Roxy’s Retro 4/29/21 Neon Trees “Everybody Talks”

I GREW UP IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE…ACTUALLY, YOU GO TO THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, TAKE THE Y ON THE GRAVEL ROAD TO THE RIGHT, KEEP PLOWING FORTH FOR ABOUT 2 MILES AND THAT’S WHERE I GREW UP! HAD 25 STUDENTS IN MY HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATING CLASS…THERE MAY BE SMALLER TOWNS, BUT NOT BY MUCH! WE MOVED THERE WHEN I WAS 9 AND I LEARNED QUICKLY THAT IN SMALL TOWN LIVING YOU ARE OFTEN SUBJECT TO GOSSIP…ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A BIT DIFFERENT. MY MOM TOLD ME EARLY ON, “IF THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT YOU, THEY ARE LEAVING SOMEONE ELSE ALONE”…AND “WHAT DO YOU CARE WHAT “THEY” THINK”…SOOOO WHEN THE UPBEAT ALT-ROCK SINGLE FROM THE NEON TREES, “EVERYBODY TALKS” HIT IN 2011, I SMILED AND CHUCKLED….IT TOOK ME BACK TO MY SMALL TOWN LIFE, AND IT MADE ME WANT TO DANCE! REMEMBER ‘EVERYBODY TALKS” BUT WHO CARES! ~ROXY
