Love the Way You Lie
By Eminem ft. Rihanna

“Love the Way You Lie” is the second single from
Eminem’s 7th album “Recovery”. It was released on
June 21st 2010, and debuted at no. 2 on the Billboard
Hot 100, staying at the top position for four consecu-
tive weeks. The music video features Lost’s Dominic
Monaghan and Megan Fox.
The song starts off with Rihanna’s mesmerizing vocals,
with, in my opinion, the most eerily haunting lines
of the song; also the chorus –
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
That’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
That’s alright, because I love the way you lie
Eminem then continues to rap, angrily, but well, about how he feels about abusing and hitting his girlfriend. The storylinemay be the same as some
(many!) of his other songs, but the internal anger he emanates, and Rihanna’s vocals make this song one of a long, long list of favorites.
The song in general is pleasing to hear, the type of song, which after a long tiring day, you come home and listen to in order to relax. Oh, and did I mention that it is a great stress buster? Well, it totally is. It is one of the songs, which you can’t help but keep on listening to.

So go ahead, listen to “Love the Way You Lie” if you haven’t already, which is bound to be impossible, as this song is already such a
favourite and promises to be for months to come!
