New Friendly

"New Friendly" is a song composed by Kevin MacLeod first released on May 20th, 2009, and was first used in "Take the Plunge: Part 1". It is an uplifting electronic synth piece that has become rather iconic with the BFDI community due to it being the very first song played in the show.


According to Incompetech, the official description for New Friendly is "The piece starts out nice, and then becomes a modulating monster about a minute in. It resolves to the initial key, and continues on. Lots of building! Very round-sounding."[1]
