Singalong! I'll Be There for You by The Remembrandts

I just moved into a new place and went through a few harrowing days without internet.  Since my go-to background noise while puttering around the house (or, say, slogging through the incessant job of unpacking and setting up a home) is streaming some kind of TV show on Netflix, I had to revert to the olden days and crack open a DVD box set.  Luckily I have an old enough laptop that it has a DVD drive and never got rid of my DVDs!  I launched in with Friends and just watched Ross and Rachel finally get together for the first(ish) time and have been listening to the Rememrandts intro song a lot.  It's actually pretty solid!  The lyrics are lovely and uplifting and perfectly captures the weird reality of suddenly being old enough to be an adult but not feeling adult at all.  Plus, it's always funny to listen to a song made famous off a TV show and then get all weirded out when they go into the second verse.


I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU
by The Remembrandts

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

You're still in bed at ten and work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast, so far things are going great
Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
But she didn't tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees and

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

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!

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)
