I love Me And My Friends because the intro sounds like Nintendo Wii music. It’s a fun song with nice harmonies and when the chorus come in it has a marching band feel. It’s a song that will always make me happy. I know that TikTok is pretty indiscriminate in its music choices but I feel like if it came out today it would be massive on the app. That’s a really interesting concept to me – that music can be made and miss a window of opportunity for massive success. But maybe it’s for the best for the listener that Me And My Friends isn’t part of a viral trend. That way every time I hear it, it still feels like a little treat.
