The Best Songs About Moms

2016-04-29-BLOG

Our boss, lord and master of the best florist in town (in our humble opinion) always says around this time of the year: “everyone has a mother”. True, everyone does have a mother. She may be alive or has passed, we may never have known her, or we may have grown smothered with her love or we may have mother figures in many shapes and/or forms, but we all have a mother. Even musicians have mothers. Shocking, we know. But it’s true, they too have one and some of them have sung some of the most beautiful songs dedicated to their moms. Because a mother’s love does inspire some of the sweetest melody.

Today, we will share some of them with you. We had fun finding them for you.

Through our search for loving songs for Moms, we found that a number of rappers had rapped about their momas. It’s not something you’d expect. Even tough rappers do have soft moments where they let the love for their mothers shine and we thought it was sweet. Check out the rhymes Of Tupac in “Dear mama”, “Hey Mama” by Kanye West (yes, the self-loving rapper took a break from the self-love to love his mother), “Dance” by Naz, Snoop Dogg, or is it Snoop Lion now, well he said “Took me to school the first day , Taught me how to kneel down and pray , You learned (poetic licence) me how to count from one to ten , And never forget, where I’ve been, momma” in his “I love My Momma” rap song and Talib Kweli put together some of the sweetest lyrics about his mother in  “Momma Can You Hear Me”.

The tough and rough artist of hard rock, rock and roll, and punk rock also penned some sweet mother’s love lyrics. Singers like Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Lucero, Elvis Presley and The Beatles have sung to show their love to their mothers. With lyrics like “Mama, she has taught me well, told me when I was young, ‘Son, your life’s an open book, Don’t close it ‘fore it’s done” by Metallica and “Seashell eyes, windy smile calls me, So I sing the song of love” By The Beatles, what mother’s heart wouldn’t melt into a puddle of goo.

R&B singers are known for their special way of making people get into their feelings. So imagine what we would feel when they sing lovely songs for their Moms. When the Boys II Men said “There was so many times, looking back when I was so afraid, and then you come to me and say to me, I can face anything” in their song “A Song for Mama” in their soulful voices and when R. Kelly said “I just can’t forget how you gave me love, oh no, if there’s a heaven up above, know she’s teaching angels how to love” in his song “Sadie” we felt all the feelings and so did all the mothers around the world.

Even Justin Bieber made Beliebers out of mothers with his song “Turn to You” when he said “So when you’re lost and you’re tired, when you’re broken in two, let my love take you higher, Because I still turn to you” Other pop singers brought the fun in the mom-love too like The Spice Girls and the Backstreet boys.

So whatever genre of music you are into there is a song that will speak to that part of your heart that holds your mom. They are beautiful songs and they are pure and honest. Just like your mom’s love for you. And we leave you with one last song by The intruders “I’ll Always Love My Momma, She’s My Favorite Girl!”

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

 


Best TV Moms

Make Her Day

We’ve all sat in our comfortable sofas or sprawled on the floor and watched the funny, loving, smart (sometimes not very), crazy mothers of the TV world. Sometimes, we wished our mothers were like ones of the cool moms of our favorite shows and sometime we thank the good Lord that our mothers are nothing like the ones in the box and sometimes we laugh the hardest because we relate to kids on the show because our mothers do the same things.

Like in real life, TV moms come in all shapes, sizes and characters. We have the helicopter moms like Beverly Goldberg played by Wendi McLendon-Covey from “The Goldbergs”, and the mother who believes…err-knows her children could do no wrong and are just about the best “schmoopies” ever like Beverly Goldberg or the mom that will keep each and every item her child ever created like Beverly Goldberg…yes we do love the super loving, super smothering TV mom.

Celebrate Mom

Some moms are animated, some in character and some are actually, literally animated like our Lois Griffin and Marge Simpson. These two moms are the glue that hold their family together because, if it were left to their goofy husbands, their families would cause unimaginable destruction.

And then, there are the mothers that seem to have it all together like Claire Dunphy in Modern family played by Julie Bowen, but in reality really don’t. You see them lose their cool like many of our mothers do trying to bounce between being a mom, a friend and a sister to their child. And there is the ultimate cool mom Claire Huxtable whose children fear, respect and love. She’s the mom that has it all under control: the career, the parenting of five very different children, the being a wonderful wife, and a great friend (only on TV do these things happen so don’t feel bad).

Pure Elegance

And then we have our funny moms like Rosanne on Rosanne as Rosanne and Reba on Reba as Reba (yes, that was fun!). These two were very relatable TV moms that made us laugh and cry (sometimes both at the same time) and we got to love and enjoy for years.

Of course there are the Marie Barone of “Everyone Loves Raymond”, Betty Drapers of “Mad Men”, Endora from “Bewitched” and Peggy Bundy of “married with children” that make us understand that we are truly blessed to have our real life mother. And for Mother’s Day we know we have to thank our wonderful mothers for being the best mother they knew how to be. They loved us, cared for us, nurtured us, educated us, disciplined us, and watched us proudly as we grew up to become the men and women we are today. We cannot thank them enough for their selfless love and we know they deserve the world. We can’t help you give them the world but we can help you make their day super special with our customer designed flower arrangements created with moms in mind.
