There, she meets Liam Montgomery (Joseph Almani) and his entourage of wealthy, good-looking friends, known as the F4, who rule the school by fear and coercion.

Boys Before Friends, also known as "Between Boys and Friends", is the highly anticipated American remake of the popular Japanese manga "Hana Yori Dango", which spawned "Boys Over Flowers" starring Lee Min Ho in Korea, Meteor Garden (Taiwan) and similar remakes in other Asian countries. To make the series more accessible to American audiences, the storyline moves from a high school to a very exclusive graduate school and features a much more multiracial cast.

The song was recorded in 4/4 time for its first take. Immediately after, Brian rearranged the song after realizing that there weren't many waltzes on the radio. Brian Wilson once stated, “The cut 'Friends' was, in my opinion, a good way to keep waltzes alive. Carl had sung...before and now he spearheaded this cut with a heavy vocal performance.” As Peter Reum, a Beach Boys historian, stated “'Friends' is a waltz, and it's been used at the Berklee College of Music to teach students how to write in 3/4 time.” Brian called the song his favorite from the Friends album. An a cappella mix was sold as a vinyl single backed with Al Jardine's Beach Boys reunion song “Don't Fight the Sea” for the charity of 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in April 2011.
