With Mother’s Day approaching this Sunday, what could be more appropriate.  There are a lot more than 12 songs about moms but I’ve narrowed it down to a dozen hits that celebrate mother’s everywhere.  See if you can match these artists with their hits about mama:  The Rolling Stones, B.J. Thomas, The Shirelles, Paul Simon, Three Dog Night, The Jackson Five, Loggins and Messina, Queen, Marvin Gaye, Elton John, Ernie K. Doe, and Dr. Hook.  With only one exception, all  songs cracked the top 10.  In order of popularity here they are.

12. MAMA – B.J. THOMAS

11.  –  MAMA CAN’T BUY YOU LOVE – ELTON JOHN

10.  –  BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY – QUEEN

9.  –  MOTHER’S LITTLE HELPER – THE ROLLING STONES
