Best Songs from The Kooks

The Top Ten
1 Naive Naive Cover Art

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.

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.

A very nuanced piece of work. Sounds better with each replay.

2 She Moves in Her Own Way She Moves in Her Own Way Cover Art

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.

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

3 Always Where I Need to Be Always Where I Need to Be Cover Art

This is such a great song! First song I ever heard by them. Don't get me wrong, naive is amazing but this is just beautiful, the lyrics and his powerful voice make a beautiful song!

Such a great song which had really grown on me. every time I listen to the song I find something new about it which makes me love it even more

Best song on Konk

4 Gap Gap Cover Art

The instruments are so well played, and even within the quieter moments of the song they are so powerful, especially when mixed with the strong vocals, and the depths of the lyrics just make the song what it is.

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.

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

This song is amazing. not even too sure why, but the vibe this song gives is brilliant and it definitely deserves to be in the top ten at least

5 Seaside Seaside Cover Art

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.

Even though this is a short song, the pitch, the tone, everything is just perfect.
Honestly in love with this song, makes me so happy!

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

6 Ooh La Ooh La Cover Art

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.

7 Junk of the Heart (Happy) Junk of the Heart (Happy) Cover Art

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 is one of those few songs that makes you feel something. the part in the chorus, you know what I'm talking about, makes me feel

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

8 See the Sun See the Sun Cover Art

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

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

Ah yes... This song is legendary

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

Amazing song! More people should give it a chance!
The more you listen to it the better it gets!

Surprised it's so low on the list. It has a great beat to dance and sing to in my opinion.

This song has a nasty intro! I love it!

What an amazing chorus riff! This somg grows on you, it must go higher on the list

15 Mr. Maker Mr. Maker Cover Art

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!

I love this song! The guitar and drums are absolutely phenomenal, and the guitar solo towards the end are too good.

17 Matchbox Matchbox Cover Art

Surprised that this song is not in the top 20?! Such an underrated song and it was a pleasure to hear this song live not just once but twice!

Matchbox is one of favourite Kooks songs of all time, perfect transitions and a great chorus

This is the first song I heard of them and that's the only reason I continued to listen to The Kooks. This song would be number one on my charts! Followed by Naive

It's good. It also reminds me the memories I had with my girlfriend when I'm taking candid pictures of her.

I love this song! This song is so breathtaking! Just can't get over it.

19 Around Town Around Town Cover Art

Definitely the best song of them, very powerful. It should be higher

20 How'd You Like That How'd You Like That Cover Art
21 Is It Me Is It Me Cover Art
22 Jackie Big T**s Jackie Big T**s Cover Art

Short but sweet, catchy number - highly underrated!

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

23 Rosie Rosie Cover Art
24 Killing Me

I totally agree. This for me is The Kooks best song. The lyrics are beautiful and it has an air of melancholy that is just sad and joyous at the same time, stunning.

This would be a close second to "Naïve" for me. It has such beautiful lyrics with amazing verses leading to the heartbreaking bridge where Luke Pritchard's voice breaks at "will the wind blow her away? "

Their best song hands down, When I think of the kooks I think of this song.

Their best song by far

25 Do You Love Me Still?

That beginning captures the mood of reminiscing on old love perfectly
