Songs About Mothers #mewsicmovesme

Happy Belated Mother's Day to those of you who celebrated yesterday.

Mother's Day UK was back in March so we've already celebrated!

So songs about Mothers is the theme for Mewsic Moves Me today, as chosen by this month's
4M honorary co-hostess Cynthia from Cool4him

ELVIS PRESLEY - Mama Loved The Roses

Elvis lost his beloved mother when he was in his early 20s and just starting out in his career.

NIGHTWISH - Our Decades In The Sun

This emotional track is a tribute to the band's parents. It is indeed very moving.


Like Elvis, John Lennon lost his mother when he was very young. He was just 17 when his mother Julia was tragically killed by a drunk driver.

ABBA - Does Your Mother Know?

A fun song from the Swedish group. Mum was a big ABBA fan when she was little.

OZZY OSBOURNE - Mama, I'm Coming Home

Apparently, this song is not about Ozzy's mother but about his wife Sharon Osbourne.  'Mama, I'm Coming Home' was always something he'd say to her over the phone after he'd finished a tour.

Lovely tribute to Mom! How sad that Elvis and John lost their mothers at such young ages. When you're young, you don't fully understand all that mom does for you and often it's not appreciated until one has his/her children. At least that's the case for me. I thought I did but it became clear to me as the years passed just how much more I appreciate and understand the importance of mom in my life and our family. We are far better with her in our lives than without and hopefully we'll be blessed with many more years. Your mewsic selections are beautiful. Thanks for joining the 4M crew on the dance floor, my darlin'! Have a good week and be blessed!!

Those are all great Mother's Day songs! Great choices, Athena! My dad is obsessed with the Beatles, so I've heard that one quite a few times. :)

Some old favorites - ABBA and Ozzy. The Nightwish song grew on me as I listened to it. Interesting, the artists who lost their Moms relatively young. I did also. Maybe it leaves a void in yur life that ou try to fill by creating. It does make you wonder. Have a great week!
