Intimate Friends

Intimate Friends (1977), by Eddie Kendricks, describes a passionate friendship that is open to interpretation. Eddie could be singing about his relationship with one of multiple lovers. He might be singing about his relationship with someone who is not a lover. All I know is that he is detailing a relationship with someone who is not just a friend. The lyrics and title imply that there is a “friendship hierarchy.” Intimate friends are near the top. Listen to what he has to say. Draw your own conclusions.
