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

6. In My Daughter’s Eyes – Martina McBride

5. I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack

4. Already Gone – Sugarland

Wishing you and the moms in your life a very Happy Mother’s Day.

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.

MyMusicCloud Introduces a Convenient Web Toolbar

Paying bills online or reading work emails is a lot more fun with your favorite songs playing in the background, isn’t it? But who wants to have a dozen browser windows open at once?  Not us and we’re betting not you either. That’s why we’re helping you multitask with an exciting new product launch.

This week, MyMusicCloud is unveiling a new browser toolbar* to help you easily listen to your music collection, discover great music store promotions, and share songs with your Facebook friends without ever leaving the page you’re reading. No more juggling multiple tabs and windows while trying to play DJ.

Go ahead and give it a try. As a little thank you, we’ll even throw in 1 free gigabyte of music storage for our cloud-based music delivery service, just for trying the new toolbar app. (That’s more than 200 songs.)

But that’s not the only cool insider tool MyMusicCloud offers. Stumped by Nicki Minaj’s latest rhyme? Or trying to remember the words to the Beatles’ classic “I am the Walrus”? We make finding both of these things super easy: With the click of a button, we fetch the lyrics for you. No need to wonder, or open a separate browser window, or surf YouTube hoping someone transcribed the song accurately. Bam! It’s done.

And don’t forget, you can still sync your Dropbox music files with our cloud-based music delivery service. Rather than relying on an internet connection to stream songs every time you want to listen, you can play them offline too. Unlike cloud storage services on Google, Amazon, and Apple, Dropbox and MyMusicCloud are also available globally from Australia to Taiwan and beyond.

Tell us what you think of our new toolbar or any of these functions below.

*The toolbar is available for Windows OS users, and runs on Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers.

Help MyMusicCloud to go viral! And Get Free Storage as a Thank You

Here at MyMusicCloud, we love marketing our cloud-based music delivery service. In the process, we get to discover new artists, receive comments from satisfied customers, and even follow music festivals around the world.

But our own marketing doesn’t hold a candle to yours. We can brag, get the word out, and circulate all of the fun that’s inherent in a world filled with accessible, awesome, diverse, and up-to-date music. But the best testimonial comes from you. Your friends and family know you, and they trust you. Put in a good word for our music service to your friends and family, and it’s 100 times stronger than anything we can say about ourselves. Wouldn’t you agree?

That’s why we’re asking you to help us go viral. Invite your friends using our special link on Facebook, Twitter, email, and MyMusicCloud web app. And we’ll thank you for it.

See, here’s the deal:

  • For every friend that completes the registration process, you’ll receive 250MB of additional storage. That’s dozens of songs—just for getting them to sign up!
  • Get 12 friends to register, and you can earn up to 3GB of additional storage—all for free. That’s over 600 songs of free listening on any device, any time you want to.

Share away, and get rewarded with free storage. And then smile as your friends and family thank you for another wonderful recommendation. Log into your account, click on the promo banner on the top right, and spread the word!
