Alicia Keys

If you still haven’t bought your mum a nice card or bunch of flowers don’t worry, we have the perfect solution for you… crack open iTunes, get yourself a blank disk and make her a ‘To Mum, With Love’ CD.

Whilst she’ll be convinced that it’s all entirely you’re idea and you’re the best daughter / son in the entire world, you won’t have to spend hardly any money at all - winner. Just be careful not to tell your brothers or sisters though, as they might read this and do the same thing. I suppose you can just blame it on your sibling psychic ability though.

So here are our top songs for this mothers day, watch them in our fantastic player below, or just download them from iTunes.
