Eminem - Sing For The Moment

"Sing for the Moment" is a song by American rapper Eminem. It was released as the fourth single from his fourth studio album The Eminem Show, on February 25, 2003. The song uses the chorus and melody of "Dream On" by American rock band Aerosmith.
The song uses an interpolation from the song "Dream On" by rock group Aerosmith. Joe Perry of Aerosmith plays the guitar solo at the end of the song, and a sample of Steven Tyler singing the chorus of "Dream On" is used as the chorus for this song. Eminem says "sing" when Tyler starts to sing the chorus, and Eminem also says "sing with me" and "come on" in the chorus. Eminem says the words in his live performances as well. The song also contains an interpolation of "Dream On" at the beginning of the song. "Sing for the Moment" was later released on Eminem's greatest hits album Curtain Call: The Hits. "Sing for the Moment" deals with the themes of rap music's effect on society and the misunderstanding Eminem claims critics and parents have towards his message. Eminem uses the song to refute critics who have accused him of promoting violence to young people, saying that committing a crime is ultimately up to the offender in a post-9/11 world. He also explains that his music has an advantage for young people, claiming that his music is a relief from boredom and depression. Eminem's altercation with a bouncer named John Guerrera is also referenced in this song.[1] The song reached #14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, #6 on the UK Singles Chart, and #5 on the Australian ARIAnet Singles Chart.
The music video, released in 2003, is a collage created with various clips, including shots from the Anger Management Tour. It also contains cameos by various fellow rappers, including Dr. Dre, the members of D12, 50 Cent and Ludacris. Eminem stands in neutral positions and stares at the camera several times in the video. The video is very similar to the 50 Cent music video "If I Can't". On The Eminem Show, "Sing for the Moment" segues into "Superman". On Curtain Call: The Hits, the segue also fades out as "Superman," since Superman is not included the compilation. When Eminem raps, "Any dispute won't hesitate to produce handguns" in the second verse, "handguns" is censored.

Eminem - Superman (Clean Version)

"Superman" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Eminem. It features backing vocals from frequent collaborator Dina Rae and was released in January 2003 as a single in the U.S. only, peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single is taken from Eminem's worldwide hit album, The Eminem Show, which was released in 2002.
The song is about the rocky relationships and promiscuous nature of the girls Eminem has had in his life and how he plans to deal with it. In his 2008 autobiography The Way I Am, Eminem revealed that the song is about his rumored relationship with singer Mariah Carey[citation needed], to an extent. The song is very similar to his song "Drug Ballad" and "Pimp Like Me" with D12. The music video for the song features porn star Gina Lynn and can only be found on the 8 Mile DVD. It also contains an edit different from the album version. The uncensored contains nudity, and is rarely shown on MTV or BET. It features on the music video website VEVO. Shannon Elizabeth was Eminem's first choice to star in the video, although this never came to fruition, as they could not come to terms.

Eminem - Cleanin' Out My Closet

"Cleanin' Out My Closet" is a song by American rapper Eminem released in 2002. It was from his fourth studio album, The Eminem Show and was later featured in his 2005 greatest hits album Curtain Call: The Hits. "Cleanin' Out My Closet" was the second single released off the album following "Without Me". However, unlike the preceding single which was as his humorous Slim Shady persona, "Cleanin' Out My Closet" was a serious yet sarcastic song based on his childhood and relationships. It also depicts Eminem venting his anger towards his mother, Debbie Mathers, for (the way he thinks) raising him horribly. In the hook, Eminem sarcastically apologises to his mother for hurting her and making her cry but takes it back by letting the whole world know what a bad mother she was. It became the second top-ten single from the album, reaching #4 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 chart, and one of the highest-charting singles of his career. The song did not reach #1 on any foreign charts, but was certified Platinum in Australia.
It was also used in the initial theatrical trailer to Eminem's film, 8 Mile released in November of that year.
With the release of The Marshall Mathers LP 2 in 2013, Eminem apologised to his mother on the track "Headlights". He stated (among other things such as wrongfully mocking her drug problem, regretting that he never let his daughters meet their grandmother) that he cringes when he hears "Cleanin' Out My Closet" on the radio, and that he does not play the song in-concert any more.

Eminem - Without Me

"Without Me" is a song by American hip-hop artist Eminem that was released as the lead single from his fourth studio album, The Eminem Show in 2002, and re-released on his greatest-hits compilation album Curtain Call: The Hits in 2005. "Without Me" is one of Eminem's most successful singles, reaching No. 2 in the U.S. and No. 1 in many countries worldwide.
The song was Eminem's return after the successful The Marshall Mathers LP, intended as a sequel to "The Real Slim Shady" and essentially saying that he is back to save the world. It also refers to Eminem's role in the music industry and his cultural effects.
The song mocks a number of Eminem's critics, including then-Vice-President Dick Cheney (including his recurring heart problems) and his wife Lynne, the FCC, Chris Kirkpatrick, Limp Bizkit and Moby.,[1][2] as well as parodying Prince's decision to change his name to a symbol. It also lampoons comparisons of him to Elvis Presley as a white man succeeding commercially in a predominantly black art form. A line also attacks his mother; Debbie Mathers for the lawsuit she filed for the lyrics of his debut single "My Name Is".
The opening lyric "Two trailer park girls go round the outside" is based on the single "Buffalo Gals" by Malcolm McLaren and mocks underground artist Canibus, while the introduction — "Obie Trice, real name, no gimmicks" — is sampled from Obie Trice's own track "Rap Name". It also heavily samples Michael Jackson's hit song, "Billie Jean".
The background saxophone riff was sampled in Drunkenmunky's 2002 club hit About this sound "E" (help·info).
Some of the lyrics are altered on the clean version, such as "This is about to get heavy" replaced "This shit's about to get heavy". Also, "Fuck that, cum on your lips, and some on your tits" is changed to "Jump back, jiggle your hips and wiggle a bit". The censored version also replaces "fag" with "Stan" when referring to Moby, a reference to the popular track from The Marshall Mathers LP (2000).
