Your mom probably knows a thing or two about a good record. This little playlist is inspired by the tracks our mommas likely grooved to in the seventies. These songs give us with a healthy dose of girl power, soothe heartbroken souls, and just make us want to dance. Indulge your mom in a bit of nostalgia, and share this list with her—trust us, she’ll appreciate it.
