Today, Mother’s Day, if one turns on the radio one is bound to hear The Intruders’ “I’ll Always Love My Mama,” inspired by one of The Intruders’ (Kenny Gamble) Mama, Ruby. Although the song, released in 1973, didn’t make it to Number One on the Music Charts — R&B #6, Pop#36 — today it will be the Number One Song.
In the song one hears how Mama is “one of a kind” and that “you only get one, you only get one.”
Anyone who has never herd this song must Google it today; watch one of the videos or read the lyrics.
To all the Mothers: Happy Mother’s Day!
