Top Ten Best Keane Songs

The Top Ten

1 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

I LOVE THIS SONG! I don't like how people hate the fact that is it famous because of Glee, that's where I first heard it, so I'm quite grateful. I also don't think they ruined the song, I think they actually did a good job. Thank you Keane and thank you Glee.

2 Everybody'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...

A song I just can't stop listening

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...

3 This is the Last Time

Great song of a great band. - Userguy44

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 really love that piano and drums and then those lyrics in the chorus. I sometimes can't stop listening to it! This song was the song that my mother was listening to right before I was born so it has a special place in my heart, but anyway the song itself is the best out of Keane's. No disrespect to the other songs which are still amazing (I was stuck between this and Everybody's Changing), but this is the absolute best.

Never get bored to listen to this song!

4 Crystal 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. - sameera62

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

Oh my gawd! this song is just too perfect
Keane is awesome

5 Bedshaped

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.

Bedshaped is the most meaningful of all of Keane's songs, the music video is so powerful and heart-wrenching. It is a classic, poignant song that will stand the test of time - absolutely number 1.

6 Sovereign Light Cafe

Reminds me of riding bikes as a kid. Fantastic song. One of my favorites of ALL songs.

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!

7 Perfect Symmetry

Easily their best song. That masterful A-ha style hook is just utterly sublime.

Easily their best song.

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.

a truly an underrated song off a truly underrated album...

8 Nothing in My Way

THIS SONG TRAVELS ME TO THE HEAVEN!
THIS SONG WAS MADE FOR ALL THE LONELY SOULS...

My all time favourite song. Do I need to say more? Catchy intro and amazing voice. It’s perfection in my eyes... or ears! Haha

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!

9 Silenced 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.

Great song! A true Poem! The author expresses very deep feelings

Good song from album strangeland

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

10 A Bad Dream

It is an amazing song. It makes me feel empowered, I look back at my ex relationship and all the problems it brought me, and this song makes me confront them all. Wake up and do your thing because no one will rescue you kind of song... Just beautiful.

This is one of my favourite songs ever! It's really catchy and generally amazing, cannot believe it isn't number one!

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.

This song is incredibly meaningful. If I'm about to cry my eyes out I'll listen to this song, it just.. Feels empowering. It's beautiful, in composer and lyrically. Can't believe it's only 10..

The Contenders

11 Hamburg Song

Simple, yet deep and meaningful.

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 best songs. Sadly underrated but so pure with love

12 Spiralling

Very chill n never runs dry

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.

Possibly a showcase of the artistic genius behind Keane and their sound. Although it differs greatly to the rock ingested theme of Under the Iron Sea and the piano driven pop of Hopes and Fears, this is truly one of Keane's greatest masterpieces.

This one is one of my favorites- especially because it's pretty different than most of Keane's music, and yet they do it so well!

13 Bend & Break

This is the best keane song

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

14 Leaving So Soon?

Phenomenal on every level!

Addictive song

15 Disconnected

I've heard this song since I was 12 years old awesome! - Lordvader3500

Love this song

I hear this song every day. This is my favourite!

I love pretty much all the songs, but this one really sticks out. It sounds so different, yet feels similar to the rest of the band's work.

16 Can't Stop Now

This is just an amazing song. I can't live without it

Amazing vocals! Especially the first version of it (not the one in the album!)

Motion keeps my heart running

Yes higher

17 Atlantic

I love this song with all my heart. It is probably my favourite after "Leaving so soon (which should be #1 by the way, (why isn't that song even on the list though? )). Personally, "Atlantic" reminds me of the thin line between sorrow and beauty. It makes us appreciate life.

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!

The best song of Keane by far!. #1!

18 The 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.

Should be a top 5 guys. For me it’s the perfect Keane song. Uses the full range of his vocals and ends with the crescendo we love from these guys.

Awesome the piano in this track is tremendous

An all round amazing song! Superb lyrics and the tune is unreal

19 On 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

20 The Lovers are Losing

Come on people, this is song is so underrated

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. - chewyberto

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

21 We 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...

The whole album is amazing. - ZeroBlaster

This is my favourite from their first album. Heck, it's my favourite from all their albums!

Best song ever, enough said...

22 Is It Any Wonder?

Best song, sounds a lot like U2

Far too low in the list to be realistic, is obviously top 3 and for me the best just from the memories of it and 2006

Top 3 definitely

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

23 Stop for a Minute

Why it is number 22?! So overrated song, good lyrics, good beats it's so catchy I love it.. - burakbu00f6r

Come on guys! Number 22 does not do this song justice! At least lets get this to number 11

It's the perfect song! @! Come on!

Great message, great melody, very unique!

24 The Night Sky

If only this song was more well known, it would be flying a lot higher than No.39. A charity single which was controversially refused chart entry because, I believe, the 7 inch single contained a poster. How stupid! It is not available on any of Keane’s albums. It is a beautiful song which people should do their utmost to try and listen to. Tom Chaplin has never sounded better than this.

25 Your Eyes Open

Indeed this one is probably the best one from keane

Its definitely a masterpiece. The chorus part is so much heart-felt..

Well, there's no competition here!

Surprised this isn't higher! My top favorites:
1. Somewhere only we know
2. This is the last time
3. Your eyes open
4. Sovereign light cafe
5. Bend and break
6. Everybody's changing
7. Can't stop now
8. Bedsahped

26 Try Again

Listened to this song incessantly during some dark sad days. Profoundly desperate and heartbreaking. How could you possibly not like that?

So soothing.. definitely best song of keane

Emotional song, one of the best songs
Of keane

27 Black Burning Heart

I listen to this song over and over and over.

Love the song, so deep and sad

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.

28 She 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 best song by Keane. Should be number one along with Love Is The End

This song makes me feel something...its amazing and hauntingly beautiful. My favorite Keane song! Heard it first on One Tree Hill, and it gave me chills when I heard it the next time

My sleep song, love it!

29 On the Road

Best song of Keane (others are also very good)

This entire CD is amazing! this song makes me feel happy! :D The rhythm and instruments as well as the vocals are wonderful. The intro is sooo catchy!

30 Strangeland

Just like Under the Iron Sea Great song from Strangeland

This should be in second without any doubt :/

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!

31 Fly to Me

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

32 Again & 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...

33 Neon River

This song! the rhythm... the lyrics! it's a mixture of feelings and I love to sing to it.

34 Broken Toy

Amazing!

It makes me very sad to find this song so far down... massively underappreciated, one of the best songs by anyone in my list... every bit of this sings is powerful, and it has some of the best Key Changes in Pop music.

35 Higher 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...!

36 The 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!

'Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time'. That chorus always plays in my mind when doing some hard physical endurance exercise like a century ride. This entire album is delightfully retrospective and has wisdom beyond its years. This song especially. It's just an awesome song to sing along to. Wish they had it as a standard in karaoke bars.

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

37 Better Than This
38 You 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!

Inspiring song. Makes me wish he were singing it to me in my impetuous youth.

39 My 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. - minimac93

This song should be at 1st place in my opinion.

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

This is an incredibly underrated song. Definitely the best one off Night Train, and at least in the top twenty.

41 Clear 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!

42 Your Love

Oh, it's great, 45 isn't enough.

Should be higher up

43 Myth

Man.. This is such a peaceful song.. Right now it's the 12th time on repeat.. And I just want to sleep keeping it playing by my side..

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

44 Love 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.

The rating of this song is a joke. At least a top ten ten is what I will call justice. Great song, so refreshing

38th? Are you kidding? :) this song is way better

Love is really the end of everything.

45 Untitled 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.

Untitled 1 is a complete masterpiece.
