Mother’s Day CD Mix

I’ve got a new godson. The Acorn is not quite three months old, which makes this the first mother’s day for 40ish Annie Oakley.

The Acorn being but a few weeks old, that leaves me to represent for him this Mother’s Day.

To that end, here’s the approximately 74 minute Mother’s Day CD mix that we’ve whipped up for Mommy. We start with a couple of popular songs about Jewish mothers, and go on from there, ending up with a classic song of grandmotherly advice.

Loves Me Like a Rock – Paul Simon
Kyle’s Mom’s a Bitch – South Park
Mama Tried – Merle Haggard
Make Me Mommy – Ben Fold
I Love My Mom – The Roches
Mother – The Police
Mother Maybelle – Osborne Brothers & Mac Wiseman
Mother – Ray Charles
Night Train – Rickie Lee Jones
My Mother the Car – TV theme song

Mother – John Lennon
The Son of Hickory Holler’s Tramp – Merle Haggard
Harper Valley PTA – Jeannie C Riley
Little Green – Joni Mitchell
Julia- John Lennon
Klezmer – The Jewish Mother – Itzhak Perlman
Hungry Eyes – Merle Haggard
Leave the Dishes in the Sink, Ma – Spike Jones
Sylvia’s Mother – Dr Hook
Mama Couldn’t Be Persuaded – Warren Zevon
Mother and Child Reunion – Paul Simon
Simple Man – Lynyrd Skynyrd

Perhaps you’d like to whip up something similar. Or something a little different. I probably wouldn’t give this to MY mother. She’s just not quite hip enough for this kind of deal.

    “Kyle’s Mom Is A Bitch”

    nice touch!

    Cool list – since you already have two other Merles, you could substitute the Grateful Dead’s excellent version of “Mama Tried”

    Thanks, Mark. I like the mini-dialectic on Jewish motherhood in the opposing images of the first two songs.

    I didn’t realize quite what a mama’s boy Merle was until I started putting together this list.

    Annie Oakley also got a DVD of Serial Mom, only $5.50 at the local WalMart.
