Best Eminem Songs
Well written, has a message, great sample. Fantastic song.
Greatest of all time.. The rhythm the writing the beat it just says it all the way he starts slow then turns it up like a bomb it's just something only marshall mathers can do all props to the best rapper there is or ever was or ever will be EMINEM!
I have this set as my ringtone for a reason. The greatest song ever released. Eminem alternates several different intricate rhyme schemes of 2-5 syllables simultaneously in every verse and in the 1st verse of 2 thirds of the total syllables are rhymed. Not only that, he lands each sequence conclusion on a specific drum beat every instrumental revolution for a climactic effect. All this with a captivating beat, semantically structured sentences, powerful lyrics with an expansive vocabulary and my favourite ever chorus. 11/10.
You can do anything you set your mind to
Gosh man, you literally have gone through hell to make these lines . Which are true to the core.
How could you not love it? I disagree with whoever said it has great rhymes in it because it doesn't really but to tell a cohesive, progressive story with a plot twist and an internal-external perspective with a flow and yes, SOME rhyming is amazing.
One of the best storytelling Eminem songs he has ever made, the award winning Stan. Easily one of the best songs Eminem has ever made, to the outstanding rhymes, to Dido's beautiful singing, this song is a total 10/10. Absolutely marvelous.
Song tells a story, once again great lyrics from the greatest rapper ever. Its awesome how the beat compliments the narrative.
This samples "Thank You" from Dido, a British singer/songwriter. "Thank You" was used in the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors, and became a hit almost two years later after it was used on this.
Dido told MTV: "A hip-hop producer named DJ Mark 'The 45' King sampled the first part of 'Thank You' from the TV - and he put it on a beat tape, as they do, and sent it to Eminem and he used it. It's that simple. I got this letter out of the blue one day. It said, 'We like your album, we've used this track. Hope you don't mind and hope you like it.' When they sent it to me and I played it, I was like, 'Wow! This track's amazing.'"
Earth-shattering beat and flow with incredible verses. Nate Dogg's chorus kind of let me down, though. It wasn't that good. Still a remarkable song. Great for a workout jam.
'Till I Collapse is one of Eminem's best songs out there. You got the outrageous beat, Nate Dogg executing that chorus, and Eminem's motivational lyrics and rapping, creates heaven in a song. This is actually one of my pump-up songs that I'd listen to when working out or something like that. An amazing song by an amazing person.
This song pumps me up so much! It eats Not Afraid alive! This song is one of the best pump up songs of all time (if not the best)
There were so many to choose from! But this song seems underrated so I chose it. Very good flow, great lyrics, great music! And Nate Dogg just adds to its awesomeness. My other favorites are No Love, Not Afraid, Wont Back Down (I'm shocked that wont back down is number 45?! ) Insane, Lose Yourself, Fast Lane, SpaceBound, and I loved him in Romans Revenge, he got the best lyrics, although its quite insulting that he'd work with someone as shallow as Nicki Minaj
The cool song for the fans who love eminem and rap songs see this song official video a cool song with the cool video. Don't really understand why Lose Yourself is on top because it's nothing compared to Not Afraid. This song is really inspiring. At one point in my life I liked lose yourself better. Now that Not Afraid came out it tells you that you can overcome anything. This song is the best song by Eminem, and one of the best of all time. Super cool songs... Always give me inspiration
What can I say, I'm a suburban white kid who loves Eminem. This is my favorite one of his songs because of the lyrics and just how catchy they are and how nice they flow.
He's not afraid alright, so inspiring. It's nice to see Eminem's soft side for therapy with hints off he hates your guts if you doubt him but this is a one for non-stans too. For that it gets a vote.
Super cool songs... Always gives me inspiration when I'm down!
This chorus, this fricking chorus will keep you up at night. Please stand up? Who thinks of that considering this was written in a few hours, even the third verse which kinda disappointed me is excellent. Hats off to Dr.Dre for that killer beat.
The Real Slim Shady, one of the best songs ever made. You got the humorous lyrics, the catchy beat, and just plain old Slim Shady. He isn't Marshall, nor Eminem, but he is indeed Slim Shady.
The Real Slim Shady is a classic. Every Eminem fan knows and loves this song. The beat, the melody, the lyrics, everything. It's catchy, it's a great song to listen to when you're bored, it's just a good song and a great stress reliever when you listen to it.
So good! It will demolish Not Afraid and Love The Way You Lie this is what Eminem is about not the pop you hear today!
Jokes aside, When I'm Gone is a true masterpiece. This is Marshall at his core. He didn't write this song for his audience, he wrote it for his kids, for Hailie, for his family. It's indeed a beautiful song consisting a great beat, great lyrics, and pure, raw, emotion.
This song always brings tears to my eyes. I've never been able to have children, and me and my husband felt like giving up. After years (well, two years), of paperwork and applications, we finally adopted a baby girl from India. When she would cry, I would put on songs that helped me when I was down. To this day, this song is something that holds me and my now eleven-year old daughter together. She's been raised on hip-hop, rap and alternative, and it helps her cope with hardships just like me. I hope she always knows that she shouldn't feel my pain. Just smile back.
This is probably Em's 2nd-most powerful song behind Lose Yourself (his best one). But this is one of the only songs that has made me cry, especially at the end of the song. The lyrics are so meaningful, so relateable, and powerful. This is one of Em's most underrated songs. I guarantee you, no one will ever be able to write stuff this powerful ever again. Eminem is one of a kind, and he can never be replicated. Ever. I don't care how good Drake or Kendrick Lamar is. There will never be another Eminem.
How is love the way you lie before this?! Get real people where else could you hear rap like his?!
This song evaluates Eminem's ego perfectly. The chorus is really catchy and really let's you know it. I only know a couple songs by him, but I just apparently know that Eminem creates a lot of songs about his life. And this song is about what's going on and how it effects him, although I really only remember the chorus and the two stanzas: "Rock 'n Roll stations" and "The radio won't even play my jams".
This is song is just so emotionally raw. This album is by far his best. Don't know why the singles from his new album are in top 10. This is pure Eminem at his greatest. No featured singers like Rhianna or Lil Wayne, to interrupt the power this song depicts.
This is not a typical rap. More like a massive run on sentence. However it is amazing. I mean he rhymes every other word, great haunting beat and basically sums up the marshall mathers LP. So much energy and he keeps going on never slackening his pace. A must buy for any Eminem fan even one from recovery
Eminem at his finest, just venting everything he feels. The song is so raw. I feel like he was just fed up one day and recorded this song the same day, it has that feel, no fancy beat or radio friendly hook. Just excellent lyricism and anger, and that's what makes it so amazing.
Not every rap song needs a punchy rhythm and aggressive lyrics, very unique song with a calming melody that proves Eminem can rap to any genre beat. This song can turn Eminem critics to Eminem fans.
Best song ever, He is the best rapper in the world and needs people to see that. They all want to talk about him but really they don't no anything. They didn't have to go through what he did. Haters have never been in Marshalls shoes to know that his music is crap (which its not) cause really his just rapping about his life and if you think his music is bad then if only you had to live the life he did I would laugh in your face because you wouldn't be able to live one day there.
This song is perfect (behind Lose Yourself). It's an amazing blend of rock and roll and rap that shows the more caring side of Marshall Mathers through the quote "It's al political, if my music is literal and I'm a criminal,
How can I raise a little girl? "
Shady's life is reflected in his music, and most people would not be even close to where he is in the world if they grew up like he did. This song shows who he really is. I bet most people don't know that when he was nominated for an Oscar, he didn't attend the ceremony. His daughter wanted to spend time with him, and so he stayed home and watched cartoons with her.
A beautiful song that expresses what goes on in the minds of people who the outside world thinks have no minds. For every problem, there is a solution
Daddy's Gonna Buy You a Mockingbird... Man Heard this song like awesome times.. Never gonna forget a single word of it... On My List.. Its number 1. Love You Eminem.. Always have, always will!
Although I appreciate that some of Eminems song will always be viewed as lyrically better and more famous than this. For me, this song epitomises Eminem's music and life. This is an incredible song about battling faterhood, with financial struggles and lots of other issues he faced throughout his song. The emotion he pours through it is powerful. You listen to this song and you simply are put into the shoes of Eminem. Amazing.
Beauty of a song... I mean look at the lines.. The best lines which I felt were :- 1- Daddy had a job, but his job was to keep the food on table for you and mom. @2-I sat up the whole night night crying. This song has touched my heart and that of everyone whom I made to listen to this song. Thank you Eminem for this song.. Imma great fan of yours..
This should be at least in the top 5. This, like When I'm Gone, is emotionally genius writing. The message is heart warming and pulls on you're heart strings like a puppeteer. The last line is easily the best and reminds you not all is bad with the little maniacal laugh. Reminds the hard life Eminem has had to face. Good on you Em you bloody legend
I get that Lose Yourself was his first song and he climbed the peak of fame with that. I get that Stan is dedicated to his fans and is very well written. I get that Not Afraid was his comeback song to tell his fans that he is back and is gonna stay. I love all those songs but Rap God is totally different. If we were to choose one song that can define EM and that can represent him than RapGod is the undisputed choice. He wrote this song only to tell the world that he is the king of hip hop and will remain untill someone better than him comes which is not going to happen for generations. Lose Yourself is 17 years old and has been listened by most people that is why its at the top. Same goes for all other songs. But if all his songs were released together, undoubtedly Rap God would have been first choice of fans. And it would have been as difficult to remove it from Rank 1 as it is to remove Eminem from rank 1 of best rappers. So, don't judge the song by its rank. Just do yourself a ...more
Rap God is heavily overrated. Doesn't mean I love it though. Rap God is a really great song, and might be one of the best 6 minutes of your life. It isn't 6 minutes of your life wasted, it's 6 minutes of your life in wonderland. Top 5 song. Love it.
Guys you have got to vote for this. Marshall Mathers is a genius. 6 minutes of the same continuous flow, no one can rap like this. I know this song is only low because it's a new release, but we have got to get this in the top 5. Eminem has returned, with a mix of Marshall and the return of Slim Shady has made an appearance on this new album. I can't wait.
This song has is the latest in the list that's why it is on 10th. Had it come earlier it would have been in top 3. You want to know why Eminem is called King of Hip-Hop? lose yourself and every other song. Just listen to this you'll get your answer. EM made this song to immortalize himself and he did it. Generations later if hop-hop is still popular, fans will cry when they listen to this song and say why they were not born while Eminem was alive.
Eminem's singing perfect combination with rapping. This song is really really the masterpiece. Plug on your earphone and listen to the lyrics. You will feel that Eminem is going through at that phase of his life. And why this is the best of all of his songs.
The message of this song is to simply don't care when people diss you, insult you or say you are this or that: just know that your beautiful and amazing. Which in my opinion is very important as some people think they're in hard times with what people say they're ugly or unlovable which is totally false! Everyone has their own type and everyone is different which makes them unique and special in they're own amazing way and this is totally what this song provides. The lyrical genius and beat, chorus (Wow the chorus is amazing, Eminem has a great vocal voice. It wasn't auto tune) All mix together to make this more of a powerful and bigger statement of a song.
Awesome... The meaning is very good. Inspirational. Should be at least TOP 3... Eminem is yet the Best Rapper of the World.
Best song of Eminem by a distance.. it is made superbly... I love this song... Vote this to make it the number one...
Quite underrated one in my opinion + some nice jokes and touches about reality by Eminem and that makes this song funky, fun, special and maybe a bit rough at times. + When you watch the actual official video the atmosphere with Dr.Dre that yellow Lamborghini Murcielago and some other shows well how it is banging, and for sure for many people a pure classic and childhood music. I'm not an expert and I might be wrong but for sure this is pure gold as many Eminem songs from those years and period and very special from many too.
Pure, classic, Slim Shady. I changed my mind, this is my favorite song from The Eminem Show. The humorous lyrics, the chorus, oh my god this song is amazing. This is just a flashback from The Slim Shady LP. This song shows Slim Shady at his core.
dang, this is actually a pretty good and classic song. I mean, the main verse?
"Now this looks like a job for me
So everybody just follow me
'Cause we need a little controversy
'Cause it feels so empty without me"
that's pure classic and Eminem at his best. Not my favourite by any means but definitely good
This should be in at least no. 4, I mean come on. The song is just great. How come people think Love The Way You Lie is better? I mean that song is more to the 'Pop' feeling.
Anyways this song is a very good song with very comedic lyrics and it also has unpredictable rhymes, In the beginning of the song it gives you the feeling that Shady is back.
Lyrics amazing, beats were also amazing, speed was also amazing, just one of the best Slim Shady songs.
His name is, Slim Shady. My Name Is is one of the songs that got me into Eminem. The lyrics, the chorus, this song is monumental. This is rap. This is Slim Shady. This is going into the rap history books. This is Eminem at full power. And just remember one thing, his name is Slim Shady.
THIS IS THEEEEEE SONG! Why did he regret this song? It was his first hit and has one of the catchiest choruses of all time. Sure, the second verse is a bit stupid but the other are great and this is an unforgettable chorus. Only Slim Shady can turn "Hi My name is" in to a song.
My Name Is is the really great song. Good beat, good melody, good lyrics. Love this song, and in my opinion one of the best Eminem songs. Remember, his name is Slim Shady.
Such a funny song. And what he meant by sticking Nine Inch Nails through each one of his eyelids is that he's saying that things like movies, video games, rock music, etc, can also cause people to become violent besides rap. He using the rock band Nine Inch Nails (really amazing band by the way. Check them out if you haven't) as an example.
I don't know if this is my favorite song by him, but it's definitely the one I find myself listening to the most. I love it so much and all the emotion behind it. I don't even like Rihanna that much, but she did a great job with this song. Eminem and Rihanna just nailed this song. It's so good, and it's relatable for a lot of fans who have found themselves in the situation of an abusive romance. I think it's a really powerful song overall and speaks some very difficult emotions and lets us know that it's okay to love someone who might not be good for us. It's just a really powerful song and I find it to be musically brilliant.
Very emotional and strong song about a difficult relationship.
"Maybe this is what happens when a tornado meets a volcano... "
The love, pain, anger, and strong emotions of this song makes it my favourite. (Rihanna also does a good job. )
I love THIS SONG! How not no. 3 after lose yourself and when I'm gone. Eminem is the best rapper. This is his best song ever. It should be number 1! This song is awesome and it describes all the current love affairs happening right now. This song shows so much hatred, jealousy, violence, offense, innocence, guiltiness and love. This song has love so strong and violent that its really awesome.
This is easily the second running number one Eminem song of all time, after Lose Yourself. 7 weeks at #1. That was amazing but in my heart it was supposed to surpass Lose Yourself's 12-week run. I guess this song is supposed to run about 15 weeks at #1 but didn't happen in the reality. In my heart, It was Eminem's masterpiece.
Like Toy Soldiers is one of the deepest and meaningful songs he has ever made. There is so much raw emotion in this song It's madness. And the way Proof plays the guy who dies in the music video, and then dies a few years later from the same thing, it's just heartbreaking. This is very much the best song in Encore.
This is the most mature and powerful song, that Eminem has ever put out. A lot of haters say that Eminem is nothing but a racist, misogynistic homophobe, but in this one, he takes on an awful subject in hip hop, about how rap beefs aren't just showbiz anymore; they could be deadly. This song, in my opinion, is what stopped violence in rap beefs. But if the song, wasn't powerful enough for you, look at the music video. At the very end, Marshall puts down the mic and walks away, and the part that always gets me crying is when the pictures of 2Pac and Biggie are shown. Two of the greatest rappers of all time, who could have gone on to do much, much more, both died too soon, just because of some ridiculous East Coast-West Coast bull. This is one of those songs that makes you realize that there's only one Eminem, and there's never, ever going to be another person like him again, no matter how hard anybody tries.
This is eminems storytelling time at its finest. The chorus may sound a tiny bit cheesy but it provides a great break from the somber tone of the verses. Eminems most mature song, showing that he does have the ability to do a much milder track just as well as he does his more venomous ones. Tops anything from recovery, although space bound is pretty good
It's the best man. It has an emotion, it describes his story. This is great. Whenever I watch it's video it gains a sudden feelings to me and my respect to this song increases. Good job! Eminem!.
Eminem dissed his own mother and wife in "Kim"(Marshall Mathers LP) harder than any rappers. It's good to see he reconciled with "Headlights" on MMLP2 but this is a real tear jerker.
This is an absolute outrage! This is EASILY one of the best Eminem songs of all time, this song is LEGENDARY! The rhythm, the beat, the music video, the chorus, the meaning EVERYTHING about this song is EMINEM at his FINEST! Should be in the top 5! Other underrated songs which deserve to be up there include: Bully, Mosh, Forgot About Dre, My Name Is, No Apologies, Rock Bottom, The Way I Am, The Real Slim Shady and We Made U. Sort it out people, the new album "Recovery" is terrible although Relapse was good, especially with Beautiful and all those dark unique songs.
The sheer lyrics, voice and raw power that is produced all throughout the song are just wicked! This is basically the most detailed six minute life story you will ever get in your life, that's for thirty nine years of Eminem's life anyway. The video to this song also makes a big statement and slightly underrated and just needs a bit more people to realize how great this song is.
Cleanin' Out My Closet is a very good song. Good melody, good lyrics, and good everything. It also has a very deep meaning about it. It talks about Eminem opening up about his childhood and how his mom physically and mentally abused him. The song makes you feel good, but the meaning behind the lyrics makes you wanna cry.
Again I have probably made many people wonder " Are these made up songs? " " I think he discovered a piece of a practice paper on the floor" Type song, well its not! It's a piece of lyrical mastermind, his metaphors and similes in this song are bonkers! Eminem is simply the Albert Einstein of rap, not even rap the mastermind of whole music! This is just a great way to start getting known around. To be honest I did struggle thinking whether I should of put "The Way I Am" In replacement for this, though.
Let me give my review:
The song enters with a semi catchy and semi monotonous beat that does not have many changes throughout the song, not saying it isn't good but it's kinda monotonous throughout.
It kinda does that thing in music where it starts in this place and once the verse ends the beat kinda disappears. The song really is about the struggles of being broke and having no hope in the world. Marshal tells about getting in and out of a job, being excited over job openings, getting fired on the first day, and the struggle of not having the power to take care of his family and his children. The lyrics are very powerful and might even make you shed a tear, also the flow of this song is just phenomenal. The story telling is a great thing too, it tells his past in a very detailed way. This song is definitely 10/10 it has very few flaws and the flaws are really tiny things that don't really matter in terms of music but in terms of quality and "oh is this song gonna be as good as ...more
Great, inspiring, admirable song. The song is about being broke and hitting Rock Bottom. Eminem is one of the only rappers who doesn't rap about girls and drugs. This is a great song, and helped me get through being bullied.
One of his deepest songs, but in my opinion the best of all his songs and also underrated. People should hear this song more an pay attention to it. His best album is also The Slim Shady Linkin Park.
Talk about a duo. This really captures the struggle between evil and holy. For those who criticise it for being "offensive", he is not actually suggesting killing anyone or raping/having abusive sex with a 25 yr old girl, don't just hear the lines and get upset, understand the message.
For those who want to know which songs are the best Eminem songs, I believe this one is The best and most educating one. just listen to this and you'll agree.
This is supposed to be way higher!
Guilty conscience is like the best collaboration of slim and dre.
I love the way the song tells the stories of 3 men, and how their counterparting consciences come into being. I especially like the last stanza.
This song is just to awesome to be at 47!
This is the best song ever! I love how Dr. Dre is like the angel conscience, and Slim is the devil conscience! It's great how they tried to outdo each other. Great!
One of Eminem's greatest songs of all times. Such a big hit, surprised it is not in the top 10. deserves a way better ranking and I can't get it out of my head. The lyrics too are awesome.
He brought Shady back with a mix of some Beastie Boys and 80's music, what more could you ask for?
This is one kick-ass song. Great tempo and and killer lyrics from the rap God. This songs makes me want to get off my ass and do something...
Can't stop listening! The song is spinning around my mind! Vote this and make it to the top ten! "Let's take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch"
Some people are too lazy to understand the deep meaning of a song's lyrics, just want something to jam to and enjoy the sound of, Eminem critics don't understand the importance of the words in songs because they are designed to make you think. This is immensely clever with brilliant wordplay. Who would've thought a sequel to 'Stan's would live up to expectations.
One of my personal favorites. Honestly you can argue for the final verse as his best, or at least one of. He's rapping from Matthew, the brother of stan who killed himself and his pregnant wife because eminem was late to respond, and just goes off. Matthew kidnaps em and kills him, but in doing so, eminem realizes that matthew is just an emotion inside of him, representing all those he ever insulted, offended or hurt in his raps from years earlier, and how all that was coming back to hit him harder. Pure genius. You won't find anybody else in the world, dead or alive, with the ability to do that.
The best song on MMLP2 along with Rap God... these two songs exhibit the two qualities that set Eminem apart... in Rap God his rapping ability is on show, while here we get a taste of the kind of storytelling that has made Eminem one of the hottest MCs in the game. If Stan had an incredible story of a deranged and desperate fan, this is a story of revenge, where Matthew (Stan's little bro) returns to set things straight with Em.
And that fourth verse. That fourth verse. Insane!
Just listen this song once. No, it's not like his other songs which pumps you or make you stronger from inside but it's the masterpiece in story telling. It's a sequel to Stan. Stan's brother Matthew Mitchell takes revenge of his brother's death by killing Eminem. No other rapper has ever done a thing like that. It directly connects MMLP to MMLP2. Utterly hilarious, juicy, mouth watering lyrics it has. You won't be able to stop yourself from smiling in first 3 verses. Lyrically it's a masterpiece, best Eminem song
This is mind blowing! Some of the lyrics are out of this world! I am not normally a fan of Lil Wayne but when I first heard this song I was greatly surprised and inspired about standing up for your rights, your equality and how bad bullying is and the effects it has on your personal life, the video is inspiring and the song is inspiring, I am struggling to describe this mind blowing piece of music, watch the music video and see how impressive is this.
What the hell? No love is literally top 5 Material. WAY better than mockingbird, not afraid, and like toy soldiers. This song is extremely motivational in a neutral way ( a little good and bad), it shows how good Lil Wayne really is, or used to be, and is a very good pump song! How is this not even top 15? In my opinion Lose Yourself > No Love > When I'm Gone > Stan > Til I Colapse > Rap God. I have listened to more tracks than just that though.
Epic beat + awesome verses + cool chorus = this song!
This song is amazing and it should be in the top 10 in my opinion. 13 is pretty close though.
I listen to a lot of his songs and this is my favorite song by him. The amazing beats, his awesome verse, and the epic verse makes this song a masterpiece. Good job Eminem!
This should have been the lead single in Recovery. Great lines, amazing rhymes, incredible flow, flawless delivery and a great chorus all over one of the dopest beats I've ever heard. How is it possible for this masterpiece to be lower than mockingbird, beautiful and many other songs? Why does this song get no love?
What the heck?! This is easily one of top 5! The video is also fantastic, the lyrics are funny and it's actually a very catchy song!
Well, don't YOU want to grow up to be just like me?
THis list is ridiculous, all you damn pop fans are ruining it. Can't believe I had to scroll down to number 23 to find one song from the shady lp.
This song is just insane. Amazing lyrics and sense of humor plus a catchy beat. This early Eminem Songs are the reason why I became a fan or rap
Best song, I don't like Eminem that much, but this song I will always go back and listen to.
Eminem has so many songs that it is almost impossible to make a list and put them in an order. This is a track that makes it more difficult. Not even Eminem can do better than this again. You can feel his anger and frustration in every line he raps. It must be way up!
Really? 47th? Wow people listen to a good Eminem song this is terribly low why doesn't anybody actually listen to a good number of Eminem songs before they vote on this messed up list?!?!
The anthem of the alt right. With excellently crafted lyrics, talking about the hatred of whites, and our ever dominant struggle. The beats are great, and the singing is well done. Greatest hip hop song ever made.
When Em walks up to the mic onstage, clears his throat on Curtains Up and then the next track starts when he screams "AMERICA! "... goosebumps!
Should be 1 or 2. Way better than love the way you lie, space bound, or any of the newer songs he's done. in my opinion his top 10songs ranked.
1) Lose Yourself
2) Forgot About Dre
3) Till I Collapse
5) My Name Is
6) The Real Slim Shady
7) Guilty Conscience
8) Like Toy Soldiers
9) Rap God
10) I doubt this counts but Ready for War
This isn't an Em song, it's on Chronic 2001... (actually, just 2001). otherwise we could count ANY guest Em verse, and Renegade with Jay Z would be way higher.
It is no 11th greatest rap song in the greatest rap songs list. So why it is 24th in here? Should be at least top ten. One of best duo of rap. Shady and dre kills it
This made him how is it not in the top 10 I love his older stuff better yes this should be number 1!
Really touches the heart with its lyrics. How Eminem is trying his best to get dre back. Makes me remember, how we are helpless when the life throws the coin
Actually, a good contender for worst Eminem song. The tone of the chorus is such a tired cliche, as well as the lyrics. "I'm about to lose my mine, you've been gone for so long, I'm running out of time". Compare those to another pretty poppy Eminem song, love the way you lie. "Just gonna stand there and watch me burn, well that's alright because I like the way it hurts." It sounds pained, it sounds emotional. It describes exactly how someone in an abusive relationship would feel. What does the other chorus describe? It just beats around the bush with no lyrical direction.
One of the few rap songs that actually conveys a good message--a song about a friendship. Eminem's verses are heartwarming and Dre's verse is just absolutely bad ass.
It probably says a lot when the song currently at #19 on Em's list is at #4 on Dr Dre's list (I Need a Doctor), and the song currently at #33 on Em's list is at #4 on Jay Z's list (Renegade)...
