The Top TenXW
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!
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.

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.
This song brought me to tears, I'm straight but have always had others of different lifestyles as friends and even family, I have always believed no one has the right to tell you who to love! How ridiculous to deny any love in a world filled with hate, prejudice and racism! Promote love, joy, happiness, compassion, peace and equality for this sad planet!

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.
This song made me cry first time listening to it. Macklemore brings out a whole new side of slam poetry, incorporated into his rap.V20 Comments
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.
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 is an amazing song about real problems and is more than just basketballV20 Comments
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
Like Downtown, this song is just fun and upbeat in general. - SwagFlicksV34 Comments
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!
The greats werent great because they were born painting the greats were great because they painted a lot. This song is good, inspirational and should be closer to the top.
This song brings me chills and tears to my eyes and I'm not even from Seattle. The way that the song leads into the call is unbelievable my perfect. CHILLS
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 pastV6 Comments
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"
Macklemore has been through some tough times, and you can really tell he means it when he says he regrets what he's done, and he's a encapsulated those feelings into a song that can change lives forever.
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
This song is all for the lyricsV7 Comments
First song that got me into Macklemore (although I'm still currently only playing this song as of yet) but I am going to check out his other music thanks to this gem (and this was after I heard 'Thrift Shop'. Not saying I hate it but this song is really different and what really caught my ear, so if you are fed up with generic Hip Hop and want a rapper who is literally different then you should try some Macklmore up for size! I double dare you to name me a rapper who you've heard in the last decade who has stood out more than this guy right here!
This song is like a cold lemonade on a hot summers day. It will fill you with energy and motivate you at the same time. Just an amazing song, this one should be number 1 on this list.
This song just really gets you on your feet. It has an amazing beat that's fun and energetic.
This is his best song by far. Upbeat and fun, and the chorus has one of the best instrumentals of 2015. - SwagFlicksV28 Comments
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
Interestingly, one of the best on this list so far, if only more people listened to more of Mack's earlier work.V4 Comments
Great song, I've listened to it at least 10 times today.
I've been listenijg to this everyday. Outlines my struggle and his emotion in the video is pain. Genuine to meV1 Comment
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.
This should be way higher. So good. He wanted a Cadillac so he put in the hours and got his car. So good
Nothing better than this. Always listening to thisV13 Comments
Come on guys... shake and bake. This song is underrated. Nothing to special but this has to be better than number 9.V2 Comments
This song should be higher its really good
This song is so inspiring. It should be #1!
Makes you so proud to be what you areV1 Comment
This should be #1. I'm not a fan of his "fun" songs. For example, downtown, thrift shop, penis song, and so forth. This song however, along with Starting Over and Ten Thousand are the songs that really connects to the soul.
Great song about Macklemores personal battle against alcoholism! How is this not top 10?
Overall great song about alcoholism and how it can ruin ones lifeV1 Comment
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
Make the money don't let the money make you. Its been making me reconsider my job choice
Amazing song!V1 Comment
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
Probably one of the funniest songs by Macklemore. Still really catchy
Amazing. Catchy. All around good.
Funny and actually somewhat poignant (to me anyway). If you're offeneded by it, you're probably "that guy"V2 Comments
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.
For goodness sake, it is "Jimmy Iovine" (literally pronounced 'eye-vene'). Not "Lovine".V2 Comments
I've listened to a lot of his music, this is still my favourite. Wouldn't expect it to be higher though as I understand that the majority of listeners are content with the more superficial tracks in "White Walls" and "Can't hold us". Real relatable track. "yeah, lets keep swimming in the snake pit get bit, get out then jump back into the suffocation."
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.
