The lyrics of the song captures a zeitgeist for the times - makes me think of our instantly gratified life in the age of "Amazon". - you can get/have everything now.  Maybe they'll use it for a commercial...

What a segue!  Jenny Lewis "See Fernando" to this song which sounds so obviously inspired by Abba's Fernando!  this is one of the many reasons I love RP!

Every time I hear this song, it reminds me of Franki Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You".  Love Arcade Fire, but this is not my favorite tune of theirs.

Not a huge fan, but our fearless music director must really like them... 27 of their songs in rotation, 2 of them played in the last 7 hours today.

Given the general state of quality in popular modern music, this still stands up above most of what you would hear on mainstream radio. I personally think it has a more Brian Eno/David Byrne vibe than an ABBA/BeeGees vibe. 
Also, lyrically, their stuff is much more interesting than most modern popular music. I admit, they are a bit repetitive and self-referencing, but I would say many popular combos over the years have made successful careers walking the same path. I'm looking at you, Pink Floyd.

Not a bad description, though I'd call it an INXS pastiche.

It sounds like German "Schlagermusik", absolutely not my taste - a 1 or this song.

This is a really talented band, but this sounds like somebody said to them "you need to record a soft pop radio hit song" .....   There is a tone of great Arcade Fire material going un-heard on RP.  Their wide-ranging talent was showcased in an absolutely epic performance with Mavis Staples on her 75th birthday video - if you get a chance to see / hear it the Arcade Fire duo Butler and Cassagne are really on "fire" with this genre busting tribute.

Disagree.  This album and track are in sync with what the band has done in the past.  Particularly their last album, which makes sense as it is the successor to Reflektor.  It's not their best album, nor is it their worst.  It is just them doing their thing.  It's usually not a good thing to compare a band's current release to one's favorites.  New albums need time to sink in.

I quite liked their turn with Mick Jagger on SNL:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHCvWgq5O3g

This came up and I recognized the intro and thought it must be some kind of recognized oldie, but turns out it's just been on heavy rotation on BBC Radio 6 along with the new Morrissey single. I don't mind it at all.
