I don't know this guy
The idea that someone would want to end their life, because they didn't feel accepted for who they are is tragic. I'm not crazy about Macklemore's stereotyped references to religion, in Same Love, nor am I really making a stand about gay marriage although I don't disagree with it - just a stand that people should be able to be themselves. Everybody. And, I love Lady Gaga's Born This Way. Excellent singing behind the wheel music. Plus, her crooked smile is adorable.
Macklemore's Otherside is powerful. Anything that deglamorizes drug use for kids is worth repeating.
It's a tough world out there and I appreciate songs that may help someone, somewhere.
