Trad. "I've Got a Friend Above All Others" ("His love is so far beyond a mother'...", rec. by Soul Stirrers w/Sam Cooke
Probably the weirdest Judy Garland recording I've ever encountered. I heard this on Dr. Demento back in the early 70s...and my mother walked by my room and started singing along. Evidently that stuck with me as when I saw the thread title, it was the first thing that popped into my head.
I really can't stomach much Sandler in a movie. But, that's a nice tribute and Farley would appreciate the style.
Thank you for posting this!
I hadn't thought about Life By The Drop in many years, I used to play and sing it too. It can be emotional playing it... Stevie had such an impact on me. This is one of his finest songs.
True. The only conclusion is not to believe anything lasts forever. Because nothing does. Especially friendships, relationships, etc., aside from rare cases. I've never had the pleasure of rare.
Does this count? It's about screwing over a friend. Although, it seemed to work out here.
"They were all my friends...and they died."
And another one from Bill Withers. He was so good. And his band cooks.
You're most welcome
It's not really a song about friendship, but with that opening line, I thought I could get away with it!
A beautiful song for sure.
I can't believe we made it to page three before this made the list. The groove is just so good, and whoever played drums on this track was having a really good day.
I don't think a song that starts with "You've got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend" would necessarily qualify in a thread about friendship songs.
It's still a song about friendship, just not a good or real friendship.
From Hank Williams, "I'm Sorry For You, My Friend",
and Don Williams, "You're My Best Friend".
Can't think of any others at the moment.
Here's one of my own, the lyrics are addressing the guy who used to be my best friend since 6'th grade but who has done so much stuff behind my back. He was the lead singer in my very first band which was called The No Problem Kids.
The song is about our dying friendship and how the only way that he and I will become friends again is when our old band will reunite, which is a metaphor, it'll never happen.
Not a HAPPY song about friendship, mind you...
