What song reminds you of Mom?

With Mother's Day rapidly approaching, we're once again thinking of all the things our moms did and still do for us. For many, the (incredibly long) list includes all the amazing music they shared, or that otherwise remind us of them. So, we want to know: What song reminds you of your mom? (It's a question we've asked a handful of times over the years.)

Record a voice memo telling us about it and email it to us at allsongs@npr.org. We'll share select stories and songs in an upcoming episode of All Songs Considered.

Be sure to tell us:

  • Your first name and where you're calling from
  • The name of the song and artist
  • Why it reminds you of your mom or what's special about it to you

If you prefer, you can also tell us about it with the simple form below:

Robin Hilton is known as the host of NPR's New Music Friday podcast, the former co-host of All Songs Considered and for his name that appears in white bubble letters above every concert at the Tiny Desk, a series he helped start in 2008 with Bob Boilen and Stephen Thompson. He produced several early acts, including the second-ever performer in the series, Vic Chesnutt, and suggested naming the series Tiny Desk after Tiny Desk Unit, a band Boilen was in in 1979. He's since produced performances at the Desk by everyone from Sharon Van Etten and Son Lux to Steve Martin, Harry Styles and Chance the Rapper.
