Song of the Week: "Count On Me"

April 26, 2020 - May 2, 2020

This song is considered a classic in some communities and recently made a mini-comeback when veteran singers Deborah Cox and Tamia did a social distancing cover for their fans. You have probably heard it if you have watched the movie Waiting to Exhale (1995) until the end.

As you listen, you will more than likely start thinking of all the people you are closest to... people you would give so much for and people who have helped you through your sufferings. This song was "Umbrella" before Rihanna and Jay-Z made friendships popular again.

Key Lyrics:

"I know sometimes it seems as if it's never gonna end

But you'll get through it

Just don't give in"

"Count on me through thick and thin

A friendship that will never end

When you are weak I will be strong

Helping you to carry on"

"I know that life can make you feel

It's much harder than it really is

But we'll get through it

Just don't give in...

Count on me"

❤ MU
