Somewhere only we know

Can't help it, after listening to Keane's song, I realize how underrated this band is. Their songs are just mythical and touches the heart ! So, here's my post dedicating to one of my favorite bands of all time, KEANE ! Their songs helped me through my first break-up and subsequent ups and downs of life as well.

When their first hit single "Somewhere only we know" came out, Brandon played it like 10,000million times a day. After almost 7years after I first heard the song, somehow I still find myself listening to this song over and over again. It is such a beautifully made song with a hidden story behind it !  It's just magical ! The song seems to talk about the simplicity of life against the complexity of reality, but at the same time, it felt like a sad love story bout a couple who used to love each other. Due to the challenges of life perhaps, they eventually got drifted apart, and one of them (in my mind, it's the guy) is trying to salvage the relationship by going back to the place which they first met and fell in love. I guess everyone has their own interpretation haha, so yea, put aside all the Gangnam Style and K-POP tunes for a minute or two, and check out some of their songs..and decide for yourself, whether these guys are good :)

"And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know? 
This could be the end of everything,
So why don't we go,
Somewhere only we know"
