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!
We can all agree that our mothers play an important role in our lives. For starters, we wouldn’t even be on this Earth if it weren’t for them! (Okay, dads deserve to get credit too, but let’s save that for next month!)
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
Moment Hung is a copywriter from Hong Kong who loves attending gigs and meeting new people. In this interview, our newcomer of the week expands more about his passion for live music and of course photography!
Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
