Chances are you're really missing your friends lately given *gesticulates wildly* everything that's going on. All of the highly-anticipated summer get-togethers and vacation plans have gone straight out the window and are now rescheduled for, uhhhh, 2027. And it's been tough to keep in touch with your crew—a gal can only have so many Zoom happy hours in one day!Because of all this nonsense, what better time to celebrate your friendships with a kickass playlist of the best BFF-inspired songs the music world has to offer.

If one thing in life is certain (ha ha ha remember when the world was a stable place?!) it's that your truest friends will always be there for you no matter what. To listen to you at 1 a.m when you're going through it or to make you laugh until you're crying so hard you can't see. So the next time you’re missing your bestie, throw on one of the songs below. Hey, if you want to schedule a weekly virtual dance party with your crew set to this playlist, I fully support that too!
