Music Monday: Thrift Shop By Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

I first heard this song a few months ago when it started showing up on one of my Pandora stations. It was love at first listen. A few days ago it came on when Evy was in the car, so I had to skip ahead to the next song because I’m a good parent. She only heard a few seconds and was all, “Oh, I love this song!” And I was like, “What the?” Then she told me it was “like the most popular song at school.”

Later that day when James got home I started playing the song. Just the intro to see what kind of a reaction it would get. You know, before Macklemore mentions the size of his you know what and before he drops any mutha f-bombs. And all be damned, within the first few seconds James was all, “I love this song!” Again, I was all, “What the?” He also said it was the most popular song at his school. I don’t know where they’re hearing this. Honestly though, I was listening to Eazy-E at that age, which is so much worse. Like way worse and I have no idea how I ever discovered that. But enough about Eazy and back to the main event.

This video has been viewed over 250 million times, which is more than impressive. Super fun video and great song. Check it out.

You might also want to take a look at this interview Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had with John Norris at SXSW. It’s great hearing artists talk about their work intelligently.
