The Power of Friendship is one of the strongest things in the world. Sometimes, however, it's not enough. What's the best way to really capitalize on a friendship? Break out in song about it, of course.

This is essentially a song that explains about the how the friendship between two or more characters keeps them together and never lets them fall apart.

This may be a Sidekick Song. Compare Silly Love Song.

  • In Axis Powers Hetalia, we have England's song "My Friend", in which England talks about his friends Brownie, Pixy and the Unicorn (England has been shown in a couple of episodes talking with his imaginary friends).

  • In The Brady Bunch during one of the show's many Talent Show episodes, Marcia & her mother sing "Together" from Gypsy as a pair of hobos who stick together through thick and thin.
  • Saved by the Bell: In a Behind The Music-like episode showing the formation, success, breakup, and reuniting of the gang's band Zack Attack, their big hit is called "Friends Forever."
    We'll be friends forver
    'til the end of time

Theatre
  • Anything Goes gives us "Friendship."
    It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
    When other friendships are soon forgot, ours will still be hot.
  • Wicked: Before Stephen Schwartz wrote the song "For Good", he asked his daughter what she would say to her best friend if she were saying goodbye to her forever. Her response became the first verse of the song.

    Sonic Heroes
    Sonic Heroes
    What you can't find you can find in your friends.
    • There's also Team Sonic's theme song "We Can", centered around the teamwork of Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles:
      Together, we can, overcome all the odds
      It's never as hard as it seems
      Everyone can do something special
      The secret is sharing our dreams

Western Animation

Real Life
