Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Really, every day should be Mother's Day, as your mom is not only the person who carried you for nine months but also took care of you, nurtured you and helped you grow up into whoever you ended up becoming. If you're close to your mom, take her out for brunch or invite her to a barbecue, and if you're not, she deserves at least a card and a phone call. Your mom probably had to deal with a lot, so she deserves 24 hours of praise and devotion. She's earned it.
Musicians are constantly calling out their mothers, and there are dozens upon dozens of tunes that properly shout out the first ladies we all get to know in our lives. We've put together a handful of our favorites below, including Bon Jovi's "If I Was Your Mother," Poison's "Your Mama Don't Dance," the Dead Weather's "Treat Me Like Your Mother" and Chromeo's "Momma's Boy." Of course, some of the greatest songs about mothers aren't currently available on this Web site, including Danzig's "Mother," Tupac's "Dear Mama" and Pink Floyd's "Mother."
However, that didn't stop us from presenting you with gems like Fountains of Wayne's "Stacy's Mom," DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince's "Parents Just Don't Understand" and our first selection on this Mother's Day: The Black Eyed Peas' "Hey Mama," a bubbly hit from their smash 2003 album Elephunk that should get your mom up out of her seat and dancing in celebration of her special day.
