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
[Newest]I'm very Keane on this song!

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...
[Newest]Best of the best.

This one brings tears to my eyes. I just love it.
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.
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.
[Newest]Bedshaped is a awesome song the best thing about it is the middle part so awesome.

4This 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
Beautiful song, beautiful lyrics, beautiful melody. Definitely the best!

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
[Newest]Brilliant song. Never gets old.

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!
[Newest]This song is simply out of this world... I just drift away to a different state when I listen to this song

7Sovereign 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!
[Newest]Love this song... Where I work they play this song everyday that is how I fell in love with it

8A 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.
[Newest]Got to be my favourite Keane song - a perfect mix of thoughtful lyrics and amazing instrumentation.

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!
My second favourite after 'Somewhere Only We Know'. Deserves so much more attention.


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

10Silenced by the Night
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.
Well actually most of 'all' keane's song is beautifull and amazing the way they are. But this one extremely makes me feel I really had the experience silenced by the nights haha
This is just a great song, its emocional, great, I just love it
[Newest]Amazing song... I love this song

The Contenders

11Perfect Symmetry
a truly an underrated song off a truly underrated album...
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.
I like the part when Tom sings, "Or may be you'll find life is unkind... " The melody is so nice.
[Newest]Even Tom Chaplin stated that he thought this was their best song! So underrated.

12Bend and Break
What did I just witness? This is by far my favourite song by Keane. This should at least be at the top #3.

It has great meaning and every time the song starts to play, it sends me goosebumps and breaks my heart to pieces. I get the chills whilst listening to the lyrics and the dominance of piano throughout the whole song. He sounds sweet and melancholy - it gives me the thought of vulnerability and "getting through bad times together". I will always find the song captivating and genius.
I'll met you in the light! Great techno wave and make it freak with the lyrics! Let just listening this music and make your soul fly!
Keane has a lot of beautiful songs, but I think Bend and Break is special

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
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.
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.
[Newest]Great! This intro is AMAZING guys good job with the backing track its superb Natasha Finnegan age:12 wish I could see you guys live

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.
Awesome the piano in this track is tremendous

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

I hear this song every day. This is my favourite!
This song is at the top of my list with all you songs especially everybody's changing them are the best song ever Natasha finnigan age:12

17Hamburg 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.

18Leaving So Soon?
Phenomenal on every level!

19The 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.


This song should be 1st place because its al emotional don't you think! Natasha Finnegan age:12

20On 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.
It is music genius, emotionally brilliant

21We 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...
[Newest]This song is great. It can easily cure a heartbreak with it's amazing lyrics.

22Stop for a Minute
Why it is number 22?! So overrated song, good lyrics, good beats it's so catchy I love it..


Come on guys! Number 22 does not do this song justice! At least lets get this to number 11
Its the perfect song! @! Come on!
[Newest]This song in number 22? Please!

Best Keane song by far. A bit different from their regular stuff but excellent! Shivers every time. Can't believe this isn't #1
Be honest, Atlantic is definitely 1 of TOP10 in my view!

24Try Again
Emotional song, one of the best songs
Of keane
So soothing.. definitely best song of keane

25She Has No Time
What? This is the best song ever! This and bedshaped are their two best songs! Why is this so underrated I don't understand its AMAZING literally the vocals they make me shiver and the high note I the chorus!
My sleep song, love it!

26Fly to Me
Fly to Me has beautiful lyrics and beat, sounds heavenly.
Fly to Me has beautiful lyrics and beat, sounds heavenly.
Fly to Me has beautiful lyrics and beat, sounds heavenly.

27Your Eyes Open
Its definitely a masterpiece. The chorus part is so much heart-felt..
Well, there's no competition here!

28On the Road

29Neon River

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 :/

31The 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

32Higher 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...!

33Better Than This

34My 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!
[Newest]This song should be at 1st place in my opinion.

I'm a huge KEANE fan and I love so much this song.

35Again & Again
Its very good I think this should be part of the list well I don't know for you but I loved it and I really mean it again and again is the best yet to me so again and again you should find a nice place for this song kay?
So underrated, this one should be in first place...

36The Night Sky

37Clear 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!

38Your Love
Oh, it's great, 45 isn't enough.


I should say nobody understands the true essence of this song, and that's it is on number 54, shoul be at least in top 30

41Black 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

42Love 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

43You Are Young
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.
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!
[Newest]Best song.. Must be number one

44Untitled 1
This is their best song, it's extremely underrated. Should be number 1. Do me a favor and listen to it.
Untitled 1 is a complete work of art. It has been and always will be my favorite Keane song.
I think this is the most underrated keane song there is. Untitled 1 is a work of art.

45Put It Behind You

46Black Rain

47Broken Toy

48You Don't See Me
Amazing voice from tom chaplin, very underrated
I wish tom would see me

49Sea Fog
This deserves to be much, much higher. It has the tone and rhythm of a classical hymn, but with a modern take. Well done Keane.

This one is the best Keane B-side according to me... So beautiful! Love it <3!

55Day Will Come

56Closer Now
Listen carefully to the lyrics. Lovely song.

57Wolf at the Door
How is this song not even on the list? It's AMAZING! One of Keane's best to date! Just listen to it and tell me it doesn't get you swaying!

58Watch How You Go

59Snowed Under
A beautiful song with equally excellent rhythm-"There's a cold voice in the air, and you've looking everyhere..."

60The Way You Want It
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.

61Time to Go

62Walnut Tree
Come on guys/girls we all know this is a top 10!

63Russian Farmer's Song
This could not be missed!

64Playing Along
I always turn up the volume on this song.
