Songs About Moms That’ll Make Her Day

Want to show mom you really care? Forget about jewelry and flowers. How about letting her listen to the music SHE likes in the car for a change? (We know all about those times she listened to Eminem and AC/DC for you!) Now, you can just make a Mother’s Day playlist of her favorite songs (and you don’t even have to leave the house).

It’s so easy with our free store-and-play music apps. Once your music library is uploaded to our MyMusicCloud portal, you can pick and choose her favorite ballads, country music songs or musical showtunes from your collection, or browse our online music store for songs she’ll adore.

Is your mom wild about Aretha Franklin? Can’t resist country crooner Martina McBride? Or maybe she loves Paul Anka? They’re all in our store ready to download. Simply create a playlist, select a song you want to add, and click the “+” symbol to attach it. (You don’t even have to listen to them!)

In no time, you have a custom-mixed Mother’s Day soundtrack you can play on any laptop, smartphone, tablet, or even Smart TV. Play it when she wakes up Sunday morning, or on your way to brunch. What a cool and thoughtful surprise!

Not sure where her musical tastes fall? Here are some ideas to get you started:

10. A Song for Mama – Boyz II Men

9. Coat of Many Colors – Performed by Shania Twain and Dolly Parton

8. Mama – Spice Girls

7. Never Too Far Away – Mariah Carey

Don’t Wait for Apple Watch. Get the Free U2 Album on Your Wrist Now!

How cool was Apple’s Tuesday product event? The tech giant blew the roof off by announcing newer and bigger iPhones, introducing the Apple watch, and then bringing out Bono and the boys to give away U2’s latest album, “Songs of Innocence,” free to iPhone and iTunes users.

It’s all good news for “iFans.” Except for. Well, it’s just that … Now, you have to camp outside an Apple store, or fight the trolls online, to pre-order your iPhone 6 (starting today), and just pray to the ghost of Steve Jobs that they don’t sell out before they ship on Sept. 19. And those cool Apple watches? They’re not out till 2015.

Or — just a thought — you could check out the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches, which are already in stores and do more things than the Apple watch. Both have sleek square faces, but instead of a clunky knob on the side like Apple’s, the Gear 2 has a button on the watch face, plus a 2-megapixel camera. (Apple’s watch doesn’t offer a camera.)

Besides enabling you to place calls and text, the Samsung Gear watches free you to listen to your entire digital music collection anywhere with the MyMusicCloud app. Our free music storage app works on- and off-line, and syncs your music across any smart device – tablet, phone, laptop, Smart TV – regardless of brand (Apple, Android, Blackberry, Windows, etc.).

With a Bluetooth headset, you can kick it to Kenny Chesney, or whomever you love, via your Samsung Gear 2 and cell phone. And that free U2 album? You can only hear it in iTunes, right? Nope.

Once you’ve downloaded “Songs of Innocence” to iTunes, you can easily add it to your MyMusicCloud library and listen on any smart device. Just launch the MyMusicCloud app and hit the “Import Music” button (it looks like an arrow pointing up). Once you’ve installed our Sync Agent software, it automatically imports it for you.

Or you can manually select the album from your iTunes music folder on your hard drive and import it. That way, your music is always together in one place, not scattered around different devices. See how easy it is to listen to your music on all your gadgets in our demo video below.

Or you could just stick with only Apple devices, and wait, because waiting is cool too, right?

In no time, you have a custom-mixed Mother’s Day soundtrack for your special lady. Play it when she wakes up Sunday morning, or on your way to brunch. What a cool and thoughtful surprise. Kind of like musical macaroni.

A Cloud-Based Music Service for Android Users

Are you one of the 300 million new mobile phone users who have switched to an Android phone? If so, you’re going to need a place to store your music, and MyMusicCloud is just the app you need.

With MyMusicCloud, you can take your music collection anywhere: to the beach, park, and even places you’re stuck waiting for hours, like doctor’s offices or the DMV. Our cloud-based delivery service syncs all your music effortlessly across any device or platform, from your PC to your Droid phone, around the world. Access your favorite house music even if you’re offline on the subway.

Android phones are now the fastest-selling phones on the planet. On a blog post from February 2012, Google’s senior vice president of mobile, Andy Rubin, revealed that Google’s phone partners (HTC, LG Electronics, Motorola and Samsung) have activated “over 850,000 phones and tablets per day” – up from 500,000 per day in June 2011.

At MyMusicCloud, we welcome all the brand-new Android users. But Apple, Blackberry, and Nokia fans needn’t feel left out, because our cloud-based music delivery service works just as smoothly across your operating systems too.

Have your music library synced across any device, play your music on one device and pick up where you left on another, and create and play customized playlists from almost anywhere: whether you’re running at the gym to Maroon 5, perking up your morning commute with Michael Bublé, or playing your favorite Adele tunes to a friend’s wine and book party.
