New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Green Light Go)
Sometimes we're so consumed by looking for someone to love us that we forget to give what we are looking for. Remind yourself of the times we were loved when we least deserved it. Remember hearing the words "I'm so disappointed in you" from your Mother? Looking back, you knew that through your mistakes, she never loved you any less. This Mother's Day, remember that her love for you is unconditional.
"Momma" by Armand Margjeka captures a figurative conversation between a mother and son. "Guess I lied" by The Qualia explores being an ambitious young person feeling trapped or restricted, because sometimes, Mother doesn't always know best-but she still loves you! And that's exactly what "Heart's Desire" by The Morning Birds shows, that "this kind of love is greater than all the star above."
I want to encourage at least one person to think of one time they've felt loved, betrayed, or hurt, and extend a gesture of love to someone else. It's not how much love you get, but how much you can give. So give your mother something special this Mother's Day.

Song: "Momma" from Margo Margo
Release date: August 9, 2011
"Momma is a figurative conversation between a mother and son who
due to circumstance haven't seen each other in years. This was written based on the last 10 years of my life not being able to see my mother and here we are both trying to make sense of the separation, but basically this is me trying to justify my pursuing something as a sacrifice."

Song: "Guess I Lied" from Memorial Gore
Release Date: June 14th 2011
"While I was writing the song I was thinking about how hard it is for a lot of the people that are around my age to figure out how to be functional adults... the room available to people around my age to find a suitable identity is just so small."
"For me, that's sort of what the song is about - being an ambitious young person, trapped by an older generation that refuses to give you any opportunities to be a real adult, and then endlessly browbeats and criticizes you for your stunted development."
