It’s been nearly 24 years since my brothers and I lost our Mom, so as you can imagine, Mother’s Day has ranked among my least favorite days of the year for quite awhile. In the five or so years since Sizzla’s hit was released, though, the song has helped to make the day a bit brighter for me. In the lyrics and rhythms I’m reminded of the good times and the special relationship we shared.
Capleton’s more recent track is just now making its way into my iPod, though I can imagine from the video below that it will have a similarly positive effect.
So, check out both videos and add some sweet reggae sounds to your Mother’s Day celebrations this year.
