Best Macklemore Songs

The Top Ten

1 Can't Hold Us Can't Hold Us Cover Art

Out of every song he's done, this one hits you in your would, to where every line is just epic and grand.

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.

2 Same Love Same Love Cover Art

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!

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.

3 Otherside Otherside Cover Art

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.

Honestly this song tells a story. It makes you cry. It makes you realize what's wrong in life and what we need to make better. Drugs are a bug problem in the world and kill people daily. Otherside is a song to listen to. It's the best.

4 Wing$

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.

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

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.

If you've ever played basketball or.. hell... lived life, then this song is for you. If you're not into rap, then this song will change that. It moved me to do what I dreamed of when I was a child, and continues to motivate me to this day. If possible, watch the music video. It's impact on my life is incredible, and I hope it does the same for you and anyone else out there.

5 Thrift Shop Thrift Shop Cover Art

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

The guy with really deep pipes and sings the chorus is cool.

6 Ten Thousand Hours Ten Thousand Hours Cover Art

Should be closer to the top. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis spent over 10, 000 hours working on The Heist.

An amazing song. Their best in my opinion. Can't hold us and through shop are great, but I've heard them so Many times they have kinda lost their appeal.

Most inspiring song about how hard work pays off!
Love it!

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.

7 My Oh My My Oh My Cover Art

A great song about childhood baseball memories, I wish a rapper would make one about the Yankees

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

Waayy too underrated. I get chills every time I listen to this

8 Downtown Downtown Cover Art

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.

I love this song! So unique and fun and fresh! One of Macklemore's best by far

This is his best song by far. Upbeat and fun, and the chorus has one of the best instrumentals of 2015.

9 Starting Over Starting Over Cover Art

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

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

10 Inhale Deep Inhale Deep Cover Art

One of the best songs I have ever listened to. This song is not on top only because not many people know it.

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

Finally made me realize that I no longer need weed to be happy... That instead I simply need to focus on living my life

Probably the best most underrated song I know, I want more people to know it

The Contenders

11 White Walls White Walls Cover Art

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

I love macklemore, he never disappoints

12 Gold Gold Cover Art

#3 behind my oh my and wings

Best song ever

Come on guys... shake and bake. This song is underrated. Nothing to special but this has to be better than number 9.

NEVER HEARD IT IT IS A GOOD SONG

13 Irish Celebration Irish Celebration Cover Art

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 are

One of the best

14 Hold Your Head Up Hold Your Head Up Cover Art

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

Just so thoughtful and motivational :-)

15 Neon Cathedral Neon Cathedral Cover Art

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 life

My favorite Macklemore song to date, this should be #1 or at least top 3

16 Make the Money Make the Money Cover Art

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.

Make the money don't let the money make you. Its been making me reconsider my job choice

Honestly think this song needs more attention. Amazing from start to finish

Love this never get enough of it

17 Victory Lap Victory Lap Cover Art
18 Brad Pitt's Cousin Brad Pitt's Cousin Cover Art

Amazing

19 American

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"

So. Flippin'. Funny. Not only that, but still relevant to politics... Way to go, Mack.

20 Jimmy 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

Fix Jimmy Lovine to Jimmy Iovine

For goodness sake, it is "Jimmy Iovine" (literally pronounced 'eye-vene'). Not "Lovine".

21 Thin Line Thin Line Cover Art

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.

22 Vipassana Vipassana Cover Art

This song still pops into my head when all others have faded (of Macklemore's).

Absolutely one of his top songs... hope more people hear this song honestly

One of his best. can't believe people like anything off the heist more

An unknown song which I think it's the best he has done

23 Glorious Glorious Cover Art

Great song and done it for his grandma

Amazing song

I could like play this song a hundred times over and not get tired of it.Inspirational rap and the chorus is amazing it lifts up my spirits.

Can't believe this isn't in the top 5! belter song! total feel good vibe!

24 Dance Off Dance Off Cover Art

Love this song! Such a good beat, and really pumps me up. Helps me with problems. I'm feeling bad and I listen to Macklemore. I could vote for Can't Hold Us, Thrift Shop, Wing$, Same Love or Downtown, but this needs a bump, amazing song.

This is my legit favorite song! I honestly don't get why it's down at 22.

This song is amazing! Com pen on guys vote for this song it really needs a bump up higher!

So catchy, should be #1

25 Growing Up (Sloane's Song)

Definitely my new favorite by Macklemore! Such a happy and relaxing song, the lyrics have a big message behind them and Ed Sheeran is there to top it all off. I love it.

One of my favourite songs

Such a thoughtful song

Hits me in the feels
