The lyrical genius and sheer meaning of this song is totally mindblowing, to make this after all of the rubbish he has been through in his young ages to come to his dream to make something extraordinary. Eminem is surely the best rapper in the whole wide world and nothing comes close. - EMIN3M
Best by far. Because not only does it sound phenomenal, it tells a story. "His arms are heavy, Knees weak" This sentence describes that he is nervous for his first time rapping. And I would be to, If I was a white rapper. Then it goes on a bit saying: "You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime" This is saying how don't let nerve get you down, just lose yourself and live in the moment!
This indeed is a very great song, my first Eminem song that got me listening to him, and I love the beat. It tells about his story. but I honestly think that there should have been a tie for first with this song and either "Not Afraid", "Mockingbird" or "Kim". Slim Shady can get it's own spot in the tens.
So I recently was working on my master's degree thesis when everything looked awful for me and I couldn't get any results from my work. Then randomly I encountered this song and then from nowhere there were so much energy built up inside me. Then in two days while listening to this and working at the same time I managed to finish my work with amazing results! I wanted to thank Eminem for talking me out of this downhill I had. I love you.
If any song showcase's Eminem's pure skill than it is this song. Not only does the song have a powerful beat, but it has a inspirational message and Em's incomparable flow. There is definitely a reason why this song won an Oscar as well as a Grammy. He has also had several nominations for multiple awards. It is considered by many to be Eminem's best song, as well as one of the best songs in the history of hip-hop. Truly inspirational and my personal favorite song.
"This should come under a different category: Top ten songs" This bro got it right. I don't know who it is, but they got it right. This song was probably his second best song he ever made. It just works so well with what you need. It has such a good meaning that gives you confidence to stand up and act now instead of later. "To stand up and fight, say something you might not like"-Eminem
GIVES ME INSPIRATION
GIVES ME PASSION
FILLS ME WITH REVENGE
FIRES ME WITH AVENGE
HATS OFF TO THE WHITE RAPPER
This song change my mind absolutely. When I goes deep in nervous. Then I see 8 Mile. It's a inspiration movie of Eminem life. I'm indian, where nothing know about rap songs. But it doesn't matter. I'm the human being and I know what he want to sing and say. My vote always and forever only for 'king of the rap "EMINEM"' - vinay1
Lots of meaning to this song, also not only eminems best song, but arguably the best rap song ever, by the best rapper ever, GREAT JOB EMINEM! - theTwister
This song is number 1 for sure. Eminem wrote one of the greatest rap songs of all time. Lose yourself was the only rap song to win in oscar for the hit movie 8 mile. The song has a ridiculous flow, He rhymes so creative and well. He writes the song about Jimmy Smith, played by Eminem, which is based on his life and where he grew up. Fantastic song, about a struggling tennager with conflicts in his life. Eminem for the win!
The lyrics are inspirational, and it's based on Eminem's real life experiences. He definitely reaches out to the listener and encourages them to never quit on their dreams and work hard throughout the song especially at the end "You can do anything you set your mind to, man". This is hands down Eminem's best track. Plus it won an Oscar for best song!
Love the chorus it makes me want to sing it all the time great artist great song hope he makes more songs like these because I love this song "you better lose yourself in the music the moment you own it you better never let it go you only get one shot do not miss your chance to blow this opportunity comes once in a lifetime"
I gotta say this is definitely Em's best song he's wrote. My second favorite's probably till I collapse but this one blows em all away. It's emotional, inspirational, and driving. Whether I'm listening to it at a basketball warm up before a game or on my headphones I love it. Rock on Eminem.
Always inspire me! Best song I have ever heard! Never get tired of listening to it!
This was featured in Eminem's first movie, 8 Mile. The movie is based on Eminem's life; he grew up in a poor Detroit neighborhood and followed his dream of rap stardom!
Lose Yourself was part of a very successful run for Eminem.
AMAZING! When you hear this song you just fell pumped up, from the awesome slow yet hard hitting beat to the most amazing lyrics I listen to this song at least 2 times a day if I don't the day feels incomplete, AMAZING! This is easily one of the greatest songs ever, my favourite song from my favourite artist!
This is the first song I heard from Eminem. Heard this whilst I was down. This made me believe so I I'm never gonna stop loving this song as it gives me strength every time I listen to it. Love all your songs Em! You're the king, so don't get me wrong when I say this is my favorite... Its just the 1st one I've heard
This song proved the accademy a scam and a bundle of morons. They say they look for quality in a grammy winner but who got the award for record and song of the year... a new comming moron named Norah Jones who doesn't even right her own songs. She's got no artistry and the acedemy's got no taste
PURE RAW EMOTION! You may say that a lot of other of his songs have that and that is true but no1 matches this! People think Not Afraid is good but just because it is upbeat and confident does not make it a good song. I don't think there is enough passion and emotion is Not Afraid or Love The Way You Lie.
Best baseball player-Barry Bonds (black). Best basketball player- Michael Jordan (black). Best football player- Jerry Rice (black). Best golfer- Tiger Woods (black). Best rapper- Eminem (white). Awesome how a white person can be so prosperous in something dominated by blacks! I ain't racist. -Justin Lam
Greatest of ever and even I bet it's gonna be the best till end of the world and even in the other world, and in every galaxies, so don't waste your time and listen to this music as more as u can every day and every hour and every minute and every second and every moment
The best eminem song! 'Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip? ' - 'You can do anything you set your mind to, man'... Very motivating song
This song absolutely raises a man who is discouraged to a whole new level of man who thinks he is the lord of creation. This song really boosts a man's confidence. It depicts a deep level of human fighting against the devil inside him
Eminen is honestly the only rapper I've ever liked. I HATE rap, so when I told my friend Lose Yourself was my favorite song they were surprised. It is easy to find inspiration in Eminem's raps and this one is a perfect example. It tells the story of an underdog and is a great inspiration to many. I think it's very easy to find support in Eminem's songs when you feel like you're not good enough or will never fit in.
Unlike other rappers today (or even then), Eminem actually has a message that anyone can relate to in this song. The flow is incredible and Eminem relies on his lyrical ability a lot, especially in the first verse. Very high grade song. Every rapper should takes notes on this.
This is an amazing and powerful song. the first time I heard it I thought wow, this is by far the best rap song ever. I never liked Eminem until I heard this song. I also personally liked without me too because I think its very funny. very different from lose yourself though.
