"Talk Talk" is a 1982 song by the British band Talk Talk. The second single from their debut album, The Party's Over (1982), it topped at no. 52 in the United Kingdom upon initial release. A remix of the song was released later in the same year where it peaked at no. 23 in the UK and number 75 in the United States. The single also reached no. 1 in South Africa in 1983. Influential modern rock radio station KROQ-FM in Los Angeles included this song in its regular rotation of current releases from July–August 1982.

The song was originally recorded by Talk Talk singer Mark Hollis's previous band, The Reaction, as "Talk Talk Talk Talk", on the Beggars Banquet punk compilation Streets.
