For the Mothers

Weekly Playlist #2

It’s mother’s day this weekend, so what better way to show some love than with a mother-themed playlist? Unfortunately, I’m still not getting much embedding love – only 6 tracks worked today, and some of those are fairly random reinterpretations rather than the originals. Still, here it is:

Worth it for The Knife alone – beautiful, even played loud through tinny PC speakers. It also has one of the best videos ever! Here’s the full original playlist:

We Share Our Mother’s Health – The Knife
Does Your Mother Know – ABBA
Your Mother Should Know – The Beatles
Dress Like Your Mother – Sleeper
Every Mother’s Son – The Wedding Present
I Feel Like the Mother of the World – Smog
I Need a Mother – Eels
I Want to be the Boy to Warm your Mother’s Heart – The White Stripes
Mother’s Little Helper – The Rolling Stones
This is to Mother You – Sinead O’Connor

No worries about missing Sinead O’Connor (unless your mum likes her), but there were some fantastic tracks (e.g. Smog) in there that would have been nice to hear. Oh well, better luck next time.

    How have you missed the following?

    Sylvia’s Mother (Dr Hook & The Medicine Show)
    My Mother was a Chinese Trapese Artist (The Decemberists)
    Mother Goose (Jethro Tull)
    Never tell your mother she’s out of tune (Jack Bruce)

    Note: all Guided by Voices tunes omitted.

    Oh, and this might be a bit too familiar for mother’s day (NSFW):

    Is the Knife video a Motomichi?

      I think it is motomichi, yes.

      Only room for 10 mothers…don’t know how I missed the Decemberists, though. Bad Binky.
