Below are the best three songs that come up when I search my media player for the word mother, what are yours? A few others that came up for me were:
- We Share Our Mother's Health, The Knife
- Matilda Mother, Pink Floyd
- Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives, Voxtrot
- Mother's Little Helper, The Rolling Stones
- My Mother Was A Chinese Trapez Artist, The Decemberists
Song two is from The Veils, who I discussed once upon a time in this entry.
The third track is from the final album by the now-defunct Beulah, who were associated with Elephant 6. Wiki: "Beulah themselves had stated that, if Yoko did not achieve gold status, the band would split. Though it received the best reviews of the band's career, scoring Universal Acclaim on Metacritic and described as a "career-spanning epic" by Dusted Magazine, the record still failed to achieve gold status, and consequently the band, after one final tour, split up, ending with a free concert at New York's Battery Park at Castle Clinton on August 5, 2004. Recently, a DVD chronicling their last tour in fall 2003, titled A Good Band is Easy to Kill (referring to the band's song "A Good Man is Easy to Kill", which, in turn, references lead singer Miles's love for Flannery O'Connor) was released, again to much praise. In 2005, all four Beulah albums, as well as the single "My Horoscope Said It Would Be a Bad Year," were released on iTunes after fans suggested they be easily accessible.
