Friday 5: Songs About Moms

This week on the Friday 5 we are celebrating Moms. I think this proved out to be a really fun week and I have some good variety. Here are my 5 picks:

  1. Mama Says from Footloose: The Musical- A really fun little song about listening to your Mom!
  2. Mother and Child Reunion from Paul Simon- I love Paul Simon’s song writing and it is on display here. It’s a mother and child reunion and the power of that relationship.
  3. Just a Housewife from Marilyn Mathis, Not Just a Housewife- I wanted to have one song defending the life of a homemaker.  This song does a great job with that and I wish I could have included the entire song.
  4. Your Mother from Kathryn Beaumont and Peter Pan- Kathryn is one of the best vocalists in Disney history and even though I’m not the biggest Peter Pan fan she sings this song beautifully.
  5. Mama Says from The Shirelles- A classic Motown song about listening to your Mom on the bad days!

What are your favorite songs about Moms? If you have a blog or youtube channel join in with us in the Friday 5  It’s a lot of fun and we have some neat topics coming up.  To participate get the topics on the tumbler page. http://thefridayfivemusic.tumblr.com/

  1. No “Mother Knows Best” from Tangled? 😉

    “Goodbye’s The Saddest Word” by Celine Dion is my favourite. There’s also “Evacuee” by Enya, about a child having to leave their mother.
