"Mama" was the fourth single off the Spice Girls' debut album, Spice. It was released as a double-A side along with the Comic Relief music video for "Who Do You Think You Are". The single sold in excess of 600,000 copies in the UK.
Mama was a weekly Maxwell House-sponsored CBS television dramedy series which ran from July 1, 1949 until March 17, 1957.
"Mama" was the first single from Genesis' 1983 self-titled album (often referred to as the "shapes album" or simply "Mama", after the first track). Instantly recognizable from its harsh drum machine introduction, which leads into minimalist synthesizer lines in minor keys and finally Phil Collins' reverb-laden voice, "Mama" serves notice that the album which follows will be considerably darker than previous efforts.
