Every inch of sky's got a star
Every inch of skin's got a scar
I guess we've got everything now

Every inch of space in your head
Is filled up with the things that you read
I guess you've got everything now

Everything you've ever seen
Fills the spaces up in your dreams
You've got everything now

(Everything now)
(Everything now)

Every inch of road's got a sign
And every boy uses the same line
You've just done everything now

Every song that I've ever head
Is playing at the same time, it's absurd
It reminds me, we've got everything now

Turn the speakers up till they break
Cos every time you smile it's a fake!
Stop pretending, you've got...

Everything now! (I need it)
Everything now! (I want it)
Everything now! (Can't live without it)
Everything now!
Everything now!
Everything now!

Every inch of earth's got a town
Daddy, how come you never come round?
I miss you, like everything now

We won't need the food in your stove
Leave your car in the middle of the road
Just help your family with everything now

Turn the speakers up till they break
Cos every time you smile it's a fake!
Stop pretending, you've got...

Everything now! (I need it)
Everything now! (I want it)
Everything now! (I can't live without it)
Everything now!
Everything now!
Everything now!

Everything now! (I need it)
Everything now! (I want it)
Everything now! (I can't live without it)
Everything now!

La La La La La La La
La La La La La La La

Everything now! (I need it)
Everything now! (I want it)
Everything now! (I can't live without it)
Everything now!
Everything now!
Everything now!

Can we get back again
Can we get back again
From everything now

The lyrics of the song captures a zeitgeist for the times - makes me think of our instantly gratified life in the age of "Amazon". - you can get/have everything now.  Maybe they'll use it for a commercial...

"Needs more ABBA"
Needs true ABBA!
 
I just came here to ask if this was an ABBA song! {#Roflol}
"Needs more ABBA"
Needs true ABBA!

What a segue!  Jenny Lewis "See Fernando" to this song which sounds so obviously inspired by Abba's Fernando!  this is one of the many reasons I love RP!
I hear the Waterboys. Not a bad thing.
Every time I hear this song, it reminds me of Franki Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You".  Love Arcade Fire, but this is not my favorite tune of theirs.

 AAHAH I felt the same! Arcade fire? can't be! and then.... 


Not a huge fan, but our fearless music director must really like them... 27 of their songs in rotation, 2 of them played in the last 7 hours today. 
Abba? Bee Gees? Simple Minds? Yvonne Elliman?  Heck, I'm hearing Eddie Money!

Given the general state of quality in popular modern music, this still stands up above most of what you would hear on mainstream radio. I personally think it has a more Brian Eno/David Byrne vibe than an ABBA/BeeGees vibe. 
Also, lyrically, their stuff is much more interesting than most modern popular music. I admit, they are a bit repetitive and self-referencing, but I would say many popular combos over the years have made successful careers walking the same path. I'm looking at you, Pink Floyd. 

 
Everything (now) this guy said!
where's that psd button ?
I'm a Montrealer : What a boring band.

Not a bad description, though I'd call it an INXS pastiche.
It sounds like German "Schlagermusik", absolutely not my taste - a 1 or this song.

This is a really talented band, but this sounds like somebody said to them "you need to record a soft pop radio hit song" .....   There is a tone of great Arcade Fire material going un-heard on RP.  Their wide-ranging talent was showcased in an absolutely epic performance with Mavis Staples on her 75th birthday video - if you get a chance to see / hear it the Arcade Fire duo Butler and Cassagne are really on "fire" with this genre busting tribute.

The whole program was awesome.



 
Disagree.  This album and track are in sync with what the band has done in the past.  Particularly their last album, which makes sense as it is the successor to Reflektor.  It's not their best album, nor is it their worst.  It is just them doing their thing.  It's usually not a good thing to compare a band's current release to one's favorites.  New albums need time to sink in.

I quite liked their turn with Mick Jagger on SNL:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHCvWgq5O3g

I honestly thought Arcade Fire couldn't get any worse than dull and pretentious.
That was before this song: bad Ultravox cover act 😝

 
+1 Pretentious hipster stuff, nothing to hear here. Awful.
This came up and I recognized the intro and thought it must be some kind of recognized oldie, but turns out it's just been on heavy rotation on BBC Radio 6 along with the new Morrissey single. I don't mind it at all.
