Background and composition

An atypically sombre track for Aqua, My Mamma Said deals with emotions and considerations concerning the death of the mother of the first person character. The dominant instruments are the piano and the 'cello. Nystrom is the principal vocalist and her part concerns fears and reflections about her mother, while Rene Dif's part pertains to philosophical and scientific aspects of the death of the mother.

Music video

The video is mainly set in a closed room with the four members of Aqua seated around a table, amid a bed of dry leaves. Apart from the leaves, black and white dominate the clip.

Chart performance

The single reached number 4 on the Danish Singles Chart. It did not achieve similar success in other countries.
