I have good friends, scattered across the globe: throughout Cali’s big cities, in New York, Texas, Japan, Philippines and beyond. Though I wish I could see them more often (and even though I’m really bad at keeping contact with them), when we do finally get a chance to catch up with each other, we always pick right up from where we left off. I’m not one who throws around the term “friend” loosely though. I’m definitely no socialite who hangs out in places where everybody knows my name. “Quality, not quantity” is best when it comes to friendships, as my mother always told me.
The chorus on this song gets stuck in my head every once in a while; Today is one of those days. Unlike what usually happens with solo projects, Darkel—one half of the synthpop French Duo, Air—has created a sound that is pretty much identical with the style that he creates with his peer. Be My Friend could very well be put on an Air album and no one would be the wiser. And that’s not a bad thing.
