Song Description

Featuring Ms. Harley Sumabat on lead and backing vocals. Hi-energy Pop/Dance track inspired by Katy Perry, Jessie J and Cyndi Lauper, with a hint of Weird Al thrown in. Sweet and innocent with a touch of humor and an ever-unfolding story line. Synth-Pop based, but plenty of guitar and drums to rock it up a little.

Story Behind the Song

We all have that 1 friend who is a little too EVERYTHING, and sometimes they just need to be reeled in and reminded that you still love them no matter who they are.

Broadjam Member Reviews

What a great track - as good as anything you hear on the radio. Great vocals and instrumentation.
Watch out Katy Perry Taylor Swift e al.

Top marks for this !

    - Laurence Watkins

I like the immediate impact made by the intro. Nice change at 0.46. I like the lead vocal and the use of backing vocals - great singing performance. Nice little instrumental bridges between the sections. Very strong and entertaining lyrics. A really tight sound. Great sound quality. Broadcast quality Really well mastered.

Lyrics

Friday night you love to Karaoke.
The doors open and your first in line.
You do Sinatra, Eminem or Smokey.
Next thing you know everybody's dyin'!
You prob'ly think they're all laughing with you,
but let me tell you, it's not that way.
They're countin' down the seconds 'til it's over,
so as a friend I've got to say:

Friends don't let friends drive everyone crazy.
Your rap is crap & you just can't sing.
You think you're Usher, Pharrell or even Jay Z,
but let's be honest - it's not your thing.

Saturdays you're always on the dance floor,
shake 'n bakin' everything you've got.
You only miss a step or 2 or 50
and all the girls wish that you'd just stop!
Maybe you need another shot of courage
to get back out and blow them away,
but no amount of liquor's gonna give you rhythm,
so as a friend I've got to say:

Friends don't let friends drive everyone crazy.
You think you're smooth but you've got no swing.
You're Dirty Dancin', but nothing like Swayze,
so let's be honest - it's not your thing.

Anytime I see you at a party,
you're tellin' stories to impress the crowd.
You make yourself the center of attention,
but they all see you as just too loud!
You try so hard to steer the conversation,
but all your jokes are so passé.
Everybody's looking at their watches,
so as a friend I've got to say:

Friends don't let friends drive everyone crazy.
You strut around like some kind of king,
but you don't need to be anybody's punch line.
Just BE YOURSELF and do your thing.
Friends don't let friends drive everyone crazy. Oooooooh.
Friends don't let friends drive everyone crazy. Oooooooh.

Inspired by Katy Perry, this lyric video also has a touch of Jessie J, Cyndi Lauper and Weird Al. It's about that ONE FRIEND we all have who is a little too loud, a little too over-the-top, maybe even slightly irritating at times, but you can always take him aside and remind him to keep it real. Sweet and innocent friendship, this features Harley Sumabat on lead and some backing vocals.
