Ghost On The Dance Floor breaks my fucking heart. I can't put into words what that song means to me.
The first time I heard it, I couldn't even close my mouth. I just sat there, jaw on the fucking ground, unable to form words, unable to form THOUGHTS. I had chills everywhere, and I couldn't even breathe.
It's not only the fact that this is the first album my favourite band in the whole world has put out in years. Believe me, I was fangirling about that when I first started playing the album.
It's so much more than that with this song. It's absolutely everything I feel, it's every thought I have in my head when I'm trying to fall asleep at night, it's every thought I have in the morning after waking up from the same dream. This song is my emotions, given words and put to music.
When I first got Neighborhoods, I was stupidly excited. I turned off every light in my room, I turned my phone off, and I put my headphones on. Ghost On The Dance Floor started off the album. The first verse pretty much slapped me in the face. I stopped fangirling. I stopped screaming, I stopped squealing, I stopped fucking breathing. Every word hit me square in the chest, and then..
Then God invented chills.
Every single time I listen to it, that line gets me. That line gives me chills like nothing I've ever felt before. You will never see me sit through this song without goosebumps everywhere.
When I saw blink-182 last year in Dallas, they played this song. You hear about those people crying at concerts, and you think in your head, "What a dumbass." Yeah, well fuck you. I was in tears when they played Ghost On The Dance Floor. I set my camera down, and I stood there. I fucking stood there, staring at Tom as he sang. This song pierced through me and surrounded me, and I just cried. It was not pretty. There I was - sweaty, makeup running down my face, hair pulled back and stuck to my forehead, tears pouring out of my eyes, sobbing. It was gross.
Nothing in the world has ever felt more perfect.
People ask me all the time why blink-182 is my favourite band. I have a number of answers, a number of reasons, but when it gets right down to it.. I love blink-182 because of songs like this. Songs like Ghost On The Dance Floor prove that no other band gets me like blink does. They got me when I was younger, they broke up, they got back together, and then they got me on a totally different level. blink-182 grew up with me. blink-182 is a part of me.
My pants are off right now.
