10 Songs With “Everybody”

“Everybody” pertains to people, and in songs, it was mere about telling people to do things. It was also used to inviting people or what they do

R.E.M.- Everybody Hurts
This is a very emotional song and was one of my favorite 1990s ballad. When “everybody” hurts, we just have to consider people. The song was one of the known songs of the band which reached top 10 in countries. It’s music video has been popular too.

Backstreet Boys- Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)
Backstreet Boys became popular as this song which serves as a come back song for a new album (internationally) went multi-platinum worldwide. It just asks “everybody” to rock their body.

C+C Music Factory- Gotta Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)
One of the most notable electronic dance track in early 1990s, this song has no real meaning but just invites “everybody” to dance. According to Billboard, it went to number 1 in Hot 100.

Tears for Fears- Everybody Wants to Rule the World
This is one of the best “everybody” songs I knew. The message is clear in the title alone The New Wave song ruled the world charts in the 80’s and even had Lorde do her own cover.

5ive- Everybody Get Up
The song is just one of the introductory songs of the boyband and invites “everybody” to get up. The song was a big hit in their hometown, UK.

JLS- Everybody in Love
Back to back with another UK boyband, this R&B “everybody” song for those in love went to UK number 1.

John Legend- Everybody Knows
Just another sad love song which “everybody” knows that no one knows. It charted in Billboard R&B charts.

Keane- Everybody’s Changing
This song is one of my favorite Keane song. It was a top ten hit in their home country, UK, but also charted in many countries. It’s like you cannot catch up as “everybody” is changing.

A pop rock song from the Aussie guys which performed modestly. It’s just telling ‘hey’ to “everybody”. It was just released recently.
