more songs that remind me of my mom every time i hear them.
Mercedes Benz - Janis Joplin
i absolutely hated this song, which she would play over and over. i actually like it now. go figure.
Radar Love - Golden Earring
this was my mom's song for some boy she liked but never dated in high school, i believe.
Rebel Yell - Billy Idol
there are many billy idol songs i adore, but this was definitely my mom's fave.
Fire and Rain - James Taylor
such a sad song, but i love it.
All My Loving - The Beatles
she used to sing this to me and for some reason i always thought she made it up. turns out The Beatles made it up (: i also thought she made up "i can see clearly now the rain is gone..."
If I Were a Carpenter - Johnny Cash and June Carter
another song i used to hate. i wasn't a huge fan of June Carter's voice but i got a kick out of my mom trying to imitate her.
Where Have All the Flowers Gone
this is another song i remember her singing all the time, and that i'll probably sing to my kids someday.
these are just a few of the songs that my mom introduced me to and that i probably would not like if it wasn't for her. what songs remind you of your mom? or dad?
