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.
