This song sounds like ‘oh oh ah ah’ on TikTok. At first, I thought, ‘Oh, okay, the song is good,’ and then I kept on listening to it. Also, I didn’t know the name of the song. I searched on YouTube by typing ‘oo..aa song.’ YouTube suggested Imagine Dragons’ ‘Bones.’ However, ‘Bones’ by Imagine Dragons is also unique when it says, ‘Ai Ai Ya Got this feeling in my soul…’ Verbatim’s ‘Mother Mother’ sounds different. This song was featured in a TikTok video where a user was playing chess and had a final win. It was marvelous. This Verbatim song really suited the video.
Songs like this give a high school vibe. Those moments truly create a beautiful scenario. There is also a little bit of a punk mood in this song. It’s the kind of song where you can forget all your worries and just vibe with the surroundings. There are songs that bring memories back, and there are songs that make us forget everything. Verbatim’s ‘Mother Mother’ belongs to the latter category.
There could be a deep meaning, or there might not be, but when the artist gives their unique signature, the meaning fades away. There is another song titled ‘Mother Mother’ by Hayloft, and that song also has its own unique mood and meaning. Verbatim’s ‘Mother Mother’ definitely touches upon gender politics when the lyrics ask, ‘What defines a straight man’s straight?’
The meaning can be anything. What is important in music is its rhythm and tune. The question is, would you have listened to Verbatim if it sounded like a folk song? For me, the answer is no. I only listened to this song because it’s catchy and it truly gives carefree vibes. And then, when I listen to the lyrics, there is indeed a line that goes, ‘I see people dying there, but my tender age makes it hard to care.
Above all, if you want your video to be popular on TikTok, you can definitely use this song. What I have realized is that the more punk vibe a song gives, the more carefree it becomes
