Please note songs with the word ‘Motherfucker’ in the title are not in the spirit of the day.
Corin wrote this song after her first kid was born 9 weeks premature. The line “And I’m so sorry, For those who didn’t make it, And for the mommies who are left with their heart breaking” moves me every time.
Lots of versions of this on YT where he attempts to sing it but breaks down halfway through and can’t finish, and they’re absolutely heartbreaking.
So I’m sticking to the original celebratory version
Maybe my favourite Kate Bush song (largely because of Eberhard Weber’s amazing bass playing, but it’s a lovely song too).
An expectant mother addressing her unborn child, beautifully sung by Mara Carlyle. I think it’s more powerful for its brevity at only just over a minute and a half long, I find it incredibly moving.
