OK, boys and girls, Mother's Day is this Sunday. That means you've got a mere day and a half to come up with something sweet for that lady who raised you (and maybe your grandma, too? She probably rules, too). In the event you've actually pushed things off to today, and haven't found yourself overwhelmed with maternal gratitude, click throughthe collection of 15 songs
to get you in the mood for Mother's Day. Download a few and see if you don't get inspired. That's what happens when we put Cheap Trick and Iron & Wine in the same list -- inspiration. --Chelsea Ide
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
