Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Downtown

Now this beat is interesting because the melody is in a way, a rip off of a bit from Family Guy where they remixed the classic 80s tune “Safety Dance” from Men Without Hats. But at the same time, it’s got an inflection of a what could be a mellow piano ballad. But that all changes as the song progresses and that melody is phased out. Quickly, it turns into an anthemic song, something Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have done numerous times. They’re set to perform this song at the VMAs this Sunday as well.
