Several months ago, we did a write-up on this song when it was made available digitally to the public. Now, 3 months later, the official video has been released, and all I have to say is wow. This audio/visual combo is so powerful, I couldn’t let it go without its own post on NSK. If you’re unfamiliar with this track, it is a piano backed, heart filled song addressing the many issues with gay rights and the overall perception of gay relationships in our society today. It really brings to light the deep, underlying stereotypes that are imbedded in our minds from a young age, and relates them to similar issues that have plagued society such as racism and religious hatred.
This is a beautiful song in every sense of the word, and, when coupled with the video, creates a strong and clear message that will provoke emotion from anyone who watches it. Another masterpiece from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
