Throwback Thursday: "Lose Yourself" -- Eminem

If, in the fall of 2002, you could keep from bobbing your head and spitting along with Em when the theme song from 8 Mile came over speakers, then, have more willpower than I do. There was no moment when I didn't begin flowing like I was Rabbit, with the passion of a man whose future depended on him delivering each word with the same deadly precision as Mr. Mathers. With every Top-40 spin, Eminem was making me—and millions like me—lose ourselves; and that's a victory of poetic metaphysics that has never before nor since been duplicated.
