There’s nothing like a mother. As we get closer to Mother’s Day on Sunday May 12, we have collected some songs to get you in the mood to celebrate everything mom. From the songs about what mom taught us, to what she represents, to the ache of missing her when she’s far, here’s a playlist to get you in the right mindset to show gratitude to the moms in your life.
