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."


"thank You for Being a Friend"

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."


The Golden Girls was a popular American sitcom that aired from 1985 to 1992. It followed the lives of four elderly women living together in Miami, Florida. One of the show's most iconic characters was Dorothy Zbornak, played by Bea Arthur, whose catchphrase was "Thank you for being a friend".

The show's theme song, "Thank You for Being a Friend", was written by composer Andrew Gold. It was released as a single in 1978 and reached No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song has since become a classic and is often used to express gratitude to friends.

The lyrics of the song are perfect for showing appreciation to your best friend. It talks of throwing a party and inviting everyone you know, and the biggest gift being from you with a card that says "thank you for being a friend".

The song has been covered by many artists over the years, including Cynthia Fee, Barenaked Ladies, and Boy Meets Girl. It was also featured in the popular film The Princess Diaries and the popular TV series Friends.



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!


Cher Lloyd's "Oath" is about the unbreakable bond between friends. The music, peppy and upbeat, pairs flawlessly with the reassuring lyrics, celebrating a friendship that stands the test of time. It's the kind of track that fills you with warmth every time you hit play, a musical promise that you'll be there for each other, rain or shine. So, when life gets rough and you need to be reminded of your support system, just hit play and let the melody take you to your happy place with your best friend by your side.



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!


"song for a Friend"

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."


"always Be Together"

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?


"true Colors"

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 iconic tune, performed by Cyndi Lauper, exudes the warmth of unwavering support and unconditional acceptance. Perfect when your bestie needs to be reminded of their unique brilliance, especially during moments of self-doubt. The message woven throughout 'True Colors' is one of hope and solidarity—making it a timeless anthem for friendship. It's a heartwarming choice when you want to convey, "I see you, and I'm here for you"—a musical hug for your friend's soul.


"lean on Me"

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!


"we Go Together"

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!


"best Friend"

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?
