9. Abba - Does your mother know

Björn on vocals, and the lyrics suggest that he knew all about certain musicians of his time and girls who were much too young for them.

Abba with a male singist sound worryingly like Status Quo, as one assumes that Suzi Quatro had noticed when she decided to do a cover.

10. Paul Simon - Mother and child reunion

Paul Simon went to Jamaica to record a reggae song, and having bumped into Whitney Houston's mom on the beach he got her to do backing vocals. Mr Simon was friends with Jimmy Cliff, who got Toots and the Maytals to come and be the band on the record.

Fun fact - the reunited mother and child were allegedly a chicken and egg dish served to Paul Simon at a Chinese restaurant.

Also, while we're at musicians cavorting with girls of questionable age:

11. Queen - Tie your Mother down

Basically the only thing that makes the lyrics semi-forgivable is what Big Fat Fanny did to skinny lads in the nursery.

14. Neil Reid - Mother of Mine

Scottish child vocalist and winner of Opportunity Knocks, he was the youngest artist ever to top the UK albums chart. Two years after this number charted his voice broke and he wisely gave up singing professionally. He's now more gainfully employed as an independent financial adviser.

Even Noel Edmonds was compelled to admit that he slagged this off when it was in the charts. He later apologised to Mr. Reid.

In sharp contrast...

15. Tears For Fears - Mother's Talk

This nuclear war-themed tune revolves around the old wives' tale that if you pull a face too long the 'wind might change and you could stay like it'. In keeping with TFF's self-critical reputation they don't consider it one of their best.

On a similar note to young Master Reid...

16. Heintje - Mama

Don't say I didn't warn you...
