The Top Ten

Can't Hold Us
This is my favorite song I listen to nowadayys. I love macklemore's rapping <3 I love the singing part too! MAcklemore is the best rapper ever :D
This should definitely be #2. It's way better than same love. Thrift shop is still #1 for me though
Come on really? Same love! Really! Stupid song! This song inspires me to do my best and to never give up! It motivates me to get stuff done! A masterpiece by Professor Mac!
[Newest]Love this song (the music video is better then just the song) because it has such an epic feel to it. You can't help but get pumped after listening to it. Now again, if you're going to choose a version, go with the music video because the opening and ending have a better feel to it.

2Same Love
So inspiring to people that like the other sex, and it shows us all how it is okay to be different, because it is who we are in the world, an after all, in the fine words of Mary Lambert:

I can't change, even if I try, even if I wanted to...
Number 3? Really, had this song never existed, chances are, I never would've came out, because this is what I made my parents listen to while I did that. If this song never existed, I'd be in the closet my whole life, never would've gotten married to the love of my life (Chris, and my life would be a major bum. This song seriously needs to be higher.
Why is this number 2? This should be number 1. It has lots of meaning unlike thrift shop which has a good beat but absolutely no meaning.
[Newest]Can't Hold Us and Thrift Shop are jokes. Just pointless rap songs that you can't understand, with a good beat. Same Love is a beautiful song with a great message. 👭

3Thrift Shop
I'm gonna pop some tags only got 20 dollars in my pocket I'm I'm I'm huntin for a come up this is F... Ing awesome once you get it in your head it's stuck there
I really love Can't Hold Us, but Thrift Shop is just amazing. I have to admit, Can't Hold Us made more sense and involved more skill, but still, something about Thrift Shop is totally epic.
Thrift shop is way better then can't hold us
[Newest]The first song that I liked of macklemore was this this and this...

In my opinion this is the best song of Macklemore. I've listen to it like a 1000 times and I can still hear it without getting bored. This song has helped me a lot of seeing the truth of this consumerism world I recoment to you all to listen this song at least once in your life
This song is beyond amazing. The verses are great and the chorus is outstanding. I love the sound and feeling of this song so much.
Addresses many real life problems and is in some ways inspiring. hell of a song and makes you think about life. if you want inspiration listen closely to Ten Thousand Hours by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, if you want to be great, take Ten Thousand Hours to heart.
[Newest]This song is just the best song

This song saved my life, back in 1988 I time travelled and was sent to here. I was going to buy a boat, but then I heard this song and decided not to buy the boat. I could have drowned! Anyway I studied the lyrics in this song and realised if you sing it backwards and then spell your name in Chinese you go back in time! I am writing this back in good old 1988! Thanks Macklemore for this stunning tribute to time travellers
This isn't music. This is inspiration for life...
Great song, so much meaning behind it, reaches out to your soul.
Has the most meaning story behind it. The song is about Macklemore's drug addiction and how rappers influence kids lives.
[Newest]Very inspirational and emotional (especially the version featuring Fences)

6White Walls
The only reason this song isn't in the top ten is because no one knows it! Everyone has to listen to this song its definitely top 5!
Best macklemore song by far. Lacks some of the deepness that others possess but it's music video makes up for that. hella funny.
I love macklemore, he never disappoints
[Newest]This song is epic! I have no idea that why is this song not in the top 5

#3 behind my oh my and wings
Come on guys... shake and bake. This song is underrated. Nothing to special but this has to be better than number 9.

8And We Danced
Big. Long. Pick. Strong
I am OBSESSED with this song, his voice just sounds completely different than it normally does and I just LOVE this song!
This Song is flippin AWESOME! Not as cool as Thrift Shop I Admit but still give it a shot... My best friend's cousin wasn't kidding: Macklmore is cool...
[Newest]To have a really really really good time listen this song!

9Ten Thousand Hours
Should be closer to the top. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis spent over 10, 000 hours working on The Heist.
Most inspiring song about how hard work pays off!
Love it!

10Victory Lap

The Contenders

11My Oh My
Waayy too underrated. I get chills every time I listen to this
My Oh My is just an amazing song. It talks about his history and I think that this is enough to make it reach top 6
My Oh My talks about history and no rappers actually rap about the past

12Inhale Deep
Got me through a lot of hard times. If it wasn't for this song and starting over I wouldn't be six months clean. By far best song
One of the best songs I have ever listened to. This song is not on top only because not many people know it.
Finally made me realize that I no longer need weed to be happy... That instead I simply need to focus on living my life

13Make the Money
The music in this song is just amazing. I love it 'because this song is great and we should learn from the lyrics, which tell us the truth.
Honestly think this song needs more attention. Amazing from start to finish
Love this never get enough of it

Absolutely one of his top songs... hope more people hear this song honestly
An unknown song which I think it's the best he has done
His greatest ever song

15Thin Line
This is so amazing! One of those songs you put on repeat and listen to over and over until you get bored of it. #4 behind Thrift Shop, Can't Hold Us and Wings.
Pleasee listen to this song. It is truly amazing. Give it a chance. The chorus is amazing. It's probably the best chorus in all of his songs.

16The End
This song is a masterpiece. It is so full of emotion. It is however one of Macklemore's slower songs.

17Irish Celebration
This song is so inspiring. It should be #1!
This song should be higher its really good

18Hold Your Head Up
The moment I heard "Inhale deep" I added it here and the moment I am listening "Hold your head up" I am adding it here. One of the best song!
Great sing from the album the language of my world

19Jimmy Lovine
So catchy, good meaning not just some rap about greatness and all that crud. Macklemoore is the best rapper his raps have real good meaning.
Last 45 seconds are the best part

20Love Song

21Neon Cathedral
Great song about Macklemores personal battle against alcoholism! How is this not top 10?

22Remember High School

23Fake ID
Insane good but not well known

24Feel It

25Starting Over
This song is amazing! It is about his relapse with drugs and you can just hear the emotion he puts into it. It has a great beat, great lyrics, and a great chorus. I wish more people knew about this song!
"And you know what pain looks like,
When you tell your dad you relapsed then look him directly into his face"
It is a really great song that you can tell he really put a lot of his feelings into. And a really great beat to it
Nobody knows this song but it is incredible. Listen to overside then starting over. I listen to it on replay. If I can be an example of getting sober, I can be an example of starting over
[Newest]Definitely one of his best

26A Wake

27The Penis Song
His first album didn't get as much recognition and popularity as it deserved but this song is AMAZING! Catchy, artistic, clever, lyrical, and bound to make anybody with a decent sense of humour laugh. Even better than the name suggests. Should be in at least top 15 in my opinion.
This song is just amazing

Probably one of the funniest songs by Macklemore. Still really catchy
Funny and actually somewhat poignant (to me anyway). If you're offeneded by it, you're probably "that guy"


This song is so amazing its really good if your in depression or if your struggling with addiction
Says everything I don't have the power to say. My go to song in my low points.
It's a great song.

Even though I think this song comes close to house music. It still should be higher on the list
Why this song wasn't added to the list? This is the best party/funny song I've ever listned to and for me it's much much better than 'And we danced'

32Cowboy Boots
This song should be #4 at least. "And we drink and get older. And some of us even try to get sober".
This song just is so amazing.

33Welcome to the Culture
Pretty Awesome Song! I like this song

34I Said Hey

35City Don't Sleep

An inspiring song for those of us who are struggling with religion and spirituality.

37As Soon As I Wake Up

38The Town
He's amazing and this song has the most meaningful lyrics and a great beat that cannot get out of your head
Just a nice song which puts you in a prime mood.
Seriously? Number 37? NO, should be hire. It's his love song to his upbrining in Seattle, no Seattle = no Mack
