Top 10 songs about friendship

Today I have prepared for you a list of songs that teach us about the facets of friendship.

What does friendship mean, and how can we manifest it as much as possible? You can find below the top 10 songs about friendship.

1. The Pretenders – I’ll stand by you

The song talks about love and loyalty. It was The Pretenders’ last hit song, and several versions have appeared over the years. Other singers for charitable causes sang some.

2. Wiz Khalifa – See You Again ft. Charlie Puth

The song was made in memory of Paul Walker, who died in a car accident and appeared in the movie Fast and Furious 7. Because of the message of this song, many singers came together: DJ Frank E., Andrew Cedar, Puth, and Manny Marroquin.

3. Bill Withers – Lean On Me

The song is inspired by the hard life of Bill Withers, who lived in a poor family. He sings about still having the community’s support, which probably helped him have confidence. The song reached No. 1 on the Top Songs Chart, both in its original version and in other versions sung by other singers.

4. Bruno Mars – Count On Me

It is a slow song appreciated for the positive message it conveys. But it has also been criticized because the melody line resembles “Over the rainbow.” 

What do you think? Does it sound similar?

5. James Taylor-You’ve got a Friend

Carole King wrote the song for her album, Tapestry, but Taylor asked if he could sing the song. 

“You’ve Got a Friend” is a song that conveys messages of that Flower Power era (which spoke of peace and understanding between all people, regardless of race, gender and religion).

6. The Beu Sisters – Anytime You Need a Friend

Mariah Carey sings the original song. And, of course, it has been praised for combining many styles and her incredible voice. 

I prefer this version because it is more upbeat and cheerful.

7. Rihanna – Umbrella

This is a fantastic song made by Jay-Z in collaboration with Rihanna. It has topped the charts and won various awards. 

However, it has also been controversial, as some believe the song and video convey Illuminati messages. What do you think?

8. Michael Jackson – Will You Be There

The song is produced in collaboration with the Cleveland Orchestra. Michael writes the lyrics in his favorite tree at Neverland Ranch. Although it has been awarded, several lawsuits over its rights have been filed.

9. From Witched – For Good

The song is part of a musical performance. The story is of the witch from Wizard of Oz but with a twist. The witch was good, and the fairy instills her death to live in peace.

10. The Rembrandts- I’ll be there for you

You recognize it from the show Friends. The style of The Beatles songs inspires the song. It was on the charts when it first came out, but probably because it was heard too much, it also made it to the worst songs in 2004.

Indeed, I hope you enjoyed the recommendations.
