Coloring Club Plus — 10/7/19

Oct 7

I recently came across “Thrift Shop” I thought on Song Lyric Sunday but now not sure, and I really liked it and so decided to go out and listen to some more of Macklemore and learn about him.

Benjamin Hammond Haggerty (born June 19, 1983), known by his stage name Macklemore (/ˈmæk.ləmɔːr/ MAK-lə-mor), (formerly Professor Macklemore), is an American rapper and songwriter from Seattle, Washington. He was born to Bill Haggerty and Julie Schott. He is one of two boys and was raised with his brother Tim in Capitol Hill, Seattle, Washington. He has Irish heritage. Haggerty was six years old when hip hop first came into his life by way of Digital Underground.

He has collaborated with producer Ryan Lewis as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Since 2000, he has independently released one mixtape, three EPs, and four albums. Macklemore and Lewis’s single “Thrift Shop” reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 2013. The single was soon dubbed by Billboard as the first song since 1994 to top the Hot 100 chart without the support of a major record label, although Macklemore, in a slightly unusual recording contract, pays a nominal percentage of sales to use Warner Bros. Records’s radio promotion department to push his singles.

“Glorious” is a song by American rapper Macklemore, featuring American singer Skylar Grey. The song was written by Macklemore, Skylar Grey, Budo, Tyler Andrews and Tyler Dopps, with production handled by Budo. It was released to digital retailers on June 15, 2017, as the lead single from Macklemore’s second solo studio album, Gemini (2017). The song was used in a 20 second trailer for the eleventh series of Doctor Who and the trailer for Crazy Rich Asians.

 

 

 

You know I’m back like I never left (I never left)
Another sprint, another step (another step)
Another day, another breath (another breath)
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept (I never slept)

I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind
Seek and I find I can sleep when I die
Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride
And shit I’m straight
I’m on my wave, I’m on my wave
Get out my wake, I’m running late, what can I say?
I heard you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave
And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name
So when I leave here on this earth, did I take more than I gave?
Did I look out for the people or did I do it all for fame?
Legend, it’s exodus searching for euphoria
Trudging through the mud to find the present, no ignoring us
Got 20, 000 deep off in the street like we some warriors
My mama told me never bow your head, woo!

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious

I’m feeling glorious
The crib looking Victorian (oh yes it is)
You know that we been going in (been going in)
Since we hopped out that Delorean (Delorean, yeah we win)

En garde, things are just things
They don’t make you who you are
Can’t pack up a U-Haul and take it with you when you’re gone
We posted on the porch, my family’s glasses to the stars
My grandma smiling down on me like woo, that boy got bars
Okay, okay, yes I do
I said amen and hallelujah, let me testify too
Another morning, a morning, don’t let self get in my way
I got my breath, I got my faith and I remember why I came

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious

We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
The world is up for grabs (Hey, hey, hey)
We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
The world is up for grabs

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious
Songwriters: Ben Haggerty / Holly Hafermann / Joshua Karp / Tyler Dopps / Tyler W Andrews
