Going Through Changes

Songfacts®:

  • This song samples Black Sabbath's 1972 track "Changes." The band's lead vocalist, Ozzy Osbourne, later recorded a modified version in 2003 with his daughter Kelly, in which they changed some of the lyrics to make it about a father and daughter drifting apart. Released as a single, it became Ozzy's first ever UK #1 hit.

  • Star from Hollister, CaThis song is also a glimpse into his grieving process of dealing with the death of his best friend and D12 band mate Proof and the ways he dealt with it including weight gain, isolation, drugs, and suicide attempts.
  • Devin from Santa Cruz, CaThis song is amazing. Eminem has truly recovered. I hope he makes at least one more album
