It is here!!! The most relatable and world-wide celebrated day is today. And you know what, it is even more adorable than Valentine’s Day. Why? Because as likely as one is miserably single on 14 Feb, it is hardly the case one is entirely friendless on the first Sunday of August or any other day of the year, for that matter. That’s what makes Friendship Day extra special. We all have that one geeky, cheeky weirdo we can call friend or any other offensive name. (You know they can take it!) So let’s get grooving to this amazing day with some cool songs, shall we?

1. Friend’s Theme Song

Really, nothing says I’m your friend more than ‘I’ll be there for you’. The thought hits right home. The song’s peppy, tuny, and as right as rain. And to be honest, there’s no other day better than today for starting another re-run of Friends.

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)

2. Yaaron from KK

Friendship at the college level is something else. And this melodious song in the soothing voice of KK has us humming along on this number on loop in no time.

Yaaron dosti, badi hi haseen hai
Ye na ho toh, kya phir
Bolo ye zindagi hai
Koi toh, ho raazdaar
Begaraz tera ho yaar
Koi toh, ho raazdaar…

3. Dil Chahta Hai

Now, who doesn’t dream of going on a long road trip with their ‘young and reckless’ friends? And this song is curated with exactly those feels in mind. BTW no, that photo was not 3D. It was actually a pic of 3 good friends.

Dil chahta hai, kabhi na beete chamkile din…
Dil chahta hai, hum na rahein kabhi yaaron ke bin

Din din bhar ho pyari baatein, jhumein shaamein, gaaye raatein
Masti mein rahey duba duba hamesha samaa…

Humko raahon mein yuhin milti rahey khushiyan

Dil chahta hai, kabhi na beete chamkile din
Dil chahta hai, hum na rahein kabhi yaaron ke bin…

4. Jaane Kyun from Dostana

Well, if your friends aren’t exactly making you feel ‘I’ll be alright’ or urging you to do fun things that will get you into trouble, then there’s something wrong. Thanks to these always upbeat numbers, we know where to keep our bars, and that is high.

Thu hai Tho Thedi medi rahein
Ulti pulti bhatein
Seedhi lagti hai

Thu hai tho jhoothe muteh vaadein
Dushman ke iraade
Sacche Lagtein Hain

Jho dil mein taare vaare dhe jaga
Woh thu hi hai Thu hi hai
Jho roote roote dhe hasa
Thu hi hai wohi

Jaane kyun Jaane kyun dil jaanta hai
Thu hai tho I’ ll be all right
I’ ll be all right, I’ ll be all right

5. Tera Yaar Hoon Mai from Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

Arijit Singh can surely hit a chord or two of hearts when it comes to love songs. But what about friendship’s songs? Well, he does even better there.

Toota hai toh juda hai kyun
Meri taraf tu muda hai kyun
Haq nahi tu yeh kahe ki yaar ab hum na rahe
Ek teri yaari ka hi
Saaton janam haqdaar hoon main
Tera yaar hoon main…
Tera yaar hoon main…
Tera yaar hoon main…
Tera yaar hoon main…

6. Hai Junoon from New York

Another classic gem from KK! Ever thought of changing the world (or maybe just starting a new book club) with your friends? If yes, this song is got to be in your playlists today.

Yaaro jee bhar ke jee le pal
Lagta hai aaj kal
Daur apna aayega

Yaaro jo khud pe ho yakeen
Toh zindagi haseen
Tujhe kal bulayega

Hai junoon oooooonnnnn
Hai junoon sa jeene mein

Friends will never be like new trends
Not someone to whom roses I’ll send
But if I’m nursing a broken heart
I know who to turn to for the mend
