Squamish Valley Music Festival: Pick of the Week Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

In the lead up to the Squamish Valley Music Festival, each Thursday we’ll be sharing a track from an artist on the line up. This week, for the INAUGURAL SQUAMISH TRACK THURSDAY, I give you  Same Love by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

We all know Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ catchy first hit Thrift Shop off their album The Heist (“this is f’ing awesome…”), but I would venture that this song is even better. Sure it’s not a club banger or a dance tune, but the rhymes are smart and the message is wonderful. I like that they have chosen to break out of the typical rap mould on this song. And Mary Lambert’s feature vocals are killer.
Give it a listen.
