1 The Rembrandts – I’ll Be There For You
The TV show was called Friends – need we say more?

2 The Spice Girls – Wannabe
Love doesn’t last but thankfully the coolest girl group of all time reminds us that “friendship never ends”. Perfect for Friday night scream-alongs in the car.

3 Kanye West feat. Big Sean and Jay-Z – Clique
Your squad is probably somewhat less fresh than Ye’s G.O.O.D. Music mates – Travi$ Scott, Pusha-T, Yasiin Bey, Big Sean and so on – but that’s okay: His clique implores you to blast this banger with your minimally famous friends, nonetheless.

4 Weezer – My Best Friend
“You are my best friend/and I love you, and I love you/Yes I do” – you can always count on Rivers Cuomo to keep it simple.

5 The Turtles – Happy Together
This hyper-gleeful ’67 hit is nothing short of sickeningly sweet, the musical equivalent of witnessing an overly happy family having fun at the park.

6 Drake – Started from the Bottom
Drake’s anthem is about bringing his whole team with him on the way up. Aubrey’s been a mensch from day one.

7 Francis and the Lights – Friends
Francis Starlite collaborates with pal Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) for this pro-friend tune. Look up the video to see the cute synchronised dance they worked out (while friend #3 Kanye West stands off the side).

8 Pharrell Williams – Best Friend
The Neptunes member is solo on In My Mind but as he recounts here, it’s his friends that helped him get to where he is.

9 Everything But the Girl – Old Friends
Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt’s moment of remembrance for friendships maintained and friendships lost over the years is a bittersweet bite of nostalgia.

10 The Beach Boys – Friends
The album of the same name might have fared the worst in the charts for them, but who needs record sales when you have the unquantifiable value of friendship.
