Top Ten Best Keane Songs


The Top Ten

1 Somewhere Only We Know 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 just love it...It takes me somewhere magic far far away...

2 Everybody's Changing 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...

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...

This is the first Keane song I have ever heard. It is also, for me, a masterpiece of it's era. During that time, songs started to use autotune, electro music, etc. Most songs seemed to be similar as well. But then, Keane recorded Everybody's Changing in 2003, a marvel of it's age, introducing piano rock, which became Keane's identity. It has a strong message, it just gives you goosebumps. "Everybody's Changing" is truly a powerful song of the early 2000's.

3 This is the Last Time This 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 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.

I feel happy when I play this songs

Never get bored to listen to this song!

4 Crystal Ball 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

5 Sovereign Light Cafe Sovereign 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!

This was the song I heard on the radio and thought "wow, who is that". I love it, it should be #1!

6 Perfect Symmetry Perfect Symmetry

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.

Avid, music-obsessive Keane fan, and this has got to be their best. The other songs are awesome, but this is a masterpiece. Each band/artist have many 10/10 worthy amazing songs, but every now and then they pop out with a masterpiece, and this song is theirs.

I like the part when Tom sings, "Or may be you'll find life is unkind... " The melody is so nice.

A masterpiece. Can't argue with that. - keanelover

7 Bedshaped 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.

Just love this song turned up really loud.. it's delicate but powerful

8 Silenced by the Night 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.

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

BEST SONG EVER! :D Strangeland is a wonderful CD. Almost couldn't pick between this one and Sovereign Light Cafe

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..

Remember it from the concert. WW1 images. V well done.

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!

11 Hamburg Song Hamburg 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 best songs. Sadly underrated but so pure with love

12 Spiralling

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.

Their most commercial song, perhaps? Holds its own, but there are better

The most catchy song I listened in a long, long time.

Whaat! Spiralling can't be anywhere below 5,this song is just too amazing

14 Bend and Break Bend 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

This song deserved to be in the top5 let alone be number1

18 The Frog Prince 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.

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

Awesome the piano in this track is tremendous

19 On a Day Like Today 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.

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
