Can't Hold Us

    Can't Hold Us by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis feat. Ray Dalton was a very popular song in the summer. It was pronounced the song of 2013. I always loved this song. It was super catchy and fun to "rap" (I was no good at the rapping part). This song was always stuck in my head during summer. It made me want to be a rebel (I don't know why). But good thing I never was one. Now I'm going to tell you the top 3 things I love about this song.

1. The rap. I'm not a rapper at ALL! I know raps are really hard to memorize because they are so fast that you have to know  it inside out. Macklemore always makes songs and even raps very emotional with all the inspiring words. In this song if you listen to the rap you can hear bits and pieces of beautiful lyrics. That's what I love about all of Macklemore's raps.

2. The message. This is the same as the first paragraph. The bits and pieces of the song and rap as well. For example:
Trust me. On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T .........

But sometimes they are not so good. After the INDEPENDENT part it get's not as good for school purposes. But songs like Same Love have that emotion.

3. The collab. This song is with Ray Dalton and he sings the chorus. That is my most favorite part of the song so I am grateful to have him sing that or else I don't know what it will sound like without him. But it just add a nice touch to the song so I like it.

Those are the top 3 reasons why I love this song.
