Whatever you’re going through—may it be a hard breakup or an awesome life achievement—it’s a whole lot better and definitely more fun when you’ve got your closest friend by your side.

Singer Sara Bareilles—who recently came out with Sounds Like Me, a book she wrote detailing her ups and downs with her songwriting process—certainly agrees. As part of a book-slash-music tour, Bareilles surprised the crowd gathered Tuesday night at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California, with special guest Mona Tavakoli, drummer for Raining Jane, an all-female rock-folk band that recently collaborated and went on tour with Jason Mraz.

Bareilles and Tavakoli, IRL best friends, readily regaled the audience with an a cappella duet to the tune of The Golden Girls theme song.

Although short and sweet, their performance of the iconic tune was well-harmonized, super goofy, and ultimately perfect in every way. Here’s a longer snippet for you to enjoy:

Thank you, girls, for today’s dose of best friendship goals.
