"And We Danced" is a song by Macklemore under the alter-ego "Raven Bowie" and features singer "Ziggy Stardust". Contrary to the later releases by Macklemore like "My Oh My", "Wing$", "Same Love", and the major hits "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us", all taken from the album The Heist which were credited to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, this release "And We Danced" is taken from his 2009 mixtape, The Unplanned Mixtape, and only credits Macklemore and "Ziggy Stardust".

Based mainly on the popularity of the single "Thrift Shop", the song taken from a 2009 recording has charted in 2013 in Austria, France and Switzerland.
