Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Mary Lambert – Same Love

I think Macklemore was the perfect guy to make this song. Respected enough that it will make all the blogs, but not so embedded in the mainstream that he would attract the ire of the internet trolls. Also eloquent enough to put into words what so many are thinking. That first line will really set a lot of people back.

What if someone told you you weren’t allowed to be with your girl because her skin was a different colour? How would that make you feel?

A certificate on paper isn’t gonna solve it all, but it’s a damn good place to start.
