U is for Umbrella by Rhianna



I love the son Umbrella by Rihanna. A song about sticking together through the rough times.

Because when the sun shines, we'll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out to the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
RIHANNA - UMBRELLA LYRICS 

The song reminds me of the kind of support that only good friends and family can give. A good friend is always on your side, no matter how stupid or irrational you are being. She’ll agree with you and then she’ll talk you back down to rational. And she is always on your side. Always! It’s just what good friends do. When it’s raining she’ll share her umbrella, bitching at you the whole time because you were the dumb ass who didn’t bring an umbrella after she told you it was going to rain.
    I’m sending out a huge shout out to all of my friends who have supported me in my life, past and present.  Especially to the ones who refused to shake loose even after my transatlantic journey. Thanks for sharing your umbrella when I needed it. No names will be mentioned, you all know who you are.
Friendship rocks!

Is there a song that helps represent how you feel about your good friends?

  1. Such a nice thought. True friends are extremely hard to find especially the kind that you mentioned here. My personal favorite is the Friends Jingle!

    1. Well said Lynda. Ironically there was an A to Z blog that wrote about treasures and when she asked what our treasure was, friends was one of my answers.

  3. I love this song but I've never really paid too much attention to the words until reading them on your blog. Now I have little sparks going off in my head and a couple of characters are being created in there, so thank you.

  4. Good song. My friends and I have shared many, many songs over the years, at the moment I cant think of one that stands out. Except I remember when we were all turning 18, and Alice Coopers song 18 was our theme song at the time.
