Remember That Song – 12/2/19

Can you name the artist and song:

Now is the time
For you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night
I’ll save you from the terrors on the screen
I’ll make you see


Last Song: “Thank You For Being a Friend” by Andrew Gold from the album All This and Heaven Too (1978), but best known as the theme from The Golden Girls (September 14, 1985 – May 9, 1992), sung by Cynthia Fee

Adora (@Adora2000), Lisa (@gabbyg89), Blast From The Past (@BFTP4780), and 90’s Nerd (@90snerds)!!!

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
Well, you would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank You For Being a Friend

Here is the full Andrew Gold version:
