Six Songs to Celebrate Friendship
God bestowed us with the gift of friendship for all the times when He knew he couldn't be there with us. He divided them in three categories-best, guest and pest friends. All friends are not faithful but at the same time neither are all traitors like Brutus. It is upon one's own discretion who one considers a true friend and who one does not.

A memory lasts forever.
Never does it die.
True friends stay together.
And never say goodbye.

Friendship is based on truth and loyalty. It is one's unbiased faith in the other's unconditional love and belief to stand by. Here are ten songs that celebrate different aspects of friendship.

1. I'll Be There For You - The Rembrandts:

'No one could ever know me
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'.

This song hit the charts as the soundtrack of the celebrated series on friendship, 'Friends'. Released in the year 1994 as their jingle, the song was later released as a single after being made into a full song owing to its sudden popularity.

6. Photograph - Ringo Starr and George Harrison

'I can't get used to living here
While my heart is broke, my tears are cried for you
I want you here to have and hold
As the years go by, and we grow old and gray
Now you're expecting me
To live without you
But that's not something
That I'm looking forward to
I can't get used to...'

Originally written by both of them, the song was released as part of Ringo Starr's album, Ringo. Later it was performed at Harrison's first death anniversary and is said to have made the audience weep at large.
Ringo and George, John and Annie, 'Friends'-the sitcom, all celebrate the friendship season, which actually is all year round! Friendship is about sharing the ups and downs, smiles and frowns, pains and pleasures; simply put being companions, now and forever... Here's to celebrating true friendship!
