Is Macklemore’s Thrift Shop a Commentary on Society? [VIDEO]
Have you REALLY listened to Macklemore‘s Thrift Shop? The first few times your hear it, it feels like pure pop candy: catchy and totally singable. The next couple of listens, you start catching some of the lyrics, like the one about spending $50 on a t-shirt. So, is this song bubble gum or is it lyrical genius?
I’m leaning toward it being a brilliantly camouflaged social commentary with a side of pop to (ironically) cover up the discussion of our country’s overt commercialism with a candy-coated shell.
Now, get to it — it’s time to pop some tags!
