Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12th. Whether you are a mother or want to celebrate with your mother, be sure to tune in on Sunday for special songs dedicated to that special woman in your life.
In honour of mothers, we have selected some classic songs that mention “mothers”. We look forward to celebrating Mother’s Day with you this Sunday on AM740.
Tell Mama by Etta James: This song is about the classic motherly quality that paints mothers as great listeners and even better advisors. In this song Etta James sings to her son – a man who has just been left by his girlfriend. Now he needs to come home and come clean – tell mama about it.
Mama Said by The Shirelles: A reassuring mother is the topic of this song. A girl sees a boy she likes, but that feeling is not reciprocated. Crying to her mom she gets some classic advice “there’d be days like this”
Shop Around by The Miracles: A mother gives advice to her son about how to chose the right wife and be sure to look for the right one before he settles down.
Whether mothers are giving advice or listening to a broken heart they are given life in these songs. Today is the perfect day to sit around the radio with your mother and listen in to our special programming!
