With Stevie Wonder on the harmonica, Elton John on the piano, and the distinctive melodic voices of Dionne Warwick and Gladys Knight, without question – what an unforgettable quartet who lent their musical talents for a great philanthropic cause! Most of us know the “words by heart.” The question is not whether we can sing from memory the 1985 tune, “That’s What Friend Are For.” The real question is whether we can live up to the words! Hmmm … that precept should give you something to think about! And the below lyrics are just the chorus!
“Keep smilin’ keep shinin’
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That’s what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
That’s what friends are for.”
How many friends do you have that fit that bill? Are you that type of friend? Singing the song is great! It’s music to our ears! Living the words is the challenge …. be the times good or bad!
Of course, the superstars can sing the heartfelt lyrics harmonically better than I can say the words.
Take a look … Listen up!
