Sad lament for my mom who died in '86 of Lou Gehrig's disease.
"The Vinyl District" June 8, 2011:
The song that took my heart is “Mama,” McCarty’s ode to his mother, who he lost to Lou Gehrig’s disease. His melodic guitar hook and bittersweet lyrics slither into my emotions, open up my heart, wind their way around my thoughts and make my eyes tingle. Simply, the song is poignantly beautiful.
