Eminem - Sing For The Moment


"Sing for the Moment" received positive reviews from music critics, with many critics praising Eminem's rapping ability, the lyrics, and the "Dream On" sample. "Sing for the Moment" proved to be successful, peaking inside the Top 10 in twenty countries. In the United States, "Sing for the Moment" reached number fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100. It was also a number-one hit in Portugal. The song, along with the original "Dream On", was used in a trailer for the 2016 animated film Sing.

"Sing for the Moment" contains samples of the song "Dream On" by the rock band Aerosmith. Joe Perry plays the guitar solo at the end of the song, and a sample of Steven Tyler singing is used as the chorus for this song. Eminem chants "sing" when Tyler starts to sing the chorus, and Eminem also chants "sing with me" and "come on". Eminem says the words in his live performances as well. The beginning of the song samples the intro of "Dream On" too. "Sing for the Moment" was later released on Eminem's greatest hits compilation album Curtain Call: The Hits (2005).

"Sing for the Moment" mentions John Guerra, a bouncer who Eminem had an altercation with on June 4, 2000, after the rapper claimed he saw him kissing his ex-wife Kim. Eminem deliberately mispronounces his last name as "Guerrera:"[1][2]

Eminem performed the song with Tyler during Eminem's 2022 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony performance, with Tyler singing the entire first verse of "Dream On" before Eminem began the first verse of Sing for the Moment.[3]

Eminem went on trial for weapon concealment shortly before this song, when he allegedly pistol-whipped John Guerra. Guerra was a bouncer at the club Hot Rocks, and Eminem hit him when he saw him kissing his wife at the time, Kim. But Em claims that he hit him with his fist, not the gun, and Guerra was just making shit up to get him in trouble; as a matter of fact Em was eventually forced to pay Guerra $100,000 to settle the lawsuit.

You guys all have this wrong, which really upsets me because this is one of his best songs. In short, it's basically about how music is really the only escape for humanity and the only thing that has the power to save it.Now if you wanna get very definitive, this song has many, many layers and goes into a lot of subjects. In the first verse he is talking a bit about himself when he was younger...When I was younger and listened to this song I almost felt as if he was talking about me. His life is filled with so much bullshit, at his house, his school, he gets abused everywhere he turns, so he listens to music to escape and it eventually teaches him how to grow a backbone and push people back.In the second verse he talks about how entertainment is slowly becoming corrupt and damaging the consumers, and he also talks about how people interpret his music. Many people can relate to his lyrics, and hes like "....shit" because he ususally believes that he's alone and theres no one else that shres his pain or his beliefs when in reality a lot of people can. He also talks about how some people interpretit wrongly and think of him as this terrible person trying to corrupt peoples minds, when in reality, hes the only voice of truth.The third verse beginning kind of continuing where the second verse ended but then eventually turns to how he makes his music for people going through rough times and how people in those situations use music as their therapy. Im one of those people. When he gets into the part about kids idolising their rappers and crying at night wishing theyd die till they throw on a rap record and they sit and they vibe....damn..I was the exact person he talks about.... 041b061a72
