Best The Black Keys Songshavatarafuye
The Top Ten
The Black Keys answer to Stairway to Heaven! And what an awesome song it is too! I can't stop listening to it!
Definitely better than Gold on the Ceiling.
This is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard. It's so lovely and slow and emotional first, and then when the drums and the electric guitar kicks in, I just want to get up and dance.
Best song, it really showcases how good his voice is, with the classic Black keys sound, it is literally the best song ever! Why the hell isn't higher, I mean, gold on the ceiling is great but, come on
Just heard it for the first time, better by far.V 42 Comments
This is the song that made me love these guys. It beats everything else on this list. I've gotten many of my friends hooked on the Keys because of this song.
This is the song that got me hooked onto the Black Keys and got me listening to all of their other great music such as Little Black Submarines. A truly great band that uses actual instruments and good vocals to write amazing songs.
I love the music and the beat to this song, why is tighten up higher than this, I don't understand. This has a great melody and the lyrics a really catchy while tighten up doesn't have nearly as good lyrics as this song. The Black Keys are now one of my favorite bands because of this song. BLACK KEYS RULE
Great catchy tune. Good song. - Userguy44V 13 Comments
SIMPLY THE BEST OF ALL, WITH GRAMMY WIN IN BEST DUO CATEGORY - havatarafuye
This is the first song I heard by the duo and it has still remained my favorite by them. It's nothing short of perfection
This song just makes my day!
And when the beat changes towards the end...
It just sets my heart racing
Hats off guys
The music video is the best!V 15 Comments
The amazing first single for the album El Camino. Rolling Stone praised the song, giving it four out of five stars, saying that "Frustrated desire is the song's ostensible theme... But for Keys fans, this is a clean hit of instant gratification. " I loved the music video- that dance was precious!
This is an amazing exception to the old "they don't make music like they used to" saying.
Gives you that feel of the old 70s with the touch of modern rock. Ultimate feel provided whole together. Gets your spirits all high. Super energetic song. The simply changes the mood with keeping in account the feel which can never be lost. Must for every single lonely boy in the towm.. Keep rocking, cheers.. M/
Amazing single for El Camino album but He'll of A Season, Sister, and Dead and Gone are close 2nds!V 8 Comments
This song is not only by far the best of Turn Blue, but one of their best ever. Bass line, guitar solo, drums all work perfectly to create this amazing song
The buildup, calming voice, then powerful guitar solo make for the best Black Keys song I've ever heard. - Songsta41
The build up in this song is so amazing and then it hits the guitar solo... so good. This song sets the tone for the whole turn blue album and is the best song on it in my opinion. Also this song is amazing in concert.
Austin City Limits it was most Amazing song.V 15 Comments
Always puts me in a good mood, His falsetto voice is unbelievable so calming and pure. Should definitely be higher on the list. :(
Most beautiful, soulful, borderline R&B song (yet still completely rocking) song on brothers. Worth the listen, every time.
How the heck is this not higher?! Amazing vocals by Auerbach and a subtle but amazing buildup from start to finish?! Come on people
So good and so underrated probabaly one of my favourite songs atmV 7 Comments
You haven't properly experienced this song until you see them play it live. The rock in this song is so much stronger than his other songs. Go listen to it right now!
The Black Keys finish strong, I Got Mine is what they use to close their shows. This song is top 3, at worst!
The live versions of this song all feature a completely random and epic solo and close the concerts with perfection. Just so much energy!
4%? People really need to listen to this! No. 1 no questionV 2 Comments
Huge Keys fan, this is probably their best (although there are too many to really choose a clear best. )
Love this song its just classic black keys. If you are rating this top ten solely based on popularity than I understand why this is so low.
This and sinister kid should be top ten at the very least
Fills up the room...
Anyone who doesn't have this in their top 10 Black Keys songs, well they shouldn't be making a Black Keys list in the first place. What an amazing song... - TragedyBound27
This is one of their best songs with simple rock guitar and no keyboards bringing the thickness of the guitar down. This song should be higher.
Great song. Maybe not their best, but definitely in the Top ten!
It the best song on their best albumV 1 Comment
"It's True, Baby I'm Howling For You! " Really catchy and amazingly creative
It kicks! The drums are the best. And who did not see trailer (video), it's like parody of Hollywood movie - then you must see it.
This is something else! It sets you on right fro the beginning to the end!
How can this be so low, to me this one is life changing.V 8 Comments
HOLY CRAP! This song is so cool. There is no way that someone can't like this, unless, of course, they're crazy!
If it was worthy of being in Grand Theft Auto IV then it most definitely belongs in the top ten
This is THE best alt rock song ever. the guitar is so cool. I love to play it
This song has an amazing riff, should be higher. - Songsta41
Really awesome riff. It's amazing how the Black Keys are just two people. They create ideas that are the views of many. SO awesome!
Definitely should be higher. No question.
This is their worst song in a long time and should not be in this list at all. It's a weak pop version designed to appeal to the masses.
Best song from their newest album (2014) called Turn Blue.
Great song.. Obviously inspired by Pink Floyd - BrianScott01V 8 Comments
I think this is my favourite song by the black keys, why is it so low?!
Why the hell is this not no. 1. Let alone not in the top 5
Great song, doesn't stop moving, Carney is really on point in this too.
Transcending 🙉V 4 Comments
Simply there best song ever! Sit back, crank it up, and love it!
And a famous quote from White Men can't Jump ".. Look man, you can listen to Jimi but you can't hear him. There's a difference man. Just because you're listening to him doesn't mean you're hearing him... "
God, what a soulful music
Bloody great song, should definitely be higher, but I can't say I'm surprised that all their mainstream stuff is up top, while amazing songs like this go unrecognized, like if you're not a real fan and you haven't heard half of these songs, why are you voting? You don't have a broad enough perspective yet, which is fine, just listen to more of their music!
Simple, but an unforgettable riff. Dan's voice suits that blue's guitar amazingly well.
So good. If you don't know it you can't be a true fan

This song adds so many awesome components plus an awesome beat. Definitely one of their best ones
So many awesome songs by tjese guys, but this one takes the cake.
Its also very underrated in my opinion. Good to see it on this list. Proves that Keys Fans have awesome taste! :) now if only I could learn to play that awesome solo...
This song is REALLY catchy and just AMAZING all in all.
Should be top ten at least
So catchy and rad and guitars and
Best black keys song EVER! ^_^
Best song of BK!
First of all it's based on a real life story! Secondly, it's just awesome. This Tighten up Gold on the Ceiling and Lonely Boy are the best
Needs to be higher on the list
I'm amazed this isn't at least top 15
How is this not higher?!? The intro of "Lean forward slightly, Look straight at
The speaker and listen with a sparkle
In your eye as though you might be thinking
'gee this is the most wonderful thing
I've ever heard in all my life'" just immediately sets you up for an incredible guitar riff that hooks you for the whole track. My favourite song
Really? If you do not have this song in your top ten, then you are not a fan of The Black Keys
Amazing guitar riff just listen to it I guarantee you'll you it
Totally The Black Keys!
So full of sound! A great song.
This an underrated song. Amazing rhythm and the guitar solo is so good!.
This song is one of their besrt
My favorite song by the Black Keys, the song sounds great when at both of the tempos it switches to and the lyrics are very meaningful
I love this song it's the best they ever made
Best black keys riff sounds like Hendrix
Best off magic potion
One of the best! Top 5V 1 Comment
LISTEN to the guitar riff in the CHORUS and you will be hooked! Love this song!
I think this is the best song by the black keys. so underrated
Good stuff but seems underrated. The music is mixed pretty well, catchy touch in guitar and bass, plus fun stomping drum. The tempo is amazingly addicting.
Amazing! So catchy, a mint summer tune, and along with nova baby, the best off the album by far!
My favorite on el camino
The intro to this song on its own is so great, it displays Dan's amazing talent for guitar. The story told by song is so clear to understand and such a great showcase of good blues-inspired rock music
So underrated, but one of their best in my opinion. It's right up there with The Lengths as far as slow dance songs. This one's a masterpiece
Wow! How is this at 51? Deserves to be in the top 10 at least!
The song speaks for its self.
Love this! Should definitely be much higher
Rock and roll, sweetheart!
This proves that these guys are true rockers and rollers. Every great band needs a great slow dance song and this is it for them. The Lengths!
Love this song. A little less of blues and more of roots rock. Great song, great band, and awesome note bending in this particular song.
Just a beautiful and emotional song
All time favorite song!
Always thought this song was one of the more popular ones...
Ohh come on this is to good to be 42nd!
Gritty and powerful
My favorite black keys song
Wait a while, I bet this song will be higher! Best song off new album!
Love the sound of this one.
Easily one of their most beautiful songs. Very underrated, but with so many songs, many of them will end up being underrated.
Favorite song off of Brothers
This song is very underrated!
Amazing riff! So catchy
The riff is simply amazing, the solo beautiful, everything about this song is perfect besides the fact that my speakers won't go loud enough to do it justice!
