30 Day Song Challenge: Day 14

Day 14: A song that nobody would expect you to love.

Well, I'm pretty open about my song preferences. But I did completely shock some of my friends a few months ago when I mentioned on Facebook how much I loved "Love the Way You Lie" by Eminem. I think it's a brilliantly tragic portrayal of someone stuck in a cycle of violence, and it still manages to stun me into silence every time I hear it. But a few of my friends were really confused by me liking this song. So I'll include it here to confuse any of the others who still don't know.

Like probably all Eminem songs, this has some foul language in it. Not one for the kids.

  1. I love it for the same reasons you do. I can see how easy it is to get stuck in this cycle and perpetuate it. The song is both tragic and a call to action (or at least prayer) for anyone who witnesses such behaviors.
