23 Eminem Songs For 23 Different Occasion

23 Eminem Songs For 23 Different Occasion

Find your inner Slim Shady.

The first time I remember hearing Eminem, I was 5 years old in my sister's room listening to "The Eminem Show." From that point, I became a Stan, which Urban Dictionary defines as "an overzealous maniacal fan for any celebrity or athlete."

Eminem is arguably one of the best rappers of all time and although he hasn't been in the mainstream for many years now, Eminem could get a feature from any artist and drop a major album tomorrow. Here are 23 Eminem songs for every occasion you could think of.

1. Getting in your feels- "Love the Way You Lie."

Everyone remembers the summer of 2010 when Eminem and Rihanna made one of the most emotionally charged songs of the year. Love the Way You Lie will give you chills and maybe make you cry a little bit.

2. Working Out, Part 1- "Lose Yourself."

This song has been on every workout playlist and always adds some pep to your step.

3. Starting a rap quartet with your friends- "Forever."

Drake, Kanye, Lil Wayne and Eminem link up together on this song to drop four of the hottest verses ever, and you can't really call your friends your real friends until you all rap this song together.

4. Crying hysterically- "When I'm Gone."

Eminem's song about his daughters missing him on the road will have you in tears every time.

5. Pregaming- "W.T.P."

You probably missed this from "Recovery," but you might have heard it on the "Project X" soundtrack.

6. Preparing for a speech- "Forgot About Dre."

The quick pace of this song from Dr. Dre and Eminem, along with the tongue twisting wordplay, makes for an excellent vocal warm up for a speech (@ college students).

7. Working Out, Part 2- "Till I Collapse."

Another classic from Eminem with Nate Dogg on the chorus, "Till I Collapse" will put ice in your veins.

8. Disturbing your friends- "Fack."

Just listen to the song, you'll understand

9. Late wine nights and emotional venting- "The Monster."

Again, Eminem and Rihanna give us a rap and chorus that we can belt our lungs out to.

10. Clubbing, or at least pretending to- "Smack That."

Even though this song was made when Akon was still blessing us with hooks, it can still be used in the right circumstances today.

11. Being angry at your parents- "Cleanin' Out My Closet."

Again, just listen to the song.

12. Missing your special someone- "Space Bound."

"I got a hole in my heart, some kind of emotional roller coaster..."

13. Cleaning house- "Shake That."

I can't promise that you won't want party after doing the dishes.

14. Working Out, Part 3- "Cinderella Man."

You should know by now that Eminem makes great workout music.

15. Getting out of a dark place- "Beautiful."

All jokes aside, this is an amazing song that helped me out of some bad times.

16. Breaking up- "25 to Life."

The entire song, Eminem makes you think he's talking about leaving a bad relationship but there's more to it.

17. Speaking out against the system- "White America."

Charged with lyrics about racial discrimination and white privilege in America, this song will open your eyes up to another perspective on racism in America.

18. Working Out, Part 4- "Phenomenal."

Actually check out the whole Southpaw soundtrack for great workout music, which Eminem has production credits on as well as killer verses.

19. Paying tribute to lost loved ones- "You're Never Over."

Eminem's song to his childhood friend Proof, who died in a shooting in 2006, will have you in tears remembering everyone you lost.

20. When you're feeling like telling it how it really is- "If I Had."

"Tired of drowning in my sorrow
Tired of having to borrow a dollar for gas to start my Monte Carlo"

21. Rapping your tongue off- "Rap God."

Eminem holds the world record for most words in a hit single, with 1,560 words in just over 6 minutes. Good luck.

22. Telling off people who bring you down- "No Love."

Eminem + Lil Wayne = Genius.

23. Driving really fast- "The Way I Am."

*Grips steering wheel tightly.*

So, when you're in the mood for almost anything, grab this Eminem playlist and find the song for you.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.


Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.

I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.

I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.

As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
