This song finds Eminem twisting English rock band The Zombies' 1968 hit single "Time Of The Season
" into a sad ballad that touches on the disappearance of his father. The Zombies' Rod Argent
told Rolling Stone
that he is very pleased with how the Detroit MC sampled their tune. "I actually loved it," he said. "I loved the way he takes words and phrases from the original record and then spins off of the particular phrases. It kicks him off onto an avalanche of funny wordplay and invention. It's very amusing. It's a waterfall of words, and the associations just keep coming."
