Whether you’re going on a date or spending time with your partners at home, or just be alone, listening to good music can complete or save your Valentine’s Day. But what songs are great to listen to this hearts’ day? Jessica Andrews’ “I Will Be There for You” would be a perfect choice.
I Will Be There for You
American country music artist Jessica Andrews debuted a love song entitled “I Will Be There for You” in 1999. The timing of the song’s release was perfect as it came out in the month of February that year. It’s the month of love and the song offers a great choice for everyone either to listen to, sing to, or dedicate to their loved ones. The fitting theme of the song with the occasion made it enter in several music charts and perform quite well.
It appealed to audiences from the United States and Canada. It was a Top 10 pop hit peaking at No. 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song was also able to secure a spot on the country chart. Specifically, “I Will Be There for You” reached No. 28. Meanwhile, the song became a Top 50 country hit in Canada, occupying the 43rd spot on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks.
The Promise of an Enduring Love
The song expresses a powerful message of love. This was conveyed by the narrator who acknowledges the great love shown to her by her partner throughout their lives. Her response to this affection is a sweet promise that she will be there for her man no matter how long and rough the journey they are taking.
Whenever the road is too long
Whenever the wind is too strong
Wherever this journey may lead to
I will be there for you, oh yes I will be there for you
I’ll always be there
Tom Shapiro, Josh Leo, and Rick Bowles penned the song which was the first single from Andrews’ album Heart Shaped World. The debut album was released in March 1999, a month after the single has dropped.
