Mother’s Cookies For Mother’s Day

I want everybody out there to do something for me…  Spend time with your mother today and do something nice for her. If you can’t spend time with her, give her a call (Your mother just piped in with “Would it kill you to pick up the phone?”)  My mother’s been gone for many years, and Mother’s Day makes me wish I could spend some time with her… So just appreciate her, and don’t take her for granted.

Enough of my sermon… For Mother’s Day, I thought I would  share some of the small handful of Mother’s Cookies cards I own, and intersperse a playlist of songs which have “Mother”, “Mom” or “Mama” in the title.

New Mother Nature – The Guess Who
Mother Popcorn – James Brown
Tie Your Mother Down – Queen
1990 Mother's Cookies Will Clark Set 3 of 4
Mother Nature’s Son – The Beatles
For A Thousand Mothers – Jethro Tull
Mother Of A Girl – Violent Femmes
1988 Mother's Cookies Alejandro Pena
Mother – The Police
Mother’s Ruin – Kirsty MacColl
That Was Your Mother – Paul Simon
1988 Mother's Cookies Jose Uribe
Mama Kin – Aerosmith
Mama – Genesis
Mama Told Me (Not To Come) – Three Dog Night
1988 Mother's Cookies Kevin Mitchell

Other qualified songs which didn’t quite make the cut:
Your Mother Should Know – The Beatles; Mother’s Little Helper – The Rolling Stones; Mother Goose – Jethro Tull; Mother And Child Reunion – Paul Simon; So Long, Mom (A Song For World War III) – Tom Lehrer; Mama Gets High – Blood, Sweat & Tears; Your Mama Don’t Dance – Loggins & Messina; Fresh Air For My Mama – 10cc; Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys – Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson;  Mother – John Lennnon;  Mama Said Knock You Out – LL Cool J;  Mother – Pink Floyd

Any other “Mom Songs” you want to include?  I didn’t include songs that mentioned Mom (like “Our House” by Madness), but I won’t place the same restrictions on you.

  1. A. Mother’s Cookies baseball cards rule! When I was a kid, my brother would take me to Giants and A’s games whenever they gave them away.

    B. Always liked “Mother” by Danzig.

    C. Preach on brother! I love my mom and will try my best not to take her for granted.

    • A) Having spent my entire life in the Eastern Time Zone, Mother’s cards are fairly exotic for me… I do like to pick them up now and then.
      B) That’s a good one… I also heard “Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This” by the Shirelles on the radio later in the day.
