Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Didn't even know this artist a week ago but I've heard two great songs (and great videos) from two different sources since then.  They are on totally opposite ends of the spectrum.  "Thrift Shop" is a bouncy, hilarious, sassy celebration of looking fantastic on a very small budget.  "Same Love" is a heartfelt, intimate portrayal of a young gay man.  Enjoy them both.

  1. Actually, "Same Love" is written from Macklemore's perspective of being a straight man who is fully supportive of same-sex marraige and whose uncle is gay. Nonetheless, both tunes are excellent! Also... Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be hitting Des Moines in December. Mark your calendar!
