When the rain starts to pour: 30-Day Song Challenge, the Sequel, day 15 – a song that reminds you of your best friend

Sweet hell, what was I thinking when I came up with this entry I mean, it isn’t that I can’t think of songs, it’s just that there are several people I consider best friends: people who have been close to me at various points in my life, people I have relied on, shared good times, survived the bad. People whose commitment to ing me as I am has shaped me, improved me, and perhaps even saved me, because the truth is that there have been some very, very dark nights in my life.

I guess I could come up with a song that reminds me of each one, but we might be here awhile trying to do them all justice. So instead, let’s dedicate this one to all of them. I know this song is, and will always be, inextricably bound up with a sitcom, but before you ever heard of Ross & Rachel, Phoebe, Joey, Monica and Ms. Chanandler Bong, there was this really, really good band called The Rembrandts that deserved to be known for more than one song. Although, no matter how you feel about the show, it’s a great song to be known for.

So, to all my best friends, I’ll be there for you, and thank you for being there for me, more times than I can possibly remember.
