunner, who drops his body to the ground once he is very close to the base he is approaching and slides along the ground to reach the base.
A baserunner may slide into a base in a number of different ways and for a number of perceived reasons, including to avoid a tag out, to avoid overrunning the base, and to interfere or avoid contact with the defensive player protecting the base. Adult amateur players should determine whether they will benefit by sliding in a particular game situation, and whether an increased risk of injury will make a slide worthwhile.
A slide is a shoe that is backless and open-toed, essentially an open-toed mule. Generally, all slides are not sandals. Thongs and flip flops are normally classified separately. Slides can be high-heeled, flat-heeled or somewhere in between, and may cover nearly the entire foot from ankle to toe, or may have only one or two narrow straps. They usually include a single strap or a sequence of straps across the toes and the lower half of the foot to hold the shoe on the foot. The term is descriptive in that this shoe is easy to 'slide' on and off the foot when the wearer wants to do so. Slides are currently trending because of the desire for a more comfortable shoe that still allows you to participate in the activities and sports that you have done before.
A slide is a skateboarding trick where the skateboarder slides sideways either on the deck or on the wheels.
Slide is the fifth album by Lisa Germano. It was released in 1998 by 4AD, and was her last album for the label.
"Slide" was a hit song by R&B/funk band Slave in 1977. Released from their self-titled debut album, it reached number one on the R&B charts in 1977 and peaked at number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
The beat for the song was sampled for "Freeze" by Success N Effect.
The slide (Schleifer in German, Coulé in French, Superjectio in Latin) is a musical ornament often found in baroque musical works, but used during many different periods. It instructs the performer to begin two or three scale steps below the marked note and "slide" upward—that is, move stepwise diatonically between the initial and final notes. Though less frequently found, the slide can also be performed in a descending fashion.
The Slide (stylized SLIDE) is a hoverboard in developed by Lexus. The board has 32 Yttrium-Barium-Copper Oxide superconductors cooled by liquid nitrogen and rides on a magnetic track. Lexus built a skate park in Barcelona, Spain specifically for the SLIDE. The SLIDE was built for the scientific achievement, not for public sale.
Slide is an EP by the band Luna.
Released shortly after Lunapark, Slide follows in familiar footsteps of its predecessor. Consisting of two album tracks from the debut (Slide and a stripped-down demo version of Hey Sister) and an original track (Rollercoaster), the rest of this EP is peppered with cover songs and introduces Sean Eden on two of the six tracks. As would become common on Luna EPs and singles, the cover songs provided on Slide have been given the Luna treatment and aside from The Velvet Underground's "Ride Into the Sun", the songs sound remarkably different from their original versions.
A slide is a part of a wind instrument consisting of two (or more) pieces of tubing fitted one closely inside the other, and used to vary the overall length of the tube, and therefore the pitch of the instrument. Often two sets of tubes are used, with a U bend attaching them; This arrangement is called a single slide.
Slides are used in four main ways:
- In instruments such as the trombone and slide whistle, moving the slide is the main way of selecting the note while playing.
- In instruments such as the trumpet, the slide is moved while playing to help correct the pitch of the note selected by other means.
- In instruments such as the french horn, there are many slides used to tune the instrument, sometimes even during practice.
- Concerning the tuba, many instruments are built so that the first slide may be manipulated during play. This allows compensation for the flat second-space C, a function of being the fifth partial harmonic of the open bugle.
"Slide" is a song recorded by American alternative rock group The Goo Goo Dolls. It was released in September 1998 as the first commercial single release from their sixth studio album, Dizzy Up the Girl.

In Irish traditional music, a slide is a tune type in akin to, and often confused with, a single jig. Slides originated the Sliabh Luachra region of southwestern Ireland.
Though slides contain the same number of beats per tune as a single jig, melodies are phrased in four rather than two beats. Consequently, single jigs are notated as having eight bars per part and slides as having four bars. Furthermore, the pace is quicker than single jigs, often around 150bpm. While single jigs are often danced solo by step dancers, slides are usually danced in groups by set dancers, sometimes in sets with polkas.
