The Top Ten

Somewhere Only We Know
This song belongs at #1. I am a huge fan of Keane and I love all the songs on this page. But this song is best suited where it's at because it has a beautifully addictive magic within the very depths of what this masterpiece truly is. This song will always be at #1 forever.
The lyrics, piano and the guitars blend together in a magnificent way... The song takes you to a distant place.. It simply 'makes you complete'!
like the vocals and piano

2Everybody's Changing
I believe this should # 1... It's keane's identity song... You know the first time I've heard this song... Until now it is still keep playing in my heart and mind... The best song ever made... Very inspiring... Whenever I'm upset I just listen to this song... And that's it... My day is complete... I hope keane knew how much I admired the band... Not just because their hot guys... But I fell in love first with the song...
One of the very best. Really loved this song. One of my favorites. Should have been number 1.
A truly beautiful song that'll make you sing whenever you hear it...

3This Is the Last Time
Although it is propelled by the fantastic piano like many Keane songs, this gets my vote due to the Coldplay-esque emotion Chaplin puts into singing the excellent lyrics. The high point of the bands best album, it should be No. 1
I feel happy when I play this songs
What can I say fantastic

This song is angelic and poignant to anthems. I believe it is one of Keanes best songs and should be voted as an all time classic.
This one brings tears to my eyes. I just love it.
Bedshaped is the best song for me. Hopes and Fears the best album. It is sad that they did not continue with the same style like Hopes and Fears.

Extremely underrated, not just on this list but in general. It should have been a number 1 hit in the UK when it first came out. Never gets old.
The most catchy song I listened in a long, long time.
I came here to vote this song.Its that good...- mask7

6Nothing In My Way
I has a good beat and they sing it really well
Simply one of the best songs from Keane. Good beat, good vocals, but the best part of the song are the lyrics! Top notch music!

7A Bad Dream
This is one of my favourite songs ever! It's really catchy and generally amazing, cannot believe it isn't number one!
Really catchy. I was suprised it only just made the top 10. This one has been in my head for weeks and I don't know if I will ever get it out.
This is the song that got it all started for me. I challenged myself to listen to all the other potential top ten songs and this one wins out easy for me. Catchy lyrics and full bodied sound.

8Sovereign Light Cafe
This song definitely deserves a spot in the top 10. This songs has an amazing beat and a great meaning. To never forget where you came from. Even though you might be born somewhere and end up somewhere else during life, you should never forget about where you came from, because where you came from makes you an individual apart from others.
This song means a lot to me and is poignant of my childhood. It is also masterfully sung. The lyrics are beautiful and evocative.
How can this be possible! This songs totally deserves to be #1!

9Crystal Ball
Come on! THIS IS KEANE'S BEST SONG. I have loved Keane and their music and I found it hard to choose a song to vote for but I would have expected this song to be at least in the top 5!
Best of the best after everybody's changing
love it so much like I never stop singing I love keane keep singing... Indonesia loves you
My second favourite after 'Somewhere Only We Know'. Deserves so much more attention.

10Silenced by the Night
This movie is so addictive, it keeps getting better n better everytime you watch. One of the most interesting thrillers of all time. Brad Pitt should been nominated for an Oscar along with Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter & Meat Loaf, all playing good parts in this legendary piece of work. Definitely David fincher's best work


This is song is probably the most underrated of all. This one is a piece of art and should be among the best 3 without a doubt.
This is just a great song, its emocional, great, I just love it

12Perfect Symmetry
a truly an underrated song off a truly underrated album...
I like the part when Tom sings, "Or may be you'll find life is unkind... " The melody is so nice.
How can this song not be no. 1. It's by far the best keane song ever and one of the best songs of all time.

13Is It Any Wonder?
Woo! This is their best song for me. I love the entire song, the beat, the lyrics. This song should be number one, far better than everybodys changing
Great intro, driving beat, lots of energy and still a message with the song. Could listen ti it forever and it would never get old.
It's great. Its more catchy than most of their songs and sounds more like rock. It has a great message, like peace and cooperation. It's one of those songs that just stays with you forever.

14The Frog Prince

Not so much (or at all) for the subject matter as the music--this song just wipes me out and evokes memories of growing up. I haven't been this smitten with a song in many years. I had to buy the sheet music and I'm writing my own lyrics to it just for myself.

15Can't Stop Now
This is just an amazing song. I can't live without it

16Hamburg Song
This is one of the best Keane songs. The lyrics are so deep and powerful, and the rhythm is catchy along them
One of the prettiest songs ever written
One of the keane's best.
At least should be in top 20s.

17Leaving So Soon?
Phenomenal on every level!

18On a Day Like Today
this is the best song in the world FULL STOP! only linkin park's crawling and muse's uprising come close
It might be a little repetitive but the song has a melancholic tone partnered with varying vocal, triggering emotions within the listener.

19We Might As Well Be Strangers
I first heard this song in 2004 in a football compilation, since this post I've listened to it at least a million times, it's my ringtone, my alarm, my (our) wedding song, it's very simple, it is THE BEST SONG EVER MADE IN HISTORY, the instrumental is staggering, and the vocals are astonishing, and what makes it better is that it does'nt have a music video, so leave it all to imagination, I now... I spoke too much...
This is my favourite from their first album. Heck, it's my favourite from all their albums!
Best song ever, enough said...

Its an awesome song. Its special. It contains everything. It is also very touching.

23The Lovers Are Losing
I really love this song, the part where the chorus starts brings me a electric feel, but all the song give me a strange feeling. Definitely one of the best of one of the best bans ever
HOW IS THIS AT NUMBER 27! This song deserves to be at least in the top 5.

I hear this song every day. This is my favourite!
I feel like I just don't know you anymore
But I've been burned and I've been down so many times
We walk in circles
The blind leading the blind
We've been disconnected somehow

29Higher Than the Sun
Newest Keane song... Great one even though it didn't get all Keaners satisfied.
The song is amazing, unique for its lyrics, "Oh whispers low, like a friend you never knew was there".. So yes, ALL Keane songs take us Higher Than The Sun...!
Listen to sample

30My Shadow
What the hell I was hoping this would be top 10 or at least top 20. This song is absolutely beautiful, the melody is just really nice. "Shine a light on me... and you will see my shadow"
Like their earliest piano ballads but with more soul and maturity.


Heart wrenchingly beautiful! This song never gets old for me... Great memories!

34Black Burning Heart
I can't stop listening to this song. It's amazing, Tom's voice is (if it's possible) more wonderful than usually on this one. The French version is even better.
This song is amazing, it is a b side of Night Train, there is one french version of this song.
Great lyrics, makes me cry
Listen to sample

The song that stands for the album title. So beautifull. Unbelievable it is only in the special editions! Way better than other songs on the album!
Just like Under the Iron Sea Great song from Strangeland
This should be in second without any doubt :/
Listen to sample

36Love is the End
Are you serious? This song should be way up higher on this list. It's a great song with astonishingly heartfelt lyrics and the bridge and final chorus are just heartbreakingly beautiful. One of Keane's best in my opinion.
38th? Are you kidding? :) this song is way better
Top song very worthy of top 10-20
Listen to sample

37Put It Behind You Listen to sample

38Clear Skies

Shocked this is so far down the list! Incredible song with interesting instrumentation and a killer hook! Reminds me a bit of Love my way by the Psychedelic Furs with a little Radiohead tossed in and lots of KEANE!

39The Starting Line
Been a fan of keane since day 1. I think this latest album tips the balance away from the original. A shame it was never as a single release... May be my present frame of mind and what has influenced me recently but this song holds great lyrics I can relate to. You need to have been there to know. Is it possible this was written from the heart? Keane have changed with the times and every album has been brilliant. For me this album just beats the great "Hopes and Fears". Here's to many more years of keane!
The instrumentation, cadence, message and vocal tone are so fundamentally Keane that this track deserves a place in the Top 10, along with the sublime Sovereign Light Cafe. Keane returned to their best form when they released Strangeland.
This is by far the best song I've ever heard. It's both sad and happy at the same time. The vocal, chorus, piano, basically everything is perfect. At least it should have its way on to the top 10 easily. Listen

Same style as the Hamburg Song. It has a slow beat, emotionally charged lyrics and, while less well known is still one of my top 20 Keane songs.
Listen to sample

54Won't Be Broken

55You Are Young
The best tune in "Strangeland" and, by far, the song I have listened to the most during the past twelve months. Perfect lyrics, beautiful melody and a superb piano riff that made me fall in love with Keane again.
This is the best song off the new "Strangeland" album. It has an amazing flow and a great message. This song should be in the TOP 10 because it is a lot better than other Keane songs! VOTE IT UP!
Probably the best song off the new album "Strangeland. " Whenever I hear this song I feel a jolt of happiness fly through my body. This songs meaning is that you have to help the world, and you will benefit from it.
