Música con toque lésbico: “Same Love” por Macklemore y Mary Lambert

Ayer por la noche me puse a ver los MTV VMA’s y me encantó ver a Macklemore y recoger el premio a mejor vídeo con mensaje social por “Same Love” que es una canción que me encanta. De hecho, decir que me gusta es poco, me pone los pelos de punta siempre. Entonces me acordé que no se las había recomendado para nuestra sección de y aquí estoy, corrigiendo el error.

Creo que la canción se explica a sí misma, así que más que hablarles de la letra les voy a contar un par de detalles curiosos y super lesbicanarios. Lo primero es que Mary Lambert escribió su parte de la canción basada en sus experiencias con la religión como lesbiana.

Si les gustó el coro, probablemente van a enamorarse de su sencillo “She Keeps Me Warm” que es un extensión de los coros que escribió para Same Love. Si aún no la conocen, no se preocupen, la próxima semana les hablaré de ella en esta misma sección.

Pero si aún no se han enamorado por completo de la canción, tienen que escuchar la versión de Jenna Mason-Brase. Una chica lesbiana de 17 años con una voz tremenda, que le ha dado una vibra tremendamente poderosa a la canción cambiando la letra para retratar mejor sus propias experiencias. En el post les agrego el vídeo porque encima es precioso y creo que absolutamente todas podemos sentirnos identificadas con los sentimientos que se ven reflejados y con la letra (puedes leerla completa en la información del video).

En fin que “Same Love” es una canción genial que encima ha inspirado un montón de canciones lésbicas, ¿qué más podemos pedir? Las dejo con la letra para el karaoke lesbicanario.

“Same Love” por Macklemore y Ryan Lewis con Mary Lambert.

When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gay,
‘Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.
I told my mom, tears rushing down my face
She’s like “Ben you’ve loved girls since before pre-k, trippin’ “
Yeah, I guess she had a point, didn’t she?
Bunch of stereotypes all in my head.
I remember doing the math like, “Yeah, I’m good at little league”
A preconceived idea of what it all meant
For those that liked the same sex
Had the characteristics
The right wing conservatives think it’s a decision
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
Man-made rewiring of a predisposition
Playing God, aw nah here we go
America the brave still fears what we don’t know
And God loves all his children, is somehow forgotten
But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago I don’t know

And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, My love,My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me
Have you read the YouTube comments lately?
“Man, that’s gay” gets dropped on the daily
We become so numb to what we’re saying
A culture founded from oppression
Yet we don’t have acceptance for ‘em
Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board
A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it
Gay is synonymous with the lesser
It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion
Gender to skin color, the complexion of your pigment
The same fight that led people to walk outs and sit ins
It’s human rights for everybody, there is no difference!
Live on and be yourself
When I was at church they taught me something else
If you preach hate at the service those words aren’t anointed
That holy water that you soak in has been poisoned
When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same, but that’s not important
No freedom till we’re equal, damn right I support it
(I don’t know)

And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, My love, My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

We press play, don’t press pause
Progress, march on
With the veil over our eyes
We turn our back on the cause
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
When kids are walking ’round the hallway plagued by pain in their heart
A world so hateful some would rather die than be who they are
And a certificate on paper isn’t gonna solve it all
But it’s a damn good place to start
No law is gonna change us
We have to change us
Whatever God you believe in
We come from the same one
Strip away the fear
Underneath it’s all the same love
About time that we raised up… sex

And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can’t change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, My love, My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is patient
Love is kind
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I’m not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I’m not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I’m not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
Love is kind
