Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
I am not ashamed to admit that “Mama” left me with a trembly chin and watery eyes. For the first time, I think I truly understood what my own mother had said to me so many times before, “when you have children of your own, you’ll understand.” Something in those cheesy, hastily-written lyrics spoke to me, and for the rest of the car journey I was bigging up my mama-self, albeit with bleary eyes. The sacrifices we make for our children can be earth shattering and life changing. Despite often minimal appreciation, we dutifully carry on along our journey of motherhood.
This playlist is a culmination of a whole bunch of musicians paying homage to their mamas. This is the playlist to stick on when you’re feeling under appreciated and need some mama love. Close your eyes and picture Kanye himself, looming over, whilst you do the dishes. Whether classic rock is your thing or you’re a gangster rap girl at heart, press play and sing to yourself, sing to your mama, or sing to your gal-pal mama.

Jody is the Kent-based mama behind Crafted Sisterhood. Casper, her son and partner in crime, is nearing the one year mark. Very new to the ‘working mama’ scene, she’s currently getting into the groove of her new juggling act, but also very much enjoying drinking coffee whilst it’s still hot and a break from Mr Tumble and Co.
