Best Friend Songs of All Time
This raspy-voiced gem from the Toy Story soundtrack plays as a reminder that people make for subpar friends. A stuffed cowboy, though? That's for life.
While most of Jack and Meg's ouvre delves into fuzzed-out bombast, this tender-hearted tune opts for soft-spoken lyrics and plucked acoustic guitar. Sweet, ain’t it?
It’s hard to think of a better match than Freddie Mercury soaring voice and Brian May’s searing lead guitar, both of which are in fine form on this timeless ode to friendship.
Good for Ringo that Paul and John wrote this song’s hummable, easily sing-able melody with their buddy’s distinctive baritone in mind.
Even though it serves superbly as the Golden Girls theme song, Gold’s tune stands alone as a timeless tribute to friendship and gratitude.
The reciprocal nature of friendship—important!—is at the heart of Withers’ heart-string-tugging tune.
There's countless renditions of this Carole King soft rocker—Barbara Streisand, Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield all have their versions—but James Taylor's hushed folkie tones bring it a unique intimacy.
Sampling the superb “Friends” by Whodini, DOOM cycles through friend in its different forms—from friends who need “trees for the blunt” to those who “be around whether you paid or bummy.”
"Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter / Togetherness, well that's all I'm after," tween MJ sings—sounds like a solid grasp of the concept of friendship for a 12-year old.
Both the R&B hit and 1984 film classic it inspired stand as timeless tributes to camaraderie.
