Songs for mom. Raise a glass at Bacchus and thank your mother.
In this soft rock piano medley, the Backstreet Boys declare their love and appreciation for their mothers. With lyrics like "You showed me when I was young just how to grow," Hallmark could learn a thing or two from these gentlemen. When the song debuted in 1999, fans and mothers everywhere swooned.
In the late, great 2Pac's tribute to his mama, Afeni Shakur — who gave birth to him a month after being released from jail — the late rap icon says the words that every mother wants to hear: "You are appreciated."
In candid disclosure of the hardships he went through with his mother and family, Drake gratefully thanks them for helping him become the man he is today on 2011's "Look What You've Done." Ending with a recording of a loving voicemail from his grandmother, this "Take Care" track sentimentally greets "Happy Mother's Day."
