Throwback Thursday: The Rembrandts – I’ll Be There For You

Back in 1994, a new sitcom debuted. This sitcom was so successful it pulled off a 10-year run. This TV show just happens to be my all time favourite: Friends.
 
We all know the theme song… “I’ll be there for you, ‘cause you’re there for me toooooooooo.” But I bet you haven’t actually listened to the full song. Yeah, that’s right. There’s a 3:09 long version of it.
 
“I’ll Be There for You” by The Rembrandts was co-written by Marta Kauffman and David Crane, the creators of Friends. The song debuted with the TV show in 1994 as its theme song, but wasn’t released as a single for radio until 1995.
 
Fun fact, During most of the 90s, the Billboard Hot 100 was only allowed to chart songs that were made available for purchase. Because of this, many mainstream hits never made the cut. “I’ll Be There For You” was one of those songs – it stayed number one on the Hot 100 Airplay chart (songs with the most airplay) for eight weeks straight until it became an official single, at which point it managed to rank #17 on the Hot 100.
 
Here’s the FULL version of “I’ll Be There For you” by The Rembrandts. Enjoy the official music video –  it features some very special appearances!
