About This Quiz

Great moments lived by Chandler, Joey, Monica, Phoebe, Rachel, and Ross were accompanied by remarkable songs.

How well do you know the Friends theme songs?

Rachel, Monica, Ross, Joey, Phoebe, and Chandler form a group of six Friends who struggle to excel and progress in the competitive life of Manhattan. Work, family, responsibility, money, sex, commitment and, above all, love and friendship, are some of the themes that concern and sometimes amuse these characters. It was no coincidence that the sofa at Central Perk, the café where they meet to talk, was replaced twice from overuse. This series was filmed for ten seasons, achieving success after success. Its promotional soundtrack, “I will be there for you” (Rembrandts), is as famous as the program, as its message and chorus perfectly define the meaning of the series’ existence.

Throughout the many episodes of this fan-favorite series, we get the chance to fall in love with the soundtrack. That’s how we can remember the scenes and unforgettable moments of our beloved characters. The Friends soundtrack, despite few known artists, is a strong feature of the history of these six New York friends. To the delight of the fans, two compilation CDs of songs played in the episodes of the series were released (in 1995 and 1999), with excerpts from memorable dialogues between friends, making listening to the CD much more fun.
