When it comes to love, when it comes to care, when it boils down to concern, it rarely ever gets more real than the love a mother has for her child. Men can conquer cities, men can face beasts bare-handed and men can scale intimidating mountains, but every man instantly becomes a small boy waiting to be cared for when in the presence of his mother. This fact of life, fortunately, also applies to women, for the love of a mother, knows no distinction. In fact as far as mortal love goes, it almost doesn't get more sugary than the love of a mother. If you are the kind of person who just can't seem to get enough of your mother and the love she is more than willing to pour out on you, here's an opportunity to help her know how you feel! All you need to do is just play her a song, the kind of song that revolves around mothers and it's done. The deal is set, the bond is made!
Love Songs For Mother
Pink Floyd- Mother
If you ask a true fan of the iconic English band Pink Floyd, if he/she has heard the song 'Mother', he/she will be quick to reply in the positive. The concept behind the conception of the song notwithstanding, Pink Floyd's 'mother' is really one of the best songs to play for your mother. Not only does this song help you let your mother know you care, in a way, it's also a song that makes it seem like you are looking up to your mother for advice, the kind of advice that will help you sail through the treacherous waters of this world. How else can you explain these lines - "Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb? Mother, should I build the wall? Mother, should I run for President? Mother, should I trust the government? Mother, will they put me in the firing line? Is it just a waste of time?" When playing the song out for your mom, don't forget to notice the soulful guitar solos.
A Song For Mama - Boys II Men
A far cry from the musical style of Pink Floyd, Boys II Men's 'A Song for Mama', still makes for one of the greatest songs you can play to your mom. Come on, with a title like this, would you even want to dedicate another song to your mother? The song by itself is a chart topper, the tune for which was composed by a member of the band, 'Babyface'. The song was also the theme song of the motion picture Soul Food and due to its out-of-this-world phrasing topped the US R&B charts for a good two weeks and hit the seventh spot on the Billboard Hot 100. If you are looking to let your mother know that you can't live without her, 'A song for mama' is the way to go!
Simple Kind Of Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Since this one is all about the songs for mother that are not too clichéd and slightly undiscovered, Lynrd Skynrd's 'Simple Kind Of Man' can't be let go of. It's the kind of song that will need to grow on to you, and once it does, you surely will not be able to get enough of it. Unfortunately, here, it's not about you, but your mother, for it's really important for her to like the song as much as you do. The song by itself is advice of sorts, but with a very pleasing melody and lyrics to match, it makes for an unconventional love song for mother. Play it to her and watch as she relates to it, like no one else can. A word of caution: This song will have maximum effect when played by a son to his mother and not daughter to mother, for obvious reasons of course!
Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler
It's pretty simple and pretty understated and that's only because not many people realize that the song 'Wind Beneath My Wings' can actually be played to a mother. This song was successful enough to win the 1990 Grammy for the 'Song of the Year', giving you just another reason to play it for your mother. Great vocals, great arrangement and the most meaningful lyrics ever, a song for mom indeed!
