Everyone into Position is the second studio album by British progressive rock band Oceansize, released on 19 September 2005 on Beggars Banquet. The album marked the final appearance of bassist Jon Ellis.

According to vocalist/guitarist Mike Vennart: "at the beginning of 'Ornament/The Last Wrongs' there are all these weird ambient noises and what it was is that a friend of ours was in the Amazon jungle and recorded all these parrots. They sounded like kids laughing and shouting, not parrots."[6]

Use in media[edit]

"Music For A Nurse" was used in an ad campaign for Orange, while "Meredith" was used in an episode of the OC. Both "Music For A Nurse" and "Meredith" have also been used in the BBC drama series Waterloo Road. "Music For A Nurse" was used in the 2007 movie The Invisible during the ending and credits and was included on the soundtrack for the film.
