Stan – Eminem


It should go without saying that this is Eminem’s great work. But that isn’t to say it’s without its faults.

5 notable things about Stan:

1) In the video, Dido sings while having a poo.
(‘I will go down with this s**t’, etc, etc)

2) In the video, Eminem receives a letter from Stan
But Stan’s first letter gets lost in the sorting office
So he should only know about what was written in one of the letters, but his reply mentions things that were in both the first and second letters.

You said your girlfriend’s pregnant now, how far along is she?

(responding to Stan’s first letter)

And what’s this shit about us meant to be together?

(responding to Stan’s second letter)

3) Stan from ‘Stan’ (below)

is Casper from Casper
(and him off of Final Destination)
Just in case you didn’t know.

4) At what point does Eminem stop writing his letter to Stan?

I seen this one shit on the news a couple weeks ago that made me sick
Some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge
and had his girlfriend in the trunk, and she was pregnant with his kid
and in the car they found a tape, but they didn’t say who it was to
Come to think about, his name was.. it was you
Damn!

I like to think he gets right up to the ‘y’ in ‘you’ before realising that he’s writing a letter to nobody. Then he goes and has a proper laugh about it with his tour manager and moves on with his day.

5) This is probably one of the greatest rap songs ever written and was destined for 2001’s Christmas Number 1 until it was dethroned by:

Neil Morrissey's oddest achievement since bonking Les Dennis' wife

Review: Nitpicking aside, this is powerful and poetic. A true masterpiece.
9/10
