Who knew there were so many fantastic songs to dedicate to your best friend? This was definitely one of my favorite articles to write because as I was writing, I was sending the songs to my BFF! They're all just really feel-good songs that sum up your whole friendship. Check out some of my favorites and let me know which of the songs to dedicate to your best friend is your favorite!
This song will take you back to that first day that you met your bestie. We all had that moment where we said "I can tell that we're gong to be friends". It's one of the best moments to meet someone who shares the same interests/passions as you! I remember the first time I hung out with my best friend, we just went on and on about our love for music. That's when I knew "we're going to be friends." This is just one of the great songs to dedicate to your best friend!
What better song to dedicate than Queen's "You're My Best Friend"?! It just sums up friendship so perfectly. I could swear that this song was the theme song to a popular TV show, but after googling it, turns out I was wrong! Anyways, the lyrics include "You're the best friend that I ever had. I've been with you such a long time. You're my sunshine. And I want you to know, that my feelings are true. I really love you. You're my best friend!" What a great way to show your BFF some love.
This is pretty much the anthem of friendship! If you were big Toy Story lovers as kids, then this song is a great one to dedicate to your best friend. It's basically an awesome way to let her know that no matter what, she'll always have a friend in you. Lyrics include, "You've got a friend in me. You got troubles and I got 'em too. There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you, we stick together, we can see it through. 'Cause you've got a friend in me."
Does this one really need an explanation? It's the theme to "FRIENDS" after all! I know you've jammed out to this song while watching the show, but have you ever really listened to all the lyrics? They include, "No one could ever see me . Seems you're the only one who knows what it's like to be me. Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with. Someone I'll always laugh with. Even at my worst, I'm best with you, Yeah!"
No one expresses their emotions better than Bruno Mars. Send this song to your BFF and let her know that she can count on you no matter what! Lyrics include, "If you ever find yourself in the dark and you can't see, I'll be the light to guide you. Find out what we're made of when we are called to help our friends in need. You can count on me like one two three, I'll be there. And I know when I need it, I can count on you."
If you're a fan of the Golden Girls (I still watch it every night), this song will be familiar to you! I always thought it was such a great song to share with your best friend. Lyrics include, "If you threw a party, invited everyone you knew.. you would see the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say, 'thank you for being a friend."
For a modern song, Cher Lloyd provides one the cutest BFF anthems. The lyrics are super sweet and my bestie has sent me this video! Lyrics include, "Wherever you go, just always remember, that you got a home for now and forever! And if you get low, just call me whenever. This is my oath to you." It's definitely a feel-good song that the two of you can sing to each other!
Nothing screams out girl power/BFFs better than the Spice Girls! Trust me, you'll never get tired of blasting this song and throwing your own dance party together. They're basically the ones that taught us that "friendship never ends". So, thank you, Spice Girls for that important lesson!
I always thought Jason Mraz had a way with words. His song, "Song for a friend" proves it. Lyrics include, "life's too short anyway, but at least it's better then average. As long as you got me, and I got you, you know we'll got a lot to go around. I'll be your friend, your other brother. Another love to come and comfort you. And I'll keep reminding, If it's the only thing I ever do, I will always love, I will always love you."
Like the Spice Girls, nobody knows friendship like a girl group! If you're looking for something a little slower with a bit more meaning, look no further. Even these girls say that they get choked up listening to it and singing it, so why shouldn't you use it to tell your best friend how you feel about her?
A song about sticking by your friends even when things get rough. This beautiful song includes lyrics such as "If this world makes you crazy and you've taken all you can bear you call me up because you know I'll be there." Sometimes your BFF needs a reminder that you're there so send them this song.
The lyrics say it all "lean on me when you're not strong and I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on." This song makes me a little emotional because it reminds me of all the times I've needed a friend or they've needed me. That's what friendships are all about!
Whether you love the movie Grease or not, you can't deny that this song is so much fun to sing along to! Despite how catchy it is, it's also a great song to let your friends know how you feel. It's a super cute song that comes along with a sweet and fun meaning.
There's some debate as to whether this is a song about a friendship or a relationship, but I think that the two are similar enough where this song can be applicable to both. "When the sun shines, we'll shine together, told you I'd be here forever, said I'll always be a friend, took an oath I'ma stick it out 'til the end, now that it's raining more than ever, know that we'll still have each other, you can stand under my umbrella...." Those lyrics say it all!
This short and sweet song about best friends is one of the most famous ones out there! This is a great song about loving your best friend, being proud of who they are, and loving just simple conversations.
Well, there you have it! These are just 15 out of MANY fantastic songs you can dedicate to your BFFs. These are just some of my personal favorites. Which other songs do you think should be on the list? Of the list, which one's your favorite?
