Same Love

I’ve been inspired by The Coyote Thistle this week. She’s a great blogger from L.A. who recently reorganized her blog and has added a series called Tunes Tuesdays. For today’s post, I’m going to expand my horizons.

I’m not much of a music buff; don’t get me wrong, I always have my iTunes shuffling. But when it comes to knowing about cool music, I’m usually a step behind. Some of my favorites are Billy Joel, John Mayer, Norah Jones, Billie Holiday, etc. But as a member of this millenium generation – or whatever we call it – I’m often going through the Top 10 on iTunes to know what’s up.

When I was in Bologna, one of my friends introduced me to “Same Love” by Macklemore. I was skeptical, because although I love ridiculously jamming out to “Thrift Shop,” Macklemore seemed to be kind of someone to overlook.

This song changed my mind, and I think you’ll understand why.

When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same, but that’s not important
No freedom till we’re equal, damn right I support it
