If you forgot it was Mother's Day this weekend, you're welcome. Whether you like her or not, she is the reason you’re here today, so take a few minutes to thank her for everything she has done for you. Or, send her one of these songs we conveniently hand-selected for you. Once again, you’re welcome.
Good Charlotte – “Thank You, Mom”
After all, this song really sums up exactly what Mother’s Day is all about. What better way to show her than sending this sweet ode her way? “Thank You, Mom” is truly a song all about what mothers do for us, including, but not limited to: picking you up when you’re down, making you into the person you were always meant to be and bringing joy and happiness into your heart. Your mom has been there for you since day one, “always, always and forever” and nobody sings it better than Good Charlotte's Joel Madden.
A Day To Remember – “Homesick”
Being far away from home and your family is more than enough to send a dagger through your heart. If you can’t be with your mother on this mother’s day, this song is just too relatable. Nothing hurts more than being away from the person that you need the most. Sending this A Day To Remember track to your mom from a few states away is sure to be a tearjerker. We recommend the acoustic version for your dear, sweet mother’s ears, however. You know, unless she shreds.
Bowling For Soup – “Somebody Get My Mom”
We don’t need to tell you that your mother is usually right. And when you really screw things up, she’s still somehow there for you. Bowling For Soup’s “Somebody Get My Mom” really sums up the feeling of being at your absolute lowest. Sometimes it seems at those points, your mom is the only one who can really pull you out of a deep funk and get you right back on track. Thankfully, she always pulls through.
My Chemical Romance – “Mama”
Okay, so maybe you don’t want to send you mom this one. But this song slaps and if your mom will throw down with you to My Chemical Romance, you definitely have the coolest mom of all time. It’s worth a try. Right?
Movements – “Vacant Home”
If you weren’t thinking about calling your mom before, this song will definitely change your mind. The idea of losing your mom is absolutely unbearable and “Vacant Home” pulls at the heartstrings, sharing that the four words that ring out in Movements frontman, Patrick Miranda’s, head when he thinks of his mom are “be good, be safe.” For those of you who may not have your mother anymore, this one’s for you. Never take her for granted, folks.
