 Best College Dance Song Ever of the Year. {Sir Raven Bowie < Macklemore / Ryan Lewis: AND WE DANCED}

And we Danced!

(I need a bigger font)

Remember this moment for the rest of our lives tonight tonight tonight ’cause tonight’s the night the night amirite?!

Quite cockblocking we’re having a hoedown.

Not politically-correct enough? This isn’t either, but will give you an idea of where Macklemore is coming from.

^ here’s to MJ ^

I’m calling it: the next great dance song in college campuses everywhere.

Okay, I’m calling it a little late—it’s a year plus old and at 2 million views—but this thing is just getting started.

The message: get your cool “off”—is a Buddhist one, you could say. Don’t be cool. Dance like no one’s watching. Be wild, be yourself, be anybody, just be fully—

For more on the message, watch the second video. It’s good one. Breathe. Heart, and Dance, vs. Ego.

And Dance! It’s the secret to every great party.
