Top 10 Best Keane Songs

The Top Ten
1 Somewhere Only We Know

This is the greatest song by Keane, and the first one I ever heard. Something about the chorus really catches your attention because it sounds ethereal and magical, and makes the listener really want to continue. I first saw this song in a BBC ad, and I was struck by how wonderful it sounded. This song is definitely the top Keane song.

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.

Everything about this song is beautiful! I love the tone of the song. Everything! There's something about this song that is enchanting! It's really addicting and catchy. This is the type of song that you can listen to in a very calm and windy day. I love it so much! With this song, you can really feel nature.

The debt and power in this song is moving. You can't help but relate to it. I forgot completely about this song years ago... a person special to me mentioned it and I haven't stopped thanking them! The beauty in its meaning just takes my breath away every time I hear it. Magical. Simply magical.

2 Everybody's Changing

Keane wrote this song when they were trying to discover where they were in the world, they had stopped still. All of their friends around them had moved on with life and they were stuck. The song's meaning is to convey this, where everybody's changing and nothing feels right. It also has a part in it about "fading into beautiful light." I relate this to a lover I once had, and once she had gone she began to dissolve very fast. Amazing song.

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.

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...

It used to be a pretty good song when it came out with nice piano, nice voice of Tom Chaplin and a bit cheesy lyrics. Now, after all these years it became extremely emotional Life has changed me and all the people I used to know. Growing older is a fact and the nostalgy for time that has passed is real.

3 This is the Last Time

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.

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

Beautiful song, beautiful lyrics, beautiful melody. Definitely the best!

Never get bored to listen to this song!

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

5 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

A top 5 SONG if not first. Number 22? That's a joke!

A top 5 song for sure!

6 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.

My favourite song! Best song, best music, best video, best vocals, best lyrics... Simply the best! I am a great fan of Keane and love all their songs equally except for this one --> It's number 1 for me! ANd I'm sure it's the case with many Keaners too...

This song means a lot to me and is poignant of my childhood. It is also masterfully sung. The lyrics are beautiful and evocative.

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

7 Stop for a Minute

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

Its an awesome song. Its special. It contains everything. It is also very touching.
One of the best songs of kean

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

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

8 Can't Stop Now

The lyrics are just magic and poetic..."I noticed tonight that the world has been turning
While I've been stuck here, withering away." The piano in this song is so overpowering, I love it!

9 Bedshaped

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.

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.

Somewhere Only We Know is the most popular Keane song and it deserves being 1th. But this song has magic in it. It is the greatest Keane song by far!

Without doubt their final song at concert I attended. Didn't do well chart-wise, but struck a chord. Amazing. Turn up the volume for the chorus.

10 Nothing in My Way

This is very well placed in the ranks and it shows a brilliant tune along with other great aspects. The group show obvious talent and the lyrics mean greatness.

The song is about having a depression. For some, every day seems just the same. They are lonely, but they try to make the best of it. Gets me every time.

This deserves a lot more than 4% of the vote.My all time favourite song. I love Keane so much but this one stands out with Tom's strong voice and such a powerful tune right from the start. I'll never get bored of this

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!

The Contenders
11 Disconnected

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.

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

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

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

12 Spiralling

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!

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.

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

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.

One of my favorite songs from the piano melody especially. Tim did such a great job, and of course Tom's vocals perfectly match the tune.

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!

This is must be in 2nd place! Laugh out loud who's vote the carp in 10-20
Come on vote up... Please.. This is nice songs. Just give it a hear. Awesome lyrics and play

14 Is It Any Wonder?

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.

This song really drives it home. There aren't a lot of bands that can create multiple hooks within a single song. Rock solid both lyrically and musically.

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.

Great! This intro is AMAZING guys good job with the backing track its superb Natasha Finnegan age:12 wish I could see you guys live

15 Silenced by the Night

Hey man I am a huge fan of Keane and have all their albums in the closet but nothing comes close to this one, although it is only a part of many more masterclasses. Maybe it was part of 'Strangeland' and that's why does not get much recognition

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.

SO relatable and gets me. The lyrics tell a vivid story I can feel. Each line is incredibly well thought out.

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

16 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!

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

My second favourite after 'Somewhere Only We Know'. Deserves so much more attention.

My SONG! Honestly one of my favorite songs ever.

17 Perfect Symmetry

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.

This song is epic and beautiful with a U2esque vibe and an ending that gives me shivers every time. The honesty and universal truth in this song sets it apart from other amazing Keane songs.

At least top 3. Wonderful melody and the vocals are higher than normal. It's easier to feel the song and sing from the heart.

This song is personally the best keane song well of course their all amazing but this is just out of the park!

18 Try Again

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

Sad and touching yet uplifting as well.

19 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.

20 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!

This song is great. It can easily cure a heartbreak with it's amazing lyrics.

Music like this bring you closer to God, literally.

21 On a Day Like Today

It might be a little repetitive but the song has a melancholic tone partnered with varying vocal, triggering emotions within the listener.

This is the best song in the world FULL STOP! Only Linkin Park's crawling and muse's uprising come close

22 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 most powerful tracks Keane has ever written.

One of the keane's best.
At least should be in top 20s.

Simple, yet deep and meaningful.

23 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.

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

24 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

The video is great too. It's starkly beautiful and reminds me of Iceland and Northern Europe.

Be honest, Atlantic is definitely 1 of TOP10 in my view!

25 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!

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

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