Garth Brooks, Good Charlotte, Step Parents, Thank You Mom

This is a list of “mom” songs – tunes that show gratitude and appreciation for moms. They’re perfect for Mother’s Day, birthdays, or just to thank her for being your mother. Make a mix CD, put the lyrics in a card, or just send her a link so that she can listen to the songs.


“Thank You Mom” by Good Charlotte – A rock song that says “I’ll always love you, Mom”.

“You’re the Inspiration” by Chicago – This classic rock song is self-explanatory.

“A Song 4 Mama” by Boyz II Men – A little dated, but this R&B; song is sweet nevertheless.

“Wind Beneath My Wings” – There are several versions of this song, but Bette Midler’s classic and Gary Morris’s country version are the best.

“In My Life” by the Beatles – This song says that out of all relationships, the one with Mother is Number One.

“Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor – I know, a lot of people joke about her, but this song is really good!

“Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion – Tells Mom the power of her love.

“You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban – Again, the power of a mother’s love.


“Fore She Was Mama” by Clay Walker – This song is really cute. It talks about the life of the woman she was pre-children. It’s a good “mom” song because the fact that Mom is actually a person is often overlooked.

“Somebody’s Hero” by Jamie O’Neal – Perfect for the stay-at-home mother.

“In This Life” by Collin Raye – Says that one of the most important things in life is being loved by a mother.

“Jesus and Mama” by Confederate Railroad – Talks about a mother’s ability to forgive and love unconditionally.

“I.O.U.” by Jimmy Dean – This classic is not so much a song (the lyrics are spoken) but it lists all the gifts a mother gives her children, and gratitude for those gifts.

“Momisms” by Anita Renfroe – This song isn’t country or pop, but it’s hilarious! Renfroe sings about all the things mothers tell their children to the tune of the William Tell Overture. Sure to put a smile on your mom’s face!
