Mother’s Day will always make me think of the color purple.

No, not the “The Color Purple” — the excellent Alice Walker book or the Steven Spielberg-directed film that followed. No uppercase letters needed for this reference. I’m simply talking about plain old purple itself, which was my mom’s favorite color.

Thus, I’d usually buy her something purple each Mother’s Day. It might a purple sweater, a purple scarf, a dozen purple roses or something as simple as a purple Mother’s Day card that said “I love you.” What the gift was didn’t seem to be as important to her as who it was coming from — and that I had put in enough thought and effort to find something in her favorite color.

It’s been too long since I had the occasion to buy a special purple gift, given that my awesome mom, Marguerite Harrington, died in 2012. But I’m sending this Mother’s Day playlist up to her. I tried to stick with the purple theme and include a Prince tune, but I couldn’t find one that really worked for the occasion. So, instead, I decided to kick it off with my mom’s all-time favorite artist

Besides that personal touch, this playlist is just a collection of some of the all-time best tunes about moms. So, crank it up and have a happy Mother’s Day.
