We can and should take this time to celebrate the marvelous moms who are with us now and those who may not be here but are always in our thoughts. Songs about women, mothers, and children are what we're sending out along with our love to moms around the world this weekend!
The holiday representing the Pagan tribute to Spring and the Christian legend of rebirth is celebrated this weekend, Easter it is! It is a time to take joy in the gift of life and its regeneration. So this weekend's music thread is dedicated to songs about the cycle of life, nature and joy.
Recording their first song in 30 years, Pink Floyd (featuring two of the three surviving members of Pink Floyd, David Gilmour and Nick Mason), plays background behind the Ukrainian singer from the band Boombox, Andriy Khlyvnyuk, and his rendition of a Ukrainian ballad, "Hey Hey Rise Up". The song's profits go to help Ukraine. So this weekend's music thread is for songs dedicated to the incredibly brave and terribly suffering people of Ukraine.
