About this song: Mother

Mother is a song by the British progressive rock band Pink Floyd. It was released on The Wall album in 1979.The song switches from a quiet dynamic to a louder one, expanding its instrumentation from acoustic guitar and solo voice to include (by the song's end) reed organ, piano, drums, electric bass, vocal harmony, and electric guitar. At five minutes, 35 seconds in length, the song has a minimal introduction, consisting only of sharp inhalation and rapid exhalation before the first verses are sung by Roger Waters.
