Moondance track listing

The song is the fastest on the album. It is in 12/8 time and features more prominent acoustic guitar than other tracks on Moondance where the piano is the main instrument. A notable feature of the intro is a clavinet. A hard but sparse drumbeat is offset by a melody played on the flute throughout the song, including a solo after the second chorus.

Morrison has said "'Everyone' is just a song of hope, that's what that is."[1]

The song was used for the final shot of the film The Royal Tenenbaums,[2] but did not appear on any of the film's soundtrack releases.
