If you compare Eminem's "Lose Yourself" to its catchiest peers in the top 10, they are just as catchy, perhaps even a bit more so. But if you look at how many listens its takes to get bored of "Lose Yourself", it really starts to stand out. I am still not bored of this single and I've heard it loads of times.
Eminem has written and performed both the rap and the singing part of this track. It is a semi-autobiographical piece about trying to make it as a performing rapper. But it speaks for all frustrated "artists" who are trying to use their creativity to make something better for themselves.
Eminem is clearly a man with a lot of anger inside of him, and at times this can be unattractive (though I know for many of his younger disillusioned fans it adds to his attraction). However this track shows he also continues to have a very good lyric writing talent, and an excellent sense of vocal rhythm, plus a pretty good ability to write melodies/harmonies. The chugging guitars etc in the background show his arrangement skills as well.
Overall, despite my misgivings about his negativity, Eminem has produced a good single which stands above many of those of his peers in the UK charts.

Lose yourself is one of Eminem's best songs! It actually lead him to win an Oscar in 2003, the Oscar Award for Music (movie soundtrack). This song was written by Eminem especially for his upcoming great movie, titled "8 Mile", which is actually the autobiography of the famous white rapper.
Inside this cd single you will find the following three songs, one lose yourself video, plus a bonus video:
1) Lose yourself
2) Lose yourself (instrumental)
3) Renegade (with Jay-z)
4) Lose yourself (the music video)
5) 8 mile movie trailer
If you have seen the movie, you will find that this song fits just great, as it talks exactly about what happens in there.
"Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
to seize everything you ever wanted - one moment
would you capture it or just let it slip?"
Great single, you can listen to it again and again without getting bored. Deserves five stars, no hesitation.

Eminem's `lose yourself' was released in 2002.It was his first single after `Cleaning out my closet'. The song is also the principal soundtrack of `8 miles' the film inspired in Eminem's life. Eminem is known by giving the audience 100 percent in each concert and I personally considered that this sing is the culmination of his entire career. His masterful performance on the film was highly acclaimed by all the audience all over the world. The legend of Eminem was there growing and growing we have to remember that after this single he had a few bad years with the death of his best friend and many problems with drugs. This song is one of the last of Eminem's old style now he is more commercial and his lyrics have changed. Since I was just a kid that sing has changed my way to see the life, there's thousands of good sings that I have liked but this one is different. When you hear it you really think that Eminem is talking about you. His electric style with a poignant final track make you feel different kind of powerful like if you could do everything you want in that moment. He talks about Rabbit the principal character of the film each person has a `rabbit 'inside him that's the key of Eminem's succeed. The atmosphere changes in his recitals, he is the king of self motivation. I really recommend buying or listening to this single especially before to do a important thing like playing a match or doing an exam- it always works.

Over the Top 19 Feb 2003
By Hassan Galadari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not much of a rap fan, nor am I an Eminem fan for that matter, but there's something about this song that you just can't make out. Taken from the Eminem's debut hit movie, which in its own way speaks of what life Eminem, aka Marshall Mathers, might have gone through. The movie was great! Eminem's acting abilities were top notch especially the serious cold outlook of his eyes in some scenes. He portrayed a person with a vision, a dream to be something more than he is.
The song is featured three times in the movie in different parts. The first is when Eminem's character is on a bus and he's heading back home. This is the smooth piano part. Very soothing and works well when mixed with the hard bass and guitars. The second part includes the heavy bass and beginning rhythm and some of the lyrics. Put those two together and the full song is played in the final credits of the movie.
The song's lyrics sums up the movie in just under minutes of music. It literally does that. Not only does it do that, it also plays testimony to Eminem's current and past life and not just the character's. The music is just over the top. This one is different, because you don't have just a beat, but also the work of bass, synth, guitars and that haunting piano all mixed into the fray. This helps make this Eminem's single, something not to be forgotten.
All in all, I truly recommend it. The song works in inspiring as well as lifting morale up when things just don't seem to be going your way. Just the first few verses of the song, would make you strive to be in a place better than you are now. And gives you a sense of achievement that makes your adrenaline pumping.

Great song, but it's getting old fast... 8 Jun 2003
By Tom Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first couple of times you listen to Lose Yourself, enjoy it for what it is. Great rapping by Eminem, a solid beat, the sort of song that gets stuck in your head.
Then, see the movie 8 Mile on DVD, and listen to the song's lyrics to see how much of the movie is told in it.
Good song, but if you really want to hear it, buy the DVD and listen to it in the context of the film. This is where it is supposed to be, and fits best.

Must have been Stan checking in 18 Feb 2005
By Ethan Straffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I dig the song. It didn't change my world, but it captures the passion of experience, and the off-kilter rhythm in the chorus is pretty darn cool.

I do have to wonder about any reviewer who would call this "absolutely fantastic, great beat, fantastic lyrics and good flow," and then subtract stars due to its being overplayed. Why yes, Clear Channel *is* a blight upon humanity. Welcome to the 21st century. Why doesn't he take out his frustration upon the corporate entities who deserve it, rather than upon the artist and "poser fans" who are (needless to say) less hardcore than him? I don't know, but 5 out of 5 reviewers found his comments helpful, and Eminem may get a few more good "Stan"-like songs out of the situation.

Not to say that Eminem isn't something a corporate entity in and of himself, whose employers push his music without restraint or apology. That's a given. If you want to rail against the system that floods our airwaves with redundancy, I'll be right there with you. But don't call something a "beautiful song" and then tell me how it was "ruined" by people who are neither the artist or you. As far as I'm concerned, that's a basic misreading of the artist-fan relationship. Like the song or don't like the song. Who else does or doesn't like the song, and how often the song is played, really shouldn't matter. Right?

Guess Who's Back 23 April 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I personally love "Lose Yourself", but didn't want to but the whole 8 Mile soundtrack for that one song. So, the single is the way to go. It has the main version along with an instrumental that is dope and a couple of other songs. I definately reccomend this CD, and any other thing having to do with the great and powerful Slim Shady.

Have Trouble Motivating Yourself??? Listen to This! 3 Dec 2005
By Joel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
YOU ONLY GET ONE SHOT. This is the secret of life. When you listen to this masterpiece, you hear the message of a young genius, born into poverty, who kept that secret in his mind and did not let anyone stop his methodical march to the top of the pop charts. I listen to this song, and it gives me the chills, because it tells the story of his life, and tells me to keep my focus, and keep on my march while the world is telling me "it can't be done." This song transcends the boundaries of pop, rap, poetry and words -- it is a slap in the back of the head that tells you to STOP WHINING AND FACE REALITY, while keeping the secret of life front and center in your mind. I defy you to not try harder to succeed after listening to this song. PARENTS: Forget the parental warnings! This is a "MUST LISTEN" for your kids!
