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
Mother Nature’s Son – The Beatles
For A Thousand Mothers – Jethro Tull
Mother Of A Girl – Violent Femmes
Mother – The Police
Mother’s Ruin – Kirsty MacColl
That Was Your Mother – Paul Simon
Mama Kin – Aerosmith
Mama – Genesis
Mama Told Me (Not To Come) – Three Dog Night
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.
