80+ Best Songs for Mothers

Carson suffers from a serious case of melophilia. Geeking out on her favorite music artists is her guilty pleasure.


"There's nothing quite like a mother's love."

When you hit the pause button, forget for all the things that occupy your day, and just take a moment to think about all the things your mother has done for you, this statement doesn't ring any truer.

Sometimes, it's difficult to imagine how she can offer love, care, and protection even if she's dealing with her own personal struggles. And despite any misunderstandings or shortcomings you may have, she finds a way to stick by your side.

For all the things your mom has done and continues to do, she deserves to be celebrated, even if it's not Mother's Day or her birthday yet.

A date night with your mom will surely be appreciated. You can even consider getting her a simple gift, a bouquet of flowers, or a reservation at the spa. But if you want something more personal, try serenading her with the best songs for mothers.

You might be surprised that some of the songs you're familiar with are actually dedicated to the mothers of the artists. These Mother's Day songs can help you find the right words to express your love and gratitude for your mom, especially if you're the type who easily gets shy and tongue-tied.

You'll find mom songs across a variety of genres, so picking one your mom would like shouldn't be a problem. If you want something more specific, you can find mother-daughter songs or mother-son songs in this playlist as well.
