You’ve got a friend by Stacey Kent

In this gloomy season, it seems that people around us are so blue. What do you feel lately? Are you feeling down and need someone to be at your side? Wouldn’t it be nice if you found that you’ve got a friend at this time?

This song is sweet. Check it out:

Oh… I can remenber this song. This song you have played to us in F1A =D. I think this version is quite soft. This song talk about when you need a friend,just call her/ his name, your friend will help you and solve the problems. I think this is a good song to describe my friends and me.

I think the condition of this song is very quiet. The song likes going to tell us a secret. I like this kind of melody. It is very nice. 
In the lyrics, it said that when we down and troubled, we need a helping hand. That helping hand is our friends. I think friendship is anything. Friends will always support and help with each other. If we call our friends for chat or help, they will come at once.
For me, friends are really cannot miss in my life. Without it, my life will become boring and insipid.
Will you be my friend? πŸ˜‰

When I heard this song, I remember my β€˜best’ friend in primary school. We have many differences. I have short hair but hers is long. I am passive and quite but she is energetic. Her skin is dark but mine is light…

When I was a primary student, I was extremely timid and seldom talked with others. One day I needed colour pencils during a lesson. All of my group mates had got ones except me. I did not ask anyone but she shared her colour pencils with me generously. Then she became my first friend in primary school.

However, when we were promoted to upper grade, we had more arguments. For examples, she wanted me to wait for her for β€˜each’ question when we were doing homework (I usually didn’t do so as she did very slowly). Besides, I could not stay in other groups since she would push me away.

Other classmates did not like her for her bad manners. They even asked me why I could tolerate her. Anyway, I was influenced by them and started to keep her at a distance. We had severed our friendship for tiny incidents at least four times! However, every time she said sorry to me first and we became friends again.

Actually, she β€˜is’ a good friend. She helped me to ask teachers questions; she did not play at recess but did homework with me (I didn’t ask her to do so); she lent me a lot of stationery; she gave me useful birthday gifts as she knew that I was stingy ( XD ).
The most touching action is that she always says sorry first no matter who is wrong.

I feel great shame at ignoring her feeling! I did not do what a friend should do – be her side whenever she is blue! I have never told her my thought as well.

Luckily, we are still friends. She calls on me frequently. I hope that she will meet a lot of friends in her school.

It is song with slow melody, isn’t match with the weather of these days? Talk with our friends is really a way to express you bored feelings, worries or plan for you future. I believe most of the friends would support you to make you dreams become true.
After I was promoted to Form Two, I have found that one’s force cannot complete his job because we need to communicate and cooperate with our classmates. (Mr. To has talked about this for at least two times in Liberal Studies lessons, right?) During this time, we often have different opinions on them. Then day by day you would have a conclusion that he or she is your friend or not. If yes, you may find she or she is kind. I think friends need to keep the relationship with us by kindness. The most important is listen.

When I heard about this song, I felt depressed. Then I listened to it carefully and found that the lyrics are meaningful. No matter what you are facing(happy or upset)there is always someone who you can share your feelings and thoughts. That is your true friend. I will search this song when I sing karaoke with my real friend. It must be a sweet and lovely experience! This is a touching song due to the blue melody and the great lyrics.

Comment by 2c 29 Chloe

The song so slow.When I listen this song, I feel sad and down. I wany some friends to make me happy.

Comment by Jacky Huen

Zz… This song was so soft. I suppose when you are working, you should listhen another hard song. And you can listen this music when you sleep not well. =]

Comment by Emily Chiu___1D 12

The title of this song is β€˜β€™You’ve got a friend”. When I was hearing this song, I think of my friends in class. I think the lyrics of the song is meaningful. The melody is slow, it makes me feel comfortable.

Comment by Leung Ka Man,Carmen

I think this video is very toughing. It is because when a person has a friend beside him or her, it is the beginning of lucky things!!
When we got a friend, we will also feel stable because we have someone to support us!!!

Comment by Pang Wing Yi 1D 28

I think the different between Hong Kong singers and the other countries singers is the other coutries singers,they ere very enjoy in their singing,and so that we can listen the feeling of the songs easily.Just like this song,i think very soft.It makes me enjoy in my dream.

Comment by jackyliu

I do not like this song. It makes me want to sleep. And I do not like this kind of style.

Comment by Tommy CHeng 1D(6)

This song really can touch people. A friend which can help you, comfort you anytime. You can just call his or her name, and he will come in front of you as soon as possible. How great is he or she are? A friend is not a toy, you cannot play it when you like and throw it when you dislike it. A friend can help you all the time and you must try your best to help your friend too! This is what friends are, you would help each other, you would share happiness, sadness to each other, you love each other…
