My theme song

Have you heard the song "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore? It's quite the hit and it's very catchy, one of my current workout songs. Also I've decided it is my theme song. If the game of thrifting was a sport, I would come out to this song. Here are some of the lyrics I can relate to (expletives deleted)...

I hit the party and they stop in that --
They be like, "Oh, that Gucci - that's tight."
I'm like, "Yo - that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant ---
I call that getting swindled and pimped 
I call that getting tricked by a business

And this part, I think I will sing in my head every time I'm at the thrift from now on...

I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is  awesome!

  1. Oh I love that song. My kids love it too..only they've not heard the original, but the edited radio version only! LOL

    I even posted a fun $20 in my pocket challenge on my blog.

    It is such a catchy song, but also very true. I think this song has made thrifting much more mainstream!
