This Mother's Day playlist is songs about moms, songs about being a mom, or just some kind of tie-in with mothers. There are songs on the list that are about great relationships with Mom. Some songs are inspirational. Some talk about love and appreciation for our mothers. Some songs just have 'Mama' in the title.

I have to say Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, and to all the mothers out there. Thank you for all that you do. Let's start the Mother's Day playlist with one of my favorite Mom songs.

Lee Ann Womack: "I Hope You Dance"

Quick Thought: It's the best song ever written about a mothers' hopes for their children.

Best Line:

"I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance.
Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin'.
Lovin' might be a mistake, but it's worth makin'." - Lee Ann Womack


Boyz II Men: "Song For Mama"

Quick Thought: A must-have on any Mother's Day playlist.

Best Line:

"There were so many times, looking back when I was so afraid. And then you'd come to me and say to me. I can face anything." - Boyz II Men


Ozzy Osbourne: "Mama, I'm Coming Home"

Quick Thought: No, it's not about his Mom. It's about his baby mama. But it's still about a mom, it has 'Mama' in the title, so it's on the list.

Best Line:

"Times have changed and times are strange. Here I come but I ain't the same" - Ozzy Osbourne


Carrie Underwood: "Mama's Song"

Quick Thought: About a mother whose daughter is getting married and the daughter wants Mom to know that he is a good man.

Best Line:

Mama, there's no way you'll ever lose me, And giving me away is not goodbye,
As you watch me walk down to my future, I hope tears of joy are in your eyes. - Carrie Underwood


 2Pac: "Dear Mama"

Quick Thought: It's a song about knowing what his mother went through raising him and how much he appreciates her. Pretty tame for a 2Pac song.

Best Line:

I finally understand. For a woman, it ain't easy trying to raise a man. - 2Pac


 

'N Sync: "(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time On You"

Quick Thought: When you just listen, the song is not about mothers. When you watch the video, it seems like it is. That's why the song made this list.

Best Line:

When I look into your eyes, I know that it's true.
God must have spent a little more time on you. - 'N Sync


Jason Mraz: "What Mama Say (Life Is Good)"

Quick Thought: The things many mothers say to their kids and that we should have listened to earlier in life.

Best line:

"Mama said I should settle down with a girl like you
I'm gonna work real hard, its what I'm gonna do" - Jason Mraz


Kacey Musgraves: "Mother"

Quick Thought: It's not a long song, and it's both sad and sweet.

Best line:

And missing my mother, mother
And she's probably sitting there
Thinking 'bout the time that's slipping
And missing her mother, mother. - Kacey Musgraves


 

LL Cool J: "Mama Said Knock You Said"

Quick Thought: Another song that made this list because it's got the word Mama in it.

Best Line:

"Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years"

- LL Cool J
