Not the biggest Eminem fan, I have to confess.
And then yesterday, Tania Kumar suggested an Eminem song, “Till I collapse” to me, which she aptly describes as a power song for the last mile.
And guess what?
I LOVE it!
The lyrics were clearly written for every one of us who staggers, exhaustedly, across that finish line:
‘Cause sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak
And when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up
But you gotta search within you
And gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you
And get that motivation to not give up
And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face, and collapse
And as for that thumping chorus, which is the bit I love the best:
Till the roof comes off, till the lights go out
Till my legs give out, can’t shut my mouth
I could listen to that chorus on a repeat loop, it’s so great.
Here’s the song.
Oh yes, and Hugh Jackman too, which is, of course, an added bonus 😛
171 bpm, in case you were wondering.
