Blink 182 – Feeling This


"Feeling This" is a song by American rock band Blink-182, released on October 2, 2003 as the lead single from the group's fifth studio album, Blink-182 (2003). The lyrics of the song, written by guitarist Tom DeLonge, bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker, are purely sexual in nature: the band attempted to juxtapose lust and passion between verses and choruses, thematically connected with a wistful, regretful tone. The song's composition contains elements of spoken word in the verses and a Latin-inspired backbeat in the chorus, and the song ends in a melodic, harmonized duet split between DeLonge and Hoppus. "Feeling This" was the first track that came together for Blink-182 in early 2003. The lyrics were written with Hoppus and DeLonge going into separate rooms--Hoppus writing the choruses and DeLonge writing the verses. The two had not spoken to each other about the lyrics ahead of time, and it turned out that the two had both written about sexual intercourse. When put together, the song represents the lustful side of sex during the verses, the passionate side in the bridge and the romantic side in the chorus, creating a juxtaposition between both voices. It has been interpreted as a description for failed romance, one that "illustrates a scenario of lust, ambivalence and regret."
