Mother's Day Songs and Tributes

How did Mother's Day get started?

Your Mother's Day songs and tributes have changed -- no doubt about it. You need look no further than the selections on this page to know that we have come a long way from the traditional Mother Song to YouTube salutes.

Baby Boomers may recall singing this tribute to mother when they were in grammar school.

Modern mothers might find that ditty a bit old-fashioned for their tastes. Fast-forward to the 21st Century and you have a biologist thanking his mother for her DNA.


Then you have the Shaytards -- a dad and three kids with a fourth on the way -- telling mom how much they love her while on a road trip.


Even though Mother's Day means pampering Mom, it doesn't necessarily mean that Mom gets the day off.


And finally, a poignant tribute that speaks to the eternal nature of a mother's love.
