41 Kill You

Its everything that makes Marshall who he is, all rolled into one song.

This is a wonderful song with a catchy music. One of the best created by Eminem and reflects his quality of music as well as his lyrics.
This song should be at least in top 15.

What? You kidding' me..? Kill you at 52...?
At least in the top 5 man, this song is just an example of awesomeness..!
Guys, please vote..! Get it up!

The chorus and the beat is genius

No song like this. This is incredible. It is catchy, soulful and mesmerizing. The way Marshall Mathers can weave words together like this is extraordinary. The way he forgives and apologizes to his mother is great. My favourite song.

Superb lyrics.em apologies to his mother very emotional

His best song ever in my opinion. He touched my heart with this song, forgiving his mom and saying that he loves her no matter what happened in the past made me cry. Also Nate Ruess with his amazing voice made this song even better. So much emotions put in this song.

This is the best/

43 8 Mile

Simple music just like stated. It makes this my number one Eminem-drug, shaking my head back and forth whole night. This is cocaine!

Complex lyrics + simple music = fabulous song!
Please consider what just wrote

This song is pure awesomeness and I think that Eminem can greatly express what he feels inside, this song is for proof. It's more than amazing, that's my opinion.

It's for Proof? But Proof was killed in 2006, I thought this song was a part of 8 mile and that means 2002.

Great song. Really Catchy.

45 Mosh

amazing song... this song is actually a "pump up" song for me. This brings goosebumps to my skin. I understand where he is coming from, and I can understand his feelings in this song

The fact that this song is THIS low makes me upset. True emotions, probably his best song. And I'm not even American.

You guys suck this is by far the best em song
Just listen to it

Eh his flow is so slow and predictable in this song good message though

46 My Dad's Gone Crazy

Very underrated song, listen to the lyrics when it gets real dark, they are some of his best.

You guys need to listen to this song. It's great.

This song needs more attention. Everything about it is well done, especially the third verse and the beat. - SwagFlicks

47 Shake That

Two legends in one song. RIP Nate - GuyYouKnow

Why is this song at number 48...? Under I Need a Doctor...? This song is great. Despite being released only on Curtain Call (Eminem's greatest hits album) this song is near perfect. Eminem's verses are fast but you can make out every word he says. Nate Dogg rides the beat in such a unique and fluid way the way only Nate Dogg could. This song is just fun much more deserving of 48.

Such a catchy song

A different, but unique and amzing song from the reasl slim Shady. Get smart this must be way higher in this list.

48 Infinite

This album put Eminem on the map and showed he had the potential to be the artist he is today.

This and any man are probably Em's best songs;
Its sad this is so far down the list, Em's music was so much better then than it is now

His first song. Without this he would be nowhere. All of this pop crap doesn't deserve the credit it gets. I can only name 7 songs on recovery I actually really like. On fire, no love, Cinderella man, cold wind blows, WTP, untitled and won't back down. Nearly everything after encore is warped by popularity. Except for hell: the sequel, that is epic.

That said, I can't think of a single Eminem song I hate. Only five or six I don't like.

A phenomenal song... masterpiece.

Just an amazing song, you can truly just relax and feel the beat and the flow is incredible.

Too good to be so low - colesy99

50 Won't Back Down

I can not believe that this song is not at least in the top 25. This is song is better than Love the way you Lie. This is the second best song on the entire recovery album, second to not afraid.

It pumps me up every time I hear this song... Should be in top 20... Please vote guyss

This is the only Eminem song I know because it is on black ops map five when yo activate the 3 red phones yo!

Finally this song is going up
People are starting to show respect to this song
Amazing breathtaking verses and a killer hook with an outrageous beat
This song still deserves more votes as it is top ten material
Listen to it then you will know what I meant

51 Brain Damage

One of Eminem's greatest songs! Why this isn't even in his top 135 songs I do not know! He shows great emotion in this song about how he got bullied as a kid, it must be hard for little Em! This is an amazing song! :-)

Brain damage is Eminem's most underrated songs

One of his best songs

You gotta love how he says anus

53 No Apologies

This is lyricism at it's highest potential with great meaning. Very underrated. It's definitely up there with Lose yourself, Stan, Sing For The Moment, Rock Bottom, The Way I Am, Cleaning Out My Closet. Come on lets get this right people!

I love all of his songs, but every time I listen to this.. I know it's my favorite song! He is my definition of lyrical genius!

this song is the greatest song that has ever been made, this was when em was in his prime not saying that he still isn't a good rapper but this is ill

Its disappointing that this awesome Song is so low here, I mean every verse is still killing and the chorus is lit but the ending, the ENDING! I BECAME A ORGASM

54 3 A.M.

Lyrical masterpiece better then anything on recovery

This song should be in at least top 15!
Common guys lets vote! This song is purely underrated! It should be in the top 20's! This one

What is this doing down here? Should be in top ten without doubt.

This is one of those many songs on Recovery that just feel forced... Like he's trying too hard

55 Going Through Changes

Great beat and rhythm. Should definitely be in the top 20 at least.

I love the whole album though but this song which I want to point out should come up at least to 25th position... Please vote it up... Thanks

Good song. You get a vibe that you get from no other song by him

Damn... when I hear this song it's like I lived with Eminem in his entire life cause you know this song is about his drug addiction, his old friend that died years ago (Proof) and Kim... I don't know it just feels really sad to listen to

56 Business

How can this song be at the bottom
No way. Oh! This is a superb song by Eminem
I love this song very much. The music is amazing and everything is great in this song. Please vote for business.

Had to scroll all the way down here to find this behind crap like love the way I sold out and not afraid of being queer make it to the top 5! Get this sorted people! Vote for the good stuff! - 8gerrard8

Laugh out loud 63 really? I love this song. It has that sort of beat that just makes you want to sing along in the beginning. It deserves to at LEAST be #20 on the list. Vote this song up guys "To the rapmobile, lets go"

53? Are you kidding me?! This song is awesome. There is nothing about this song that is bad. Catchy, funny, great beat, great rhymes. What more could you want?

57 Legacy

"I used to be the type of kid that would always think the sky was falling"

This song illustrates a young and bullied Eminem that builds his confidence on his skill with words to break free of the world he knew and rise to fame. Really a great song. Probably my favorite on the mmlp2.

This deserves to be in the top 10, it is new, so it needs to be heard more, but the lyrics are genius, beat is catchy, female vocalist is excellent!

Oh heck, guys... this is TOTALLY his best song. It's like Stan/When I'm Gone but stripped back and with some better rapping. it's got a great affect.

So my favourite Eminem song is at 56...wow!

58 Kim

This may not be Eminem's best song. But you can hear his emotion being poured out. It should really be much higher than 29.

Best Song Ever made. The only reason it isn't higher is because of these punks who started liking eminem at relapse.

I think it's safe to say this is Eminem's most controversial and violent song. But what I admire about it is that it goes into depth of what was on Marshall's mind when he saw Kim cheating on him and how much it hurt him. Kim got what she deserved with that song. Hearing that song, as insulting as it is to her, she had to realize that SHE caused that kind of pain reflected in the song. Sure, Em cheated on Kim once, but at least he owned up to it, and he wasn't fully grown; he was just being young and dumb. A lot of people criticize Marshall for making this song, but put yourself in his position: You work hard for your fame, which started off from nothing, you earn the money to support your family, and how does your wife repay you? By cheating on you. I would've been this mad if something like that happened to me too.

It's very raw and emotional to say the least.

59 My Band

Eminem has better songs than "My Band" but you can't deny the genius within the album and within the song itself. Excellent to hear, brilliant rapping and it should definitely be higher than 57th place (on the 15th of september 2013) as its better than songs such as "Love the way you lie" which holds 8th place.

One of the funniest songs I've ever heard. Pure comedy.

Such a funny song.

I love that song! - kennywhite

60 Stimulate

Apparently people are easily swayed by catchy producing and less by genius. Not saying that all the Recovery-songs at the top end of this ranking are low quality. Hardly any of Em's is; rhymes, content, flow, visual imagery, scene-setting or even catchy producing there's always a reason to really like a song.
For me 'best' means 'good in every aspect, in a way that makes that song a whole, in which every single word or sound is right where it should be. '
Songs like this one, Renegades, Way I am, Rabbit Run, White America, Emulate are Em at his best in my opinion.
