Everybody Talks : Neon Trees

I suppose you could say it started with a whisper, as do most singles. But lately "Everybody Talks" by Utah-based group Neon Trees has been playing at a full volume just about anywhere you turn. The song is from their second album Picture Show and was first released on December 20, last year. Initially didn't do too much, which is interesting considering it's peaked at no. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. The music video currently boasts more than 10 million views. It takes place at a '50s drive-in movie theater where the band is watching themselves in a horror flick called Zombie Bikers from Hell. I first noticed the 60's pop-inspired tune when Buick featured the band in an ad touting Pandora in their cars. After that, allow me to make the embarrassing admission that I've been watching the Voice and one of the contestants covered it because sometimes the universe is determined to drive a song into your head. And then there was the Glee version, which has to be some kind of harbinger of decline, but apparently not because Neon Trees made a stop at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. So, where to now? Who knows, but I can assure you we're not done with this song. Check out the video above.
