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

Everyone loves it!

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...

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...

For number 1! - hg64764

3 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

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 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!

Ridiculously nostalgic, love it.

6 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.

Brilliant song

7 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.

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

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.

When I need inspiration, motivation, I put Perfect Symmetry on the headphones and block out the world.

8 Nothing in My Way

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

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!

Beat
.. can't believe it is this low in ranking... deserves 1st or at least 2nd

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

I love his

10 A Bad Dream

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..

This one should be #5 at least. - ZeroBlaster

The Contenders

11 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

No

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.

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!

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

13 Bend & 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 is the best keane song

14 Leaving So Soon?

Phenomenal on every level!

Addictive song

15 Disconnected

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.

This song is so underrated, this is the best song of strangeland album

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

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

17 Atlantic

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.

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

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

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

HOW IS THIS AT NUMBER 27! This song deserves to be at least in the top 5. - chewyberto

This song is sooo emotional! I love it... it's filled with soul... :D

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...

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

Best song ever, enough said...

The whole album is amazing. - ZeroBlaster

22 Is 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.

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

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!

What K'naan and Keane are singing
It deserves no.3

24 Your Eyes Open

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

Well, there's no competition here!

Indeed this one is probably the best one from keane

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

25 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

26 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.

27 Black 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

28 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!

29 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

A truly wonderul song which beautifully sung and carries a lot of meaning that many can relate to. It gives me chills every time

30 Fly to Me

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

31 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!

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 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...!

35 Broken Toy

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.

36 Better Than This
37 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.

It's a beautiful song.

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 Your Love

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

Should be higher up

42 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!

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 Put It Behind You
45 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.

46 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.
