Everybody Talks

String Quartet

Music & Lyrics by Tim Pagnotta and Tyler Glenn

This chart is a string quartet arrangement of the Neon Trees’ song ‘Everybody Talks’ in the original key of Eb.

The instrumentation is:

  • Violin I
  • Violin II
  • Viola
  • Cello

The violins share the melody. Violins and viola play ensemble sections at the end.

Everybody Talks” is the lead single from the second studio album, Picture Show, by American rock band Neon Trees.

The song has an early ’60s feel, which frontman Tyler Glenn told Rolling Stone is indicative of what the band was listening to at the time. “We fell in love with a lot of like Roy Orbison and the Motown music that my dad listens to,” he said.
