"Friends" is a song by the German group Scooter. It was released in May 1995 as the third single from their first album ... and the Beat Goes On!. The song was covered in 2009 by Klostertaler, for a Scooter tribute album. In April 2011, an updated version of the original, entitled "Friends Turbo", was released as the theme to the film New Kids Turbo.[1]

The song is notable as the first example of the band using high pitched female vocals for the chorus of a song. The band also used this on the follow-up single "Endless Summer" before abandoning it until "Posse (I Need You on the Floor)" in 2001, after which it became a staple of most Scooter singles.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The music video was filmed in Paris.[citation needed]
