Song for a friend

Recommended Posts

I'm making a cd for a good friend...need a few more songs to fill it up. Can you help me think of good friend tunes--not too mushy. I'm a married woman, he is a good friend I had b4 I married so no romance type songs. Thanks in advance for the help!! :)

How about Friends by Elton John:

I hope the day will be a lighter highway

For friends are found on every road

Can you ever think of any better way

For the lost and weary travellers to go

Making friends for the world to see

Let the people know you got what you need

With a friend at hand you will see the light

If your friends are there then everything's all right

It seems to me a crime that we should age

These fragile times should never slip us by

A time you never can or shall erase

As friends together watch their childhood fly

repeat verse two

Hi littlel30......There are so many songs about friendships, both intimate and social. Here are a few that I came up with:

You've Got A Friend - Carole King (or James Taylor)

I'll Be There - Michael Jackson

Oh How The Years Go By - Amy Grant

Stand By Me - Ben E. King

Whenever I Call You Friend - Kenny Loggins

My Friend - Blessed Union Of Souls

Any Time You Need A Friend - Mariah Carey

I Will Be Your Friend - Amy Grant

Lean On Me - Bill Withers

It's obvious. It's cheesy. How about "I'll Be There For You" by the Rembrandts and "That's What Friends Are For" by Elton John, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder (I think that is all of them).

"In my life", Beatles. I know, it can also be about love but anyways, if I was to make a compilation for my best friend -just a friend since we were young, I´m a maried woman too- I would add that song.

Kind of an obscure (but just dynamite) ballad by a Canadian singer/poet "These Friends Of Mine" - Ian Tyson

You may recite/record one of my poems if you wish:

Forks In The Road

We met early on a Monday; by Friday we were friends

Neither one suspecting that that week would never end

Bound by road forks we chose or built together

Exploring with a faith that love grows shared forever

Longtime friend, true chum, a mate, my brother

Whatever friendship offers - found within the other

Sharing better natures, aimed by that yet shared

Quiet when required; listening whispers, “Cared.â€

Never fearing experience nor dependencies allowed

In resilient terms, with bonds of steel, devoted and avowed

Thank you, friend, for lessons learned by staying to that road

And as the trail winds to its peak, your back that shared my load.

And I have to say also whenever I hear Creed's My Sacrifice it reminds me of a friend I had in high school. We drifted apart through no one's fault but time and if I ever got a hold of his email addy or postal address I'd send the song to him. Check that one out too. :)
