Stuck in my head – ‘My Name Is’

I’m bringing it back to the days when Eminem had luscious bleach blonde hair, wore overhauls without a shirt and thought it was normal to write songs about killing his ex-wife. Ahhh….memories.

I was watching some ridiculous music countdown on the Fuse network (you know the station that still plays music videos) and Slim Shady popped up saying, “Hi, my name is.”

This jam dropped in 1999 and was the beginning of the tsunami that is Slim Shady. This single peaked at #36 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and reached the #1 position on “TRL.” Side note: Eminem was the first rapper to reach that precious goal.

The music video is what really sold me on this song. It begins with a middle-aged couple watching their television in their home on wheels. The husband (his belly button is exposed) is flipping through the channels and lands on “The Slim Shady Show.” Don’t we all wish this was a real TV show? Could you imagine the things we would have witnessed?! My imagination is running wild as I type!

Favises lyrics: “My English teacher wanted to flunk me in Junior High/Thank a lot, next semester I’ll be thirty-five/I smacked him in his face with an eraser, chased him with a stapler/And stapled his nuts to a stack of papers”

Slim Shady is so poetic.

Favises part of the music video: When Eminem impersonates Bill Clinton…I mean who doesn’t love a Clinton impersonation. Side note: was that really Monica in the music video…if not, Lewinsky has a doppelganger.

Marshall – please bring back your alter ego Slim. He was cute with the right amount of crazy thrown in. That is all.
