This is my favorite track off of ''A Kind of Magic'', and one of my few songs ranked as a 10. Brian's soaring guitar riffs really add to the positive vibe despite the sad theme of the lyrics, and Freddie's vocals are superbly powerful. Although the lyrics are very simple--bad things happen, but your friends will help you out--the song is just so damned positive that I can't help but love it.

Single cover.

Friends Will Be Friends is a Queen song. The music was composed by John Deacon and Freddie Mercury, the lyrics were written by Mercury and he also performed the vocals. It was originally released on the album A Kind of Magic on 1986-06-03 and released as a single three days later.

The original single was released with the vocal version of Seven Seas of Rhye as the B-side, which I think was a bad choice since the song was released over 10 years prior on a studio album. Not exactly a difficult song to find. Later in 1986, an extended remix was released with a six-minute long version of the song (which I haven't yet heard). Outside of English speaking countries, the single was sometimes released with a B-side of Gimme The Prize (Kurgan's Theme), A Kind of Magic, or One Year of Love, all of which were available on the main album.

This is my favorite track off of A Kind of Magic, and one of my few songs ranked as a 10. Brian's soaring guitar riffs really add to the positive vibe despite the sad theme of the lyrics, and Freddie's vocals are superbly powerful. Although the lyrics are very simple--bad things happen, but your friends will help you out--the song is just so damned positive that I can't help but love it.

Lyrics

Another red letter day.
So the pound has dropped and the children are creating.
The other half ran away,
Taking all the cash and leaving you with the lumber.
Got a pain in the chest,
Doctor's on strike, what you need is a rest.

It's not easy love, but you've got friends you can trust.
Friends will be friends.
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention.
Friends will be friends.
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hands, cuz friends will be friends right till the end.

Now it's a beautiful day.
The postman delivered a letter from your lover.
Only a phone call away.
You tried to track him down, but somebody stole his number.
As a matter of fact
You're getting used to life without him in your way.

It's so easy love, cuz you got friends you can trust.
Friends will be friends.
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention.
Friends will be friends.
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hands cuz friends will be friends right till the end.

It's so easy love, cuz you got friends you can trust.
Friends will be friends.
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention.
Friends will be friends.
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hands cuz friends will be friends right til the end.

Friends will be friends.
When you're in need of love they give you care and attention.
Friends will be friends.
When you're through with life and all hope is lost,
Hold out your hands cuz right till the end-
Friends will be friends.
