I asked my friend Aliya at the awesome blog Pokemon-personalities for ideas for a new Poke-song. She suggested this post might inspire me, and it did. You know when you are mad—and you want to be mad—but your best friend makes you laugh? When you just can’t help but feel better? I think this image captures that magic. Pikachu was such a good friend for Ash; he never let Ash give up hope. So I wrote a song about their friendship. Can you spot all the Poke-references in the lyrics? Free downloads of this song are here (just enter $0 as the price). Much love. — Kavalier Calm
To be the very best, like no one ever was,
we need friends who believe in us
to tell us dreams are like Butterfrees:
they’re only caught in a net that swings.
When our heart is weak, good friends make it beat.
They bolt and shock us with lightning
‘til we believe.
To earn every badge of courage you can
takes a good friend’s helping hand.
On sad days they say, “You won’t catch them all
if you give up throwing the ball.”
‘Cause life’s an adventure, life’s a quest,
and for it we need friends who are the best.
