A few favorite songs written about, for, or with mothers in mind by a few of music’s favorite sons; John Lennon, Loudon Wainwright III, Mark Everett (The Eels), Chuck Prophet, Ian Hunter (Mott the Hoople), Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr (Snoop Dogg) and Jeff Tweedy (Golden Smog).
Happy mothers day to one and all! To single fathers left with the kids; to single moms who work harder than ever in these dark, tax-deductible times; to single parents left with a few of their exes kids; to parents who couldn’t birth because of dad’s dead seed or mom’s bad egg so you ended up adopting! ALL OF YOU, including nuclear families, have made mankind better.
Best song about a musician who wants to be your mom, and your Dad; but it’s also one of the most romantic songs about falling in love with a groupie that becomes your wife and/or the mother of your demon seed(s).
I Wish I Was Your Mother from Mott
Ian Hunter Patterson / Mott The Hoople
Best song written for mom that happens to end a record that mainly focuses on thug life, getting high, doin stuff with some bitches, and other hooligan activities.
I Love My Momma from No Limit Top Dogg
Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr / aka Snoop Dogg
