18 Songs About Friendship & Memories With Friends


Our friends are our chosen family. They’re the people we choose to have by our side, playing a massive role in shaping us as individuals and being our pillar of support as we grow into adulthood and beyond.

Creating a playlist of songs about friendship is a great way to remind yourself how much your friends mean to you. It also makes for a heartfelt mixtape to let your friends know their importance in your life.

When making a playlist of songs about friendship, keep in mind that our song suggestions are just a starting point. If there are songs that hold personal significance to you, include those as well.

With so many songs out there, narrowing it down to just 10 or 20 can be a challenge. Which songs to choose? Which ones fit best? Luckily for you, we’ve curated a list of 18 beautiful songs about friendship and memories with friends.

  1. With a Little Help from My Friends (The Beatles) While it’s important to stay strong when you’re alone, always remember that your friends will be there for you. As the title suggests, this song is about relying on your friends during tough times. Ringo’s role in the song is particularly memorable.
  2. Never Gonna Give You Up (Rick Astley) This song remains popular due to the infamous Rick Roll meme. (No, this isn’t a Rick Roll; we genuinely recommend the song.) As the title suggests, it’s about never giving up on the people you love.
