Songs of the Week

“You’re My Best Friend (and I Love You)”

“You’re My Best Friend, and I Love You” (© 2020 John Charles Weston). This song took a little while to come to full fruition. Initially it was a reaction against the hatred I saw coming from critics of Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death. I thought that a good alternative to this cruel, ill-informed hatred would be to say, “You’re My Best Friend, and I Love You.” Not to anyone in particular, just to everyone.

After writing the hook I shelved the song for several weeks. I returned to it mid-July and completed it. Enjoy.
