Songs for Mother's Day

So we have Father's Day covered in one topic, which is June 17th, so we'd better get busy with a list for Mother's Day which is right around the corner on May 13th!!

 

Songs about mom, mama, or even a song for mom . . .

Mama Told Me Not To Come - Three Dog Night

Regular Contributor

The first that came to mind was the wonderful Connie Francis. The song "Mama" is in Italian and at the midway point changes to English. It's a beautiful number.

Contributor

Mama by Connie Francis has always been my favorite.  I lost my beautiful, loving mother in August 1986 and every time I hear this song I cry, like I am now.  I miss her so very much, but I know she's in heaven watching her family from above.  I loved my mother very much, but I was not as attentive as I should have been; didn't call or go see her often enough.  Her love was always unconditional. 

 

For all of you who still have your mother, take the time to call and go visit her often; let her know how much you love her so you'll have no regrets.

 

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

I Remember Mama - Shirley Caesar

 

I remember Mama,  and the love that she gave
Kneeling by her bed side  I can still hear Mama say,
 "The people are depending on you, Shirley,  don't you let them down"
I remember Mama in a happy way

 

We went to school with holes in our shoes
We didn't have much but the Lord saw us through
Mama kept the family together, together yes she did
I remember Mama in a happy way


She packed our lunch in an old greasy bag 

It might've seemed empty, but it was more than others had
It had a lot of love way down deep inside and
I remember Mama in a happy way


I remember Mama in a happy way
Now Mama is sleeping in the bosom of Jesus Christ 

Somehow I know she's smiling, she's smiling on us right  now
One day I'll see her again, how happy I will be 

And I remember Mama in a happy way

 

My brothers and sisters, they're living far apart
Although my Mama's gone, she's right here in our hearts
We're all gonna pull together and stay in the holy place
I remember Mama in a happy way


I remember Mama in a happy way

Dear Mama -- 2Pac

 

OK, yeah, there were definitely some issues ("And even as a crack fiend, mama ..." and "I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks, it feels good putting money in your mailbox.") But all the good things he remembers from his childhood and the love and appreciation he has for everything his mama did for him are a touching illustration of the almost universal depth of the mother-child bond .
