Probably not Mama Told Me Not to Come by Randy Newman (although I've already chosen two of his songs). Probably not Just Before the Battle, Mother from Tom Glazers' Treasury of Civil War Songs. Come ON! She's not THAT old!. And probably not Remember Dad on Mothers Day by the Perfect Gentlemen. I'm not even sure that's a real song by a real group, but, if it exists, I know I won't be able to resist it. Sorry, Mom.
OK, maybe some of my choices will be a little off the wall. But consider the songs that are bound to please her. Consider Mama Eu Quero, an actual Brazilian songs by...wait for it...Carmen Miranda! It means "I Want My Mama.". Consider Merle Haggard (of all people) singing Mother, the Queen of My Heart. Consider The Gospel of Mother by Pete Sutherland...well...maybe you won't consider that one. Just remember...it's the intent that counts.
So...remember...Friday not Tuesday...the 11th, not the 8th...but still Completely Different...and Completely Maternal.
