One of the fun things about working for Diffuser is the opportunity to tailor my pretty broad musical tastes to fit their slightly narrower editorial sensibilities. There are lots of great songs for a “Mother” playlist, but picking the ones that were right for Diffuser? Therein lies the fun.
In no particular order, here are 10 tasty “mother” cuts that would’ve worked great for some other list. Feel free to add your own in the comments, and don’t forget to check out my Mother’s Day playlist on Diffuser.
