Yesterday was my mommy’s birthday! I don’t know if she reads my blog anymore, but I’m going to do something special to share how my mom’s musical preferences had an influence on me. Two weeks ago was Mother’s Day and the 24th time I have had the pleasure of celebrating Mother’s Day with my mom. About a month ago, my mom gave me a list of songs she wanted downloaded and put on four CDs. I know she thought I forgot, so I figured what better gift than to make her CDs for Mother’s Day. The idea was given an upgrade when my boyfriend won an iPod at a 5k race we ran…well, he obviously ran. I walked For Mother’s Day, I downloaded all the songs on the iPod and my mom LOVED her gift! She screamed and said the iPod was the best gift she had gotten. Obviously, it was a total hit! I played all the songs as we were preparing dinner on Mother’s Day and my mom said, “You be singing my songs more than I do.” And she shoooool is right. There were about 70+ songs that I downloaded and I thought it would be cool to share one track a day because the songs are definitely my kind of music. I want to kick off the Now That’s What My Mom Calls Music series with one of my favorite tracks from her playlist, Square Biz by Teena Marie also known as Lady T.
