Best Songs from The Kooks

The Top Ten

1 Naive

Simply to catchy.
And awesome accent.
First song I heard of them, since then I'm hooked and listened almost every song of them. Awesome band :D.

Who wouldn't love this song? I think everyone sings along Luke while hearing this! And it's not just their best song, but one of the best indie songs ever!

I could listen to this song a million times. It is just so catchy and the lyrics are meaningful unlike every modern pop song on the radio today.

The best song :-)

I just love this song! The only problem with it is it's too short! I wish it would just go to infinite replay. I could listen to this forever

the best song ever, with an amazing accent, the nunber one in my opnion. I just love the song.

The emotion in his voice is amazing, lovely chilled song..

This song is beautfiul...its just something that everyoe can feel and relate to. I know everyone thinks its about like alcohol abuse and cheating but I think its about unrequited love in general and how he's afraid to ask her.

4 She Moves in Her Own Way

The bridge in this song is one of the most powerful I have ever heard in music. "yes I wish that we never made it through all the summers/ we kept them up instead of kicking us back down to the suburbs" or whatever the hell he's actually saying, the manner in which its delivered is beautiful. The rest of the song is excellent as well, somewhere between banger and ballad.

The extreme British accent adds a certain catchyness to the tune. Intensely unique.

One of their best songs ever and reminds me of hanging out with mates in the summer (: it's so lovely

This one, Naive and Ooh La are my favorites! They're amazing!

5 Junk of the Heart (Happy)

It's one of the first songs I heard of theirs and it instantly stuck. It deserves a place in the top 5. It was on my holiday playlist and after a week of using it to drown out the sound of the dance music being constantly played by the pool, it didn't get boring.

I absolutely adore this song. Not only is it fun to sing to but it's incredibly catchy and makes you feel happy.

This song is so carefree, it really does make you feel happy and alive!

This is the happiest and the saddest song I have ever heard.

7 See the Sun

The guitar work is flawless, this song doesn't get old whatsoever.

Right when they pick up the tempo with that awesome guitar solo always makes me want to rock out

See the sun not in the top 10! It deserves top 3 without a DOUBT!

Ah yes... This song is legendary

8 Ooh La

catchy... I think is one of the better songs I've ever heard should be right behind no 1

The Kooks are masters of catchy Melody and Sunny disposition, so practically all of their songs are great when you're in a good mood.
But "Ooh La" stands alone because of it's perfect mixture of happy pop and heartfelt indie-ness.

It's good to listen "in all situations"

Perfect! Music n rhythm going along

9 Shine On
10 Eddie's Gun

First Single, fun and catchy

22! Should b on top!

The Contenders

11 Is It Me
12 Gap

This is the best song in the world, here the voice and the instruments are so amazing the lyrics had so much passion is better than naive, naive is just a simply catchy song looking pop. This song represents indie and the kooks

Always been my favorite, not sure why but I love it so much. It has a certain quality and feel to it that I love so much. The melodies and lyrics all coming together make it amazing even if not everyone thinks so.

I can't even tell why, but I love this song. I'm listening to it on replay, all the time :p Makes me wanna sing all alone in the street :p. The lyrics are crazy awesome, these guys are great, seriously :D

Love the chorus to this song. Such an emotional nerve wracking song.

I don't know how this isn't higher, one of my favorites

Such a sing along song, and is always in my head!

20 Mr. Maker

This is just the catchiest feel good song in the world

Great meaning, powerful lyrics, awesome guitar

Such a feel good "driving in the sun with the roof down and wind blowing through your hair" song. makes me grin like an idiot whenever I listen to it. extremely underrated and should be brought up to the top 3, at the least. also, the song has a bigger meaning behind it than you think.
Lurve Luke Pritchard. lurve the Kooks!
