Today here in the UK it is Mother’s Day (yes, America, we don’t all celebrate it when you do), so this week we’ve gone and put together a Sunday Spotify Slaylist dedicated to mothers everywhere. Well, almost. Well, kind of.
Look, it’s not as if there are loads and loads and loads of (good) rock songs about mothers out there, okay?
So yeah, we’ve stretched the concept of “mothers” pretty thin. Not all of these songs are complimentary about mothers. At least one is about people wanting to have sex with your mother. And plenty of them we just put in for their creative use of “motherfucker” in the lyrics. So it’s probably best to listen to this one on your headphones if you’re being a good son or daughter and going to actually visit your mum today. She might not appreciate all the bad language, after all.
Spotify is available to most of Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and a load of other countries for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….you’ll just have to be nice to your mother all day without our killer soundtrack to help you. C’MON, YOU CAN DO IT.
Watch the video to ‘Mutter’ by Rammstein as it’s not on Spotify (not that’s it’s exactly in the spirit of Mother’s Day anyway):
Bonus points to anyone that recognises where we got the image up above to go with this week’s Slaylist. You don’t win a prize, merely a vague sense of smugness and a small amount of our collective admiration.
