‘I’ll Be There For You’, 1995

Thanks to its use as the theme tune to the mid-1990s (and then some) hit US comedy TV show Friends, ‘I’ll Be There For You’ is probably known to everyone on the planet over the age of 10. Initially, the song was written to fill the TV show’s opening credits, but as demand for a hit single grew, The Rembrandts – who had enjoyed moderate success before penning the song – had to create a full-length single out of it. Their last album, Lost Together, came out in 2001, though most are content with the couple of minutes it takes for the Friends’ opening credits to end.
