This Gorgeous & Unexpected Cover Of The 'Friends' TV Theme Song Might Leave You In Tears

I would've never in a million years or Cher's lifetime thought that the jangly-guitar uber 90s Rembrandts tune "I'll Be There For You" might leave my eyes welling with tears. Well, thanks to three Irish musicians, Glenn Murphy, Oisin O'Callaghan and Ronan Scolard, one of the best-known TV theme songs (if not THE best-known TV theme song) gets turned on its head. Here, instead of upbeat optimism, Murphy, O'Callaghan and Scolard share a gorgeous song full of penetrating yearning that risks leaving even the most hardened of 90s TV fans in tears. 

What do you think of the Friends theme cover? Does it make me a sadist if I request this exact version to be played at my funeral?

@ Kevin and Dale - life is not perfect but coming straight from the heart makes it more than perfect...   It makes it beautiful!!

Awesome!

The lyric is 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 that

 

Beautiful!! I want your CD if you have one! Love it!

Wonderful!!!

i think it's really sweet... will it make it to the i-tunes chart, maybe not.

It was a waste of 2 minutes and 11 seconds in my opinion. But way to go guys. Practice practice practice.   

Love it!

Are you kidding????? 

Was not impressed. Funny how you all think this was awesome... Really??? 

It's so pretty!!!

now if they would cover 'thank you for being a friend' from the golden girls in the same melancholic way...
 

WOW!

I love it :)
