Girls And Boys In School (3:32)

Cover of Habits

From Habits

Like their name, Neon Trees are a combination of slick pop hooks and sturdy organic rock, both melodic and hard-hitting, their anthems of adolescent angst, longing, love lost and found, delivered with the kind of heart-on-the-sleeve passion that only comes from hard work and commitment.

“Girls and Boys in School” speaks for itself, with a playground chant over a dark yet sing-along synth-pop chorus. Chris Allen has a quirky, edgy Johnny Marrr-meets-The Edge guitar playing while drummer Elaine Bradley drums with the intensity of John Bonham adding a heartbeat to the sensuality of the songs.

    "Questions for questions ... I've got a question ... would you ever dance with me like that?" ---- Reeks of New Order and 80's dance-rock ... love it.

    definately the best song off their album habits, if not their best in general

    I was just listening to this song on YouTube and came here to say the same thing someone else already said about The Little Ones' "Lovers Who Uncover". Well, now I don't have to. Neat! I'll stick to The Little Ones, thanks.

    I just realized this song totally rips off Lovers who Uncover by The Little Ones. Seriously, same thing except for the chorus. [2] Was about to say the same thing.
