Happy 39th birthday to Eminem! The rapper continues to record fine music, but he really made his mark on the hip-hop world with his first two major label albums, especially The Marshall Mathers LP (2000) from which "Stan" is lifted. It's a fabolous song about an obsessive fan, featuring a sample of Dido's "Thank You". Incredibly enough for an artist as genuinely boring as her, in this context everything about the song works. "Stan" is in every way a masterpiece, in my ears Eminem's greatest effort. That's not even up for discussion.
