On Billboard Rap, its number five, a surprising feat for a song explicitly about GAY MARRIAGE.
    • The song takes on the question of same-sex relationships and equal rights in ways that is both provocative and quietly graceful in both tone and content. Macklemore takes us from youth to adulthood in the video.  A young boy questions whether he is gay – “When I was in the 3rd grade/I thought that I was gay/Cause I could draw, my uncle was/And I kept my room straight” – yet finds that he is straight.  But as he realizes how much harm name-calling was for him as he was teased and tormented for being seen as effeminate for loving to draw  – he realizes that he needs to speak out for the margins of society and especially those who live in hiding due to their orientation.
    • As the song fades out on “Same Love”, Mary Lambert repeats the refrain from 1 Corinthians 13 “Love is patient, Love is Kind” over and over as an echoing  mantra so that the last words we hear are not merely song, but scripture.  With a musical shift that recalls a vintage era of Salvation Army brass and an off-tempo tambourine, the song is no longer disposable as most pop songs are but now woven into our collective memory by binding it to one of the most popular scripture passages evoked at wedding services.

    • Macklemore has teamed up with Bono for the AGIT8 campaign… To end world hunger.
    • I believe that Macklemore is the forefront to changing Rap music. So far, he’s already pushed boundaries and stirred conversation. His name is now etched in stone forever.
