Best Macklemore Songs

The Top Ten

1 Can't Hold Us

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.

Phenomenal song absolutely phenomenal

2 Same 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.

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!

I can�'t change, even if I trie!

3 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.

Absolutely amazing song, I get chills almost every time I listen to it. This song and My Oh My are one of his greats from his Heist album and are way too underrated

4 Otherside

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.

Why isn’t this number 1?

5 Thrift 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

This should be very close to number 1

6 Ten Thousand Hours

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

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

I was born in Seattle and I was only 8 when Dave Niehaus died, but my dad was always a hardcore Mariners fan, and he grew up listening to Niehaus' commentary, just like Macklemore. My dad would take my brother and I to Mariners games when we were little all the way up to now, and after they put up the statue of Dave as a tribute to him, we took a picture next to it every time we went to a game and you can watch us grow up next to him, even if it was just a statue. Beautiful tribute to a great man. Seattle! "️

8 Downtown

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

9 Starting 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"

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 lyrics

10 Inhale Deep

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

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

Great song that no one knows about

12 Gold

#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.

NEVER HEARD IT IT IS A GOOD SONG

Sooo catchy

13 Irish Celebration

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

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

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

Best song ever from Sam L

16 Make 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.

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

Amazing song!

18 Brad Pitt's Cousin

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

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

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

Should be higher. Its only down here becase no one has heard it.

23 Glorious

Great song and done it for his grandma

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.

24 Dance Off

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.

So catchy, should be #1

Awesome song.

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

A awesome..simply amazing lyrics and can listen over over and over..again..love it

26 Let's Eat
27 A Wake

How isn't this song in at least top ten?!?! It's probably the best song Macklemore ever made

The second verse is probably one of the best I have ever heard.

28 Cowboy Boots

This song should be #4 at least. "And we drink and get older. And some of us even try to get sober".

My personal favorite but I could have voted for Can't Hold Us, Downtown or Kevin...

It's their best song... And not even in the top10 -.-

This song just is so amazing.

29 The End

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

30 White Privilege II

Should be #1, such an inspiring message. Makes me feel grateful for what I have.

This song would be in the top ten! It's amazing!

31 Kevin

So meaningful and shows that our country is creating our own demons. Great song, why has nobody bothered to add this yet?

This should be number one considering our country is losing control of the issue. I love it

So poignant and meaningful. Sad, but touching and eye-opening

Should be in the top 10

32 Good Old Days

A very moving and emotional song, reminiscing about younger and more simple times but also reminding us that we must cherish each day before we miss them too. Kesha is the perfect choice to help Macklemore on this track. She adds great vocals that pair great with the piano part that makes it even more emotional.

Best song ever!

33 Love Song
34 Fake ID

This is legitimately the coolest rap of all time, so underrated

Listening to this just makes me laugh

Insane good but not well known

35 Drug Dealer

Truly amazing - Hater

I've been listenijg to this everyday. Outlines my struggle and his emotion in the video is pain. Genuine to me

THE BEST SONG EVER

36 Light Tunnels

So true

37 Wednesday Morning

Great song, I've listened to it at least 10 times today.

I love this song. When I heard this song for the first time, I could feel a lot of good meanings.

38 Feel It
39 The 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

Laugh out loud craest

40 Remember High School
41 Growing Up
42 Marmalade

Awesome piano beat

Great lyrics

Whippin it like marmalade

43 Fallin

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.

Mellow and beautiful. Sure gets my eyeballs sweating a bit... - keycha1n

It's a great song.

44 The 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.

It sounds disgusting, but it is hands down the funniest song I've ever heard in my life. - keycha1n

Simply amazing should be #1

Funny

45 Castle

Even though I think this song comes close to house music. It still should be higher on the list

I thought Can't Hold Us was their best song. I was so wrong.

This song is tits

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'

46 Welcome to the Culture

Pretty Awesome Song! I like this song

47 Arrows
48 I Said Hey
49 City Don't Sleep
50 Church

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