It’s March, the days are getting longer and we quietly start to long for the warmth of spring again. Mother March is a source of inspiration and that’s why we want to honor her with five tracks in which “mamamamamamama” occurs very often.
This list of songs is nice and easy for your new spring jam. We have made the selection as diverse as possible so you can choose which “mamama” song fits best in your setlist. Of course, you don’t have to choose, after all, all five tracks are top songs.
Ma Baker – Boney M
How about this uptempo track, for example. Written in C this song looks quite simple at first sight. Yet it has multiple challenges. You can approach the chord progression of “Ma Baker” in several ways. You can follow the chords or take it up a notch by extracting the main riff from the progression. Jam along with Boney M to find out which suits you best.
Mamma Mia – ABBA
If there’s one song that is unmissable in this list, it is “Mamma Mia.” This evergreen by the Swedish disco-duo ABBA still makes our hips swing. Partly because of films like “Mamma Mia!” and “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” this song keeps popping up on the radio again and again. A lovely spring track. Grab your guitar and play along with ABBA!
Hey Mama – David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj, Baby Rexha & Afrojack
We promised you a varied buffet and we keep our word. This next spring track is written in E. This key is suitable for both metal, hip hop and even dance. Try to play along with this song. Forget that David Guetta is a DJ and follow the “Hey Mama” chords here. Simple and to the point. Experimenting is part of springtime. So why not jam to a hip-hop dance tune?
Mama’s Song – Carrie Underwood
If you are looking for a real sing-along for the fireplace than this is your track. Carrie Underwood’s “Mama’s Song” is a lovely song that’s also pretty easy to play. The track is written in D. The basic chords change at a fast pace – so this is good training for the beginner. Try to play “Mama’s Song” and see how it goes.
Poker Face – Lady GaGa
Lady GaGa’s “Poker Face” is an unexpected hit in your “mamamama” setlist that nobody sees coming. Or do they? The characteristic “mamama” comes from the song we opened this list with. Yup, Lady GaGa sampled Boney M for her track. So we are back at the beginning. This song is written in G#m, but if you put a capo on the fourth fret, miracles happen. Start playing along with “Poker Face” here. Happy jamamamamaming!
