My Favourite Love Songs about Mother

Here are some of my Favourite Loves Songs about Mother. Some are old ones, and some are delightful ones I have never heard before.

1. I dreamed about Mama last night – Hank Williams – my favourite love song about mother

Here is a special one that brings back lots of memories. One night when I was staying with my mother-in-law, and I came home late, she was waiting at the door ready to beat me! That was a big shock. My mother never did that.

2. I’ve just told Mama goodbye – Hank Williams

When we were by my Mother’s bed, my wife kept telling me to tell my Mother that I forgive her. It was very difficult for me. It took a week before I said it, and then she died that night.

3. Flowers for Mama – George Jones

I once knew a guy who told me that he wish he had given flowers to his mother while she was alive.

4. Will my Mother know me there? – Mariska Hargitay

Her mother is Jane Mansfield. Mariska acts in a TV series.

5. When Mama sang the angels stopped to listen – George Jones

This is a very touching song. Listen to the words.

6. Mama’s hands – George Jones

These words are very powerful. Give it a listen.

7. I.O.U., Mom- Jimmy Dean

I saw Jimmy sing this one on TV, and I bought the record many years ago. I always think of it when I need clean underwear! The other day I was thinking of these words: “Don’t scratch it or it won’t get well.” I still have that problem. This is still one of my favourite love songs about mother.

8. That Old Rocking Chair – Mac Wiseman

Yesterday the power went out for about three hours, so I ended up singing and playing the guitar for a while. This is the second song I sang, and it touched my heart so much. It brought back so many memories. Lots of regrets concerning my mother. It is so tough getting old.

9. I havent seen Mama in years – Mac Wiseman

I have just heard this song for the first time, and I like it. She knew his footsteps.

10. I want to stroll over heaven with you – Alan Jackson

This one should maybe be in the Mama section, because his Mama is in the audience. A very nice song.

As you listen to these favourite love songs about mother, remember to love your mother, no matter how much she criticizes you. Down deep, she really does love you.

Elvis Presley – Variety Songs

Elvis sang a variety of songs about lots of different subjects, and so I would like to share some of my favorites with you.

1. Don’t cry Daddy

This one found a place in my heart many years ago. There is a special bond of love between a parent and a child.

2. Hound Dog “live” on the Milton Berle TV Show

I love this “live” version of the song. I love the way he moves. I have a video of this, but on this clip it gives so much more. It is very funny.

The song that changed my life.

4. Mean Woman Blues – movie

In the movie he ends up in a fight.

5. Got a lot of livin’ to do – movie

8. Guitar Man –
Elvis Variety Songs

It is very hard to make a living playing guitar, and this songs brings it out. Written by Jerry Reed (of Smokey and the Bandit).

9. In the Ghetto

A Mac Davis song about the problems in society. It don’t look like people will ever be able to get everything right in this world.

10. Welcome to my world – photos of Graceland

These pictures of Graceland mean so much to me, that for a long time I have been meaning to put them on here. It makes me feel so close to Elvis, as my memory goes back all those years to when I was there. It feels like home!

11. Tour of Graceland 2009

I have enjoyed going through this tour too. Hope you like it.

12. Welcome to Graceland

I love the aerial view, and the picture of the music gates with the house in the background. So beautiful.

13. Tour of Graceland – Part 1

There is a whole series of these parts, that are fascinating. A treasure for those who love Elvis.

14. That’s alright Mama

This is a ‘live’ recording at the Louisiana Hayride. It feels exciting to me.

15. Blue suede shoes

‘Live’ on a ship on the Milton Berle Show. The real thing!

Pictures of trains and girls.

17. Green green grass of home

Both versions of El and Tom Jones.

When I sing this song, in my mind I see the old house where we used to live when I was little. It brings back such lovely memories.

When I was a kid we didn’t have a dog, but we adopted a stray cat. Our friend Tony takes care of lots of stray cats, and here is his link.

19. ‘Live’ in Tupelo 1956

He really wows the crowd.

 

 

Hymns with beautiful pictures

In my heart I feel I must share some hymns with you, together with beautiful pictures and the words as well. With the passing of Whitney Houston, I am struck with the fact that life is so fragile. We can be here today, and gone tomorrow. The most important thing is to be saved, and spend eternity with the Lord, otherwise we will spend it with the devil in the lake of fire. The only way to salvation is through Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins. So we must repent of our sins, be born again by the Spirit of God, and be baptized. Please consider what I have written, and give your heart to the Lord. If you end up in hell, don’t blame me.

1. The love of God – The Mennonite Hour Singers

God’s love is so much greater than ours, and Jesus taught that we must try and have His type of love towards others.

2. What a day that will be – Sharon Bethel Quartet

This is such a lovely hymn, with such beautiful pictures.

3. Until then – His Image Singers

Stuart Hamblen wrote some realy good songs. I used to sing: “The soul of man is like a waiting eagle.”

4. ‘Til the storm passes by - Blue Rock Mennonite Youth

We all have storms in our lives, but it is how we handle them that makes the difference.

5. God will take care of you – Antrim Mennonite Choir

Those words are so comforting. Jesus said the Holy Spirit is a Comforter. I found that to be so real in my life recently. I had some problems, and while I was having a shower, I started speaking tongues out loud, and it was as if there was someone next to me comforting me.

6. His eye is on the sparrow – Mennonite Hour Singers

Although I am not a Mennonite, I want to thank the folks who sing so nicely and put up such nice visual effects. God bless y’all.

7. Amazing Grace - Antrim Mennonite Choir – Hymns with beautiful pictures

So many of these songs were written so long ago, and we are still able to enjoy them.

8. What a friend we have in Jesus - Voice of Praise Quartet

Some of these words bring so much comfort. “Take it to the Lord in prayer.” I was taking a service once when I said: “Why pray when you can worry,” and everyone burst out laughing.

9. Softly and tenderly - Altar of Praise Chorale

This song takes me way back to my teenage years. Jesus is still knocking at your heart’s door. Let Him in!

10. For those tears I died - Lebanon County Youth Chorus

I had a record of Pat Boone singing this song, then later I heard a couple sing it in a church service, and it feels so special.

11. It is well with my soul
– Mennonite Hour Men’s Chorus

I heard somewhere that the guy who wrote the song had lost his family at sea when the ship sank, so he wrote the words: “When sorrow like sea billows roll.” He says how his sins were nailed to the cross. In the Bible Paul says something about that. I think it is in Colossians.

12. Great is Thy faithfulness – Blue Rock Mennonite Youth

Such a comfort.

13. Higher ground – The Smucker Family

I love this song. When I sing it, I sing a few different words, and with a rock beat, but it is such a blessing.

14. I will sing the wondrous story – Antrim Mennonite choir

This one reminds me of my mother singing.

15. Beyond the sunset – Brothers in Hymn

This was written by a blind lady.

16. Amazing love (And can it be) – Altar of Praise Chorale

This song makes me think of a Methodist guy who used to sometimes come to our meetings.

17. Are you washed in the blood – Antrim Mennonite Choir

I grew up singing this hymn in church.

18. Blessed Assurance – Harpeth Gospel Quartet

This makes me think of Billy Graham.

19. Abide with me – Antrim Mennonite Choir

I have had such a blessing singing along with all these old hymns, with such beautiful pictures. Thank you.

20. The sweet by and by – The Mennonite Singers

Another old favorite from my childhood.

21. My God and I – His Image Singers

I first heard this song by John Hitchcock singing and playing the piano.

22. At Calvary – Adoration Ensemble

This song was running through my mind when we were in the Garden Tomb area looking over at Golgotha.

23. Yes, I know – The Mountain Anthems

A very beautiful song. I could only remember the chorus. Thank you. Jesus’ blood can make the vilest sinner clean. I was singing once at a tent meeting, and these words came out my mouth: “There could even be a murderer here tonight, but God wants to save you.” I was shocked at myself saying that, and wished I could swallow back the words. After the pastor preached, he gave an invitation for salvation, and some people responded. Then be called me over, and showed me a man who had come out. He said he was one of a gang of three that had broken into a store. One of them had killed the night watchman. The police came and caught the other two. One got hanged, and the other one got 20 years in prison. He had two bullets in his legs, but was too afraid to go to the hospital. His wife had left him, and he had two small children to look after. But God had his number.

24. ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus – Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale

Lovely song.

25. My Jesus I love Thee – The Sharon Singers

I seem to recall a verse that goes like this:

I’ll love Thee in life, I’ll love Thee in death,

And I’ll paise Thee as long as Thou lendest me breath.

And then til the death dew lies cold on my brow,

If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus ’tis now.

26. Rock of Ages – Antrim Mennonite Choir

Jesus is the rock.

27. Nearer my God to Thee – The Sharon Mennonite Singers

They say that this was the song they were playing when the Titanic went down.

28. The Lily of the valley – The Friends in Faith Quartet

This takes me way back to my childhood, but I think there is verse missing here.

29. Who am I – The Altar of Praise Chorale

I think I first heard this song by Jimmy Swaggart. Thank you for posting all these lovely songs, with such beautiful pictures. I wish I had some of these photos for my songs! Maybe one day I’ll get a camera and travel the world taking shots of the scenery. God bless you all.

30. Sweet hour of prayer

This song blessed me so much recently, so I am adding it on. There are such beautiful photos of scenery, and I imaging walking around there praying. Jesus prayed in a garden, and at other times in a deserted area, or on a mountain. I also have a gospel website, if you would like to check it out, go to: Country Gospel and Bible

 

My Favorite Love Songs by American Rock and Roll Singers

Many of them were stopped. A lot of my Favorite Love Songs are by American Rock and Roll Singers, but through many strange circumstances they were stopped. Last night I was watching a fictitious movie on TV about the early days and how people were protesting against the music. Then this morning at about 5 am, as I lay in bed, it dawned on me that the music was stopped. So I would like to share with you my thoughts on some of the artists, and one song from each.

1. Memphis Tennessee – Johnny Rivers

This is one of my favorite love songs by an American rock and roll singer.

2. Chuck Berry – Roll over Beethoven

He wrote a lot of very nice songs. In fact he wrote the previous one that was a big hit for Johnny Rivers.

3. Buddy Holly – Oh Boy

I heard this song on the radio at a friends house when I was about 11 years old. Later on we had the old 78 record. Many years later I heard that he died in a plane crash.

4. The Big Bopper – Chantilly Lace

He died in the same plane.

5. Ritchie Valens – Donna

He died in the same plane.

6. Eddie Cochran – Three steps to heaven

He died in a taxi accident in England. He tells us how to fall in love. When I was a teenager, a friend of my brother used to sing this song. It felt so exciting, as I had never had a girlfriend.

7. Fats Domino – Blueberry Hill

This was one of the standard rock and roll songs on the American TV show called Happy Days, and is still one of my favorite love songs today.

8. Ricky Nelson – There’ll never be anyone else but you for meMy Favorite Love Song by American Rock and Roll Singers

He changed his name to Rick, and also changed his record label. Some say his success changed because of the British Invasion. When he later revitalized his career, he died in a plane crash.

9. Elvis Presley – Jailhouse Rock

Elvis was sent to the army at the height of his career. This was the very first rock and roll song I ever heard. I was about 11 years of age at a friends house, when he put the record on. I had never heard drums or guitars before, and it gripped me so tightly, and never let go!

10. Jerry Lee Lewis – Great balls of fire

A scandal broke out about his 13 year old wife when he was in England, which downed his career for many years.

11. Fabian – Like a Tiger

When I was young they played this fast moving record at the roller rink. I just loved it so much, and would skate as fast as I could. He apparently had a lot of setbacks, and one of them was to do with payola. I am not sure how all that stuff works.
