Happy Mothers' Day

Here's a collection of songs about moms, both celebratory and derogatory (because we all know we've been awful to our mothers now and again).
Stream or Download

Kate Bush - Mother Stands for Comfort
The Psychedelic Furs - Mother-Son
Cocteau Twins - When Mama Was Moth
Mazzy Star - Umbilical
Station Break - Eluvium - I Will Not Forget That I Have Forgotten
Red House Painters - Mother
Autumn's Grey Solace - Distant Mother
Low - Mom Says
Tori Amos - Maybe California
Station Break - Max Richter - The Twins (Prague)
Siouxsie and the Banshees - Mother / Oh Mein Papa
The Raveonettes - Momma I'm A Communist
Rasputina - Momma Was an Opium Smoker
The Decemberists - A Cautionary Song

Bonus video time! I really wanted to play this song, but it didn't fit in with the rest of the tracks. So here it is, in all its ridiculousness, Danzig's "Mother":
