"Just a Friend"

It's tough being stuck in the friend zone and having your feelings stuffed away in that "play" brother/sister corner. Several artists have made records about being placed in purgatory while others have kicked game about breaking that emergency glass and going for theirs. The Diabolical Biz Markie took us down his road of misery in 1989 (and again recently at Comic-Con in a duet with Channing Tatum). "Don't ever talk to a girl who says she has just a friend," Biz warns. We've all been there.
