When it comes to earnest, gushy proclamations of adoration, love songs get all the attention. But what about the people who console you when you're sad, or going through a horrible breakup? You know, the people who are there for you when the rain starts to fall? (No, not the ones in Central Perk.)
The friendship songs below are a celebration of the platonic loves that make our lives brighter. They include mainstream pop chart-toppers and classic-rock anthems, sweet-natured comedy tunes and heart-stirring ballads. And while we've ditched some of the more expected moves (if you're looking for The Rembrandts, they're hanging with Rachel and Ross on HBO), we're confident they'll inspire you to ring your bestie and tell them you love them.
