In honor of Mother's Day this coming Sunday, this week's Put Your Headphones On Friday playlist offers a list of alternative tunes the revolve around the greatest woman in our lives, our Mothers!

Which is why, it comes as no surprise that some artists, most especially musicians, like to take their love for their mums and express it through their art. Without going too much into the road of cheesiness and cliche, here are an alternative list of songs that do just that:
Mama Said by The Shirelles Oh, Mother of Mine by The Temptations Coat of Many Colours by Dolly Parton Mother by Ashanti Superwoman by Alicia Keys Always on the Run by Lenny Kravitz Ms. Jackson by OutKast Dear Mama by 2Pac I Love My Momma by Snoop Dogg Hey Mama by Kanye West Thank You Mom by Good Charlotte Stacy’s Mom by Fountains of Wayne Mother’s Little Helper by The Rolling Stones Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd
The Horizon Kompakt is a miracle in the shape of a 35mm camera. Just watching its multi-coated swing lens as it sweeps 120° degrees is a wonder to behold.

Capture picture-perfect panoramas and get prints approximately the size of two standard frames. With the Kompakt, you'll see the world from a whole new perspective.
