Macklemore & Ryan Lewis之前的那首 Thrift Shop
異常的受歡迎
這是少數獨立歌手能夠打進Billboard Hot 100第一名的位置
以一首非主流的歌曲
這樣成功算是奇葩!
在同一張專輯(The Heist)裏這首"CAN'T HOLD US"最近也開始打歌了
頭一回在收音機上聽到只覺得這歌很普通
奧爸還說Macklemore大概只會是One Hit Wonders吧!

沒想到事隔幾個禮拜
再一次聽到這首歌時
不知怎麼的
腦海中一直重覆 Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, We’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
like the ceiling can’t hold us...
不知不覺一雙手也想在空中揮舞....
只覺得背景的音樂怎麼有一種鼓舞的感覺...
(看來我是很容易被影響的人)

Macklemore 跟 Ryan Lewis都是在Seattle長大的小孩
難怪這個MV最後是將旗子掛在Space Needle上頭
有人說這首歌應該改名叫Around the World
因為這旗子從冰原到沙漠到海洋到城市
到處都去過了嘛...
哈哈..

很多人認為 Rapper 都是唱些有關毒品或暴力的歌
但是Macklemore & Ryan Lewis的另類風格也為饒舌歌帶來不同的風味
我是蠻喜歡的啦!
希望他們能更上層樓

底下為歌詞

Can't Hold Us

[Intro:]
Ay, ay, ay
Good to see you, come on in, let's go
Yeah, let's go
Alright, alright
OK, uh, alright, OK
Alright, OK

Return of the Mack, get up!
What it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t.
Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
Instead of getting on the Internet and checking a new hit me
Get up! Thrift shop pimp strut walking, little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
Somewhere between like rocky and Cosby sweater gang nope nope y’all can’t copy
Yup. Bad, moon walking, this here, is our party, my posse's been on Broadway,
And we did it, our way.
Grown music, I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it
And yet I’m on.
Let that stage light go and shine on down, got that Bob Barker suit game and plinko in my style.
Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds,
But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
Trust me. On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustler,
Chasing dreams since I was 14 with the four track bussing halfway cross that city with the backpack, fat cat, crushing

Labels out here,
Now they can’t tell me nothing
We give that to the people,
Spread it across the country
Labels out here,
Now they can’t tell me nothing
We give it to the people,
Spread it across the country

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Now, can I kick it? Thank you. Yeah I'm so damn grateful.
I grew up, really wanted gold fronts
But that’s what you get when Wu tang raised you
Y’all can’t stop me, go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat
And I’m eating at the beat like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark week
Raw. Tell me go up. Gone!
Deuces goodbye. I got a world to see, and my girl she wanna see Rome,
Caesar make you a believer. Now I never ever did it for a throne.
That validation comes from giving it back to the people. Now sing a song and it goes like
Raise those hands, this is our party
We came here to live life like nobody was watching
I got my city right behind me
If I fall, they got me. Learn from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching ourselves

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

I saw we put our hands up
I saw we put our hands up

[3x]
Na na na na na na na na
And all my people say

Na na na na na na na na
Ma-ckle-more

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us.
