When we started to think about what moms want most for Mother’s Day (other than 800 hours of sleep, a million dollars, and solid reassurance that everything WILL actually be OK), we landed on the obvious: Bonding time AND music.
What’s a better way to spend your Mother’s Day than listening to some classic odes to moms with your loved ones? It’s a great way to bond with your 12-year-old who doesn’t know anything other than Queen Bey and Bieber, your mom who introduced you to Stevie Wonder, or your partner who is (hopefully) making you breakfast in bed.
Below are some of our favorite songs that can be found on Spotify–listen below (you don’t have to have an account…although if you do, you can save this playlist to listen to whenever you need a pick me up!).
