Feeling This

Album: blink-182 (2003)
Charted: 15
  • This is a song about sex. Bassist Mark Hoppus and guitarist Tom DeLonge had an idea to go into two separate rooms and write, and an hour later come out with what they had. When they left each room, they discovered that they had both written about sex. Tom had written the verses about the physical aura ("I wanna take off her clothes"), while Mark wrote about the chorus and bridge about the passionate side ("Place your hand in mine"). >>

  • Courtney from Attleboro, MaWho knew a song about sex could be so intense.? !
  • Sara from Medford, Nj I miss blink 182......i remember hearing all the small things right around when it came out on valentines day in the car with my dad. i was 1st grade at the time back in like 1998. i didn't know who they were but i do now being a sophmore in HS obviously. I really want blink 182 to come back, punk rock isn't very cool anymore it all kinda change. they really were the band that kept it alive. all the other bands kinda gave into fame and it sounds different like good charlotte and stuff but not blink.
  • Max from Loveland, Cothis is a very good song.. but how the **** could someone think this was about a prostitute?!?!?
  • Sara from Austin, Txthis song is amazing. i had no idea that it was written seprately! that explains so much.
    i never paid the song that much attention 'til recently and now i listen to it over and over. Blink's awesomeness cannot be put into words. i think that's why they write music ;)
    but if you look in the liner notes of the Greatest Hits album, you can find the correct lyrics. i adore how they overlap Tom and Mark. that effect is so cool!

  • Kaylee from Marysville, WaTessa, its what they're talking about in the box above. Mark anf Tom both wrote different lyrics, but then they sang them over eachother. one is "Are we alone, do you fell it so lost and disallusioned"-Tom and the other "Fate fell short this time, your smile fades in the summer. place youre hand in mine, I'll leave when i wanna."-Mark. Help any? i dont think anyone;s talking backwards...

  • Isaac from Sd, Cagreat song but really tired of all the sex songs these days

  • Charlotte from Leeds, EnglandI also cried when i found out that they'd split! I was totaly devastated!
  • Charlotte from Leeds, EnglandI never really used to be into blink 182 untill i got out with a lad who is really into them so when i first heard this song it was sung to me by him, it made me want to listen more so i went out and baught there album Blink 182 and im so glad i did because they are just... i can't describe how amazing they are!
  • Casie from Denver, CoBlink 182 rocks the house! I love em,alot of ppl say their pop but their punk. The video was realy cool,I love the song. For them it ment that the person left and misses her but he doesnt feel anything anymore because he is never with her but still dreams of her but when their back toegether they think of the old times and fall back in love again. Thats what happend to me,I fell in love with someone so deep and it hurt but I moved and I dont feel the same anymore but I dream of him but it doesnt feel the same because Im not with him.
  • Jade from England, Englandthe dudes rock and nearly close to break down wen heard they 'split'

  • Luke from Maple Grove, MnWow what a catchy song. I dont really care for them but wow they can write great catchy songs.
  • Chris from Melbourne, Australiathis song is easilly their best song ever! blink 182 are an awesome band and i contemplated suicide when i heard they were having a 'break'.
  • Ginette from Richmond Hill, CanadaThe intro to this song sounds suspiciously like that of "Rock and Roll" by Led Zeppelin.
  • Elle from Uk, United StatesIts the emotional sentimental side of love then the lusting, over rated sex with the lust in it. mark and tom just took thier own ideas and made this hit!
  • Ashley from London, Englandi love feeling this best song ever i think and if you leave me your number i can send you the ring tone for it (polyfonic one)
  • Clairey from Belfast, IrelandI like chorus where Tom screams. it was done in a huuuge living room and Tom was about 20ft away from the mic and was screaming it at the top of his lungs. according to my friend Gemz, it sounds like he's in the loo straining, ha ha!
  • Liz from Chico, CaI love this song!!! Even the music video is awesome. This is one of the songs that actually made me look more at Blink-182 thought I already had a cd of theirs. But this song made me want them all!!!
  • Gabe from Utica, NyThis is the best song on the album! I love Blink-182! The old blink is just as good. They really didn't change a lot. The only difference in that they don't have sick lyrics in most of their songs. This song and "All The Small Things" are the songs tht got me into Blink-182
