This is an oldie made in 1982 by Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley but it was popularized by the movie Wings in 1988.
I thought this song was made by Bette Midler, but it’s not, it’s just the most popular version because it was made into a hit single for the movie beaches.
Maybe the song inspired the movie, the movie itself is all about two women who bond over the years, so different yet remain true to their friendship. Everyone wants a long lasting friendship that they had in the movie. At the end though, one of the two women die and Bette Midler is left to “fend for herself.”
The song is not just for movies, it transcends. It’s a song that lifts your spirit because of your personal connections to other people, it reminds you of your humanity and the love you share for your close ones.
Even if you don’t have close ones, you still could have your pets as your best friends; indeed, your pets oftentimes become closer to you because they are forever your babies, your pets if they could talk would sing this to their owners.
So lift your spirit today and listen to a song that just seems to calm me down for some crazy reason!
