Andrew Gold: Thank You For Being A Friend

In keeping our Thanksgiving theme this week, our TV Thursday song is the theme from the popular TV show of the 80s and 90s – the Golden Girls. Although version of “Thank you for being a Friend” used in the show was sung by Cynthia Fee, the original was written, recorded, and performed by Andrew Gold.

Andrew Gold has music in his genes, as his mother is singer Marni Nixon and his father was Ernest Gold who was an Oscar winning film scorer. “Thank you for being a Friend” charted at #25 in 1978 as a single from Gold’s LP “All this and Heaven Too.” Thank you for being a friend and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
