She Keeps Me Warm

Mary Lambert Turns “Same Love” Hook Into A New Song

Mary Lambert, who sings the hook on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” has stepped out on her own. She recently turned the chorus of that song into a beautiful track called “She Keeps Me Warm.” Her take is a welcome surprise after hearing the chorus for nearly a year on the rap duo’s same-sex anthem. Lambert, who is a lesbian herself, sings about love a love for another woman. On the surface, the song appears to be a normal love story. Upon closer look, it touches on issues of equality but in a less obvious way. “She says that people stare because we look so good together,” Lambert sings – if sung by a man, with the same pronouns, it’d just be a statement about jealousy.

Over at ThinkProgress, Alyssa Rosenberg applauds the song for its understated message. “Real equality means getting to enjoy your relationship precisely for its significance to you, without having them be reappropriated for a movement, or a message, or someone else’s edification.”

Looks like “Same Love” may lost at least one fan to “She Keeps Me Warm.”
