Stan – Song Of The Day

Stan

The genius behind Eminem‘s number 1 single “Stan” really is the idea that someone would listen to Dido‘s harmless track “Thank You” and think to splice it into what is one dark piece of rap music. The song tells the story of a fan who keeps writing Eminem letters, letters to which the rapper responds politely and how the titular Stan slowly but surely reveals some pretty creepy character traits and eventually loses it completely. It’s a messed-up plot but a compelling one and the track (and its video) is hugely atmospheric.
