Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
"pit or tunnel in the earth for obtaining metals and minerals," c.1300, from Old French mine "vein, lode; tunnel, shaft; mineral ore; mine" (for coal, tin, etc,), of uncertain origin, probably from a Celtic source (compare Welsh mwyn, Irish mein "ore, mine"), from Old Celtic *meini-. Italy and Greece were relatively poor in minerals, thus they did not contribute a word for this to English, but there was extensive mining from an early date in Celtic lands (Cornwall, etc.). From c.1400 as "a tunnel under fortifications to overthrow them."
"lay explosives," 1620s, in reference to old tactic of tunneling under enemy fortifications to blow them up; a specialized sense of mine (v.1) via a sense of "dig under foundations to undermine them" (late 14c.), and miner in this sense is attested from late 13c. Related: Mined; mining.
explosive device, by 1850, from mine (v.2).

Mine is a 1973 compilation album by singer-songwriter Dolly Parton, issued by RCA's budget compilation division, RCA Camden. As was the case with Parton's 1972 RCA Camden compilation, Just the Way I Am, the album was an attempt by RCA to capitalize on Parton's early 1970s chart success by reissuing some of her lesser known material (in this case, tracks recorded between 1969 and 1970) as a budget release, for newer fans who might not have purchased her earlier albums. The majority of tracks on Mine had first appeared on Parton's 1970 album,'' The Fairest of Them All.''
RCA Camden would release two additional Parton compilations: '' I Wish I Felt This Way at Home'' (1975) and Just Because I'm a Woman (not to be confused with Parton's 1968 debut solo album for RCA of the same name) (1976); all four RCA Camden reissues would later be rereleased on the Pickwick label during the late 1970s.
"Mine" is a song written and performed by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. Produced by Swift along with Nathan Chapman, it was released as the lead single from Swift's third studio album, Speak Now (2010) by Big Machine Records. Following an unauthorized internet leak, the song was released on August 5, 2010, two weeks earlier than the intended release date. Swift was inspired to write "Mine" after reflecting on one of her unnamed crushes and explained that the song is about her tendency to run from love. The song contains elements of power-pop and its lyrics speak of the ups and downs of a young love.
Critical reception for "Mine" was mostly positive. Swift was praised for her ability to show a mature perspective on love, although some critics called the song "formulaic" for resonating her earlier works, notably " Love Story". The song was commercially successful, as well; it became a top ten hit in Australia, Canada and Japan. The single was certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA). In the United States, the song entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number three, making Swift the second female artist in the history of the Hot 100 to debut multiple tracks in the top five during a calendar year after Mariah Carey did so in 1995.
The song's accompanying music video was directed by Roman White. The video chronicles the romantic relationship between Swift and her love interest played by British actor Toby Hemingway which ends with a marriage. The music video was met with great appraise from contemporary critics who deemed it as "rather sweet," and "heartwarming." The song was performed live at numerous venues to promote Speak Now. The music video received the coveted Video of the Year Award in the CMT Music Awards 2011.

"Mine" is a futuristic R&B song, that contains Trap elements, African beats with muted modern hip-hop". Lyrically, Beyoncé reveals her everyday doubts regarding marriage and motherhood.
"Mine" received critical acclaim from music critics, who praised the song's production, Beyoncé's vocal performance and the song's breakdown. However, Drake's contributions were generally panned by critics. Following the release of the album, "Mine" charted in multiple regions, making appearances on the US Billboard Hot 100 and UK charts.
