A strong bond of friendship develops when you understand each other. The best times in life are spent in the company of friends. All the crazy things wouldn’t be that crazy if not done with friends. Indeed, the best moments in life are incomplete without friends. We often take friends for granted, and while friends may not mind that, it is important to show friends how much they really mean to you. While there are many ways to express your feelings towards your friends, the best way to melt hearts is with songs. A meaningful way to convey and express your love for friends is with song dedications. When you dedicate songs to your friends it makes them feel special.


What Songs Should I Dedicate to Friends

Informal works best with friends. You do not have to be politically correct with your approach when you dedicate songs to your friends. A great time to dedicate songs to your friends is at parties. When friends are partying the vibe is at another level. Be it a house party, a party at a nightclub, a party at a farmhouse where friends are hanging out together, or any occasion that has friends, you just need to be yourself and dedicate songs that are thoughtful and evoke special sentiments among friends. Songs express varied emotions lyrically and musically. If you want to convey a message of love and gratitude make sure you pick songs that awaken feelings and lyrically paint a picture. If you plan on getting your friends pumped with powerful emotions it’s wise to choose songs that pack a punch with groove and hard-hitting lyrics.


How To Dedicate Songs To Friends

There are different ways to dedicate songs to your friends. It depends on where and how you want to dedicate songs to your friends. The lines below will give you ideas on how to dedicate thoughtful songs to your friends in accordance with the place and situation.

Dedicating Songs At House Parties

Dedicating songs at a house party is a whole lot fun. Song dedications add friendly fervor at house parties and are a great way to express what you feel about your friends. You can dedicate a special song for every friend present at the house party. While playing a song say a little something about your friend, it makes the moment special when you say words of praise and love about your friend.


Dedicating Songs At Nightclubs

If you are partying with your friends at a nightclub you need to have a quiet word with the DJ to get your song played. The in-house DJ at nightclubs is rather approachable, and so smooth-talking your way into getting your song played for your friends should be easy. If you are a smooth talker with exceptional convincing skills you can earn few minutes with the mike. However, if you feel nervous speaking on a mike in front of a crowd, it’s best to write your words clearly on a paper napkin and let the DJ make the announcement before playing your song request.

Dedicating Songs At Graduation Parties

Graduation parties bring about mixed emotions in friends. When the feeling about friends moving to new places after graduating finally sinks in, it does bring about an emotional turnaround in you. While graduation parties are all about laughs and having fun, they are also symbolic of bidding farewell to friends. Songs that evoke an emotional response and have a thoughtful message are popular at graduation parties. At graduation parties you can play songs that represent graduation, friendship and parting ways.

Dedicating Songs at Camping Parties

It’s an exhilarating feeling when you are camping with your group of friends. Camping is an outdoor activity that brings about a carefree vibe. Staying up in tents at night and having music play is a great way to relax and unwind. At camping parties individuals love to get naughty with their song selection. At camp sites, songs that tease in a friendly manner are popular. While you can play your song dedications on your smartphone, the entire experience of playing songs on a portable bluetooth speaker in the dead of the night is ethereal.

Dedicating Songs for Friends Far Away From You

There’s always a friend or two that are far away from you. When you miss your friends that are in a far-away country, give them a call and get a song playing loud in the background. Do not hesitate to sing along as the song plays. The song you play should bring back memories of the good times you guys have had.


Dedicating Songs At Memorial Parties

Memorial parties are held to remember the person that has passed away. Memorial parties often evoke an emotional response among friends and family of the person that has passed away. If you want to dedicate a song at a memorial party, make sure you pick songs that bring to life cherished memories of your friend. Individuals at memorial parties are likely to get teary-eyed when a song expresses deep emotion.

Keep in mind when you dedicate songs to your friends you are not trying to impress them but only being thankful and happy that they are an integral part of your life. You and your friends know each other best. Say what’s in your heart with songs you dedicate to friends.
