5 on Friday -- Set 221

Spinning Friday tunes since 2010...

For anyone who wants to join in, simply choose five pieces of music and post them for other bloggers to enjoy. Then check out the set posted by the other 5 on Friday blogger -- you can sign in over at Golch Central's Rambling Stuff.

It's May, and time for my monthly feature for 5 on Friday -- The Hit Makers.

Once a month I'm going to feature the songs that launched careers. I'll be looking at different musical styles and the groups or singers from those styles who I love the best.

This month, let's look ahead to Mother's Day. Here are five of my favorite female vocalists who are also moms.

1 - Why Don't You Do Right? -- Peggy Lee with Benny Goodman -- 1942

Mom to daughter Nicki

2 - Aguas de Marco (Waters of March) -- Elis Regina with Tom Jobim -- 1974

Mom to sons Joao and Pedro, and daughter Maria Rita 

3 - Sweet Dreams(Are Made of This) -- Annie Lennox of  Eurythmics -- 1983

Mom to daughters Lola and Tali

4 - Smooth Operator -- Sade -- 1985

Mom to daughter Ila

5 - Rolling in the Deep -- Adele -- 2010

Mom to son Angelo
