Amazing, incredible, a breath of fresh air in a world full over over-exposed pop stars who don't even write their own music and spend more time on their appearance than their songs. Piano based with awesome vocals, it took a few times to really get into it, but I absolutely LOVE Keane now.
Keane freaking ROCKS!

A British band that is taking over the Western Hemisphere (that would be us for those who aren't so good at geography) because their music is so amazing and brilliant. Their song "Somewhere only we Know" was the #1 song for weeks on Z104 (WQRX Washington) because it is so perfect. The band members may not gorgeous, but they have wonderful British accents and are so cute and so alluring as musicians and people. And, if everyone wasn't so closed-minded about what's cool and what's not (it's about time to make your own descisions people...), Keane would have already made it big-time in America like they have in Britain!
Person 1: Turn that up! It's Keane on the radio! They are my favorite band!
Person 2: What?
Person 1: Just listen...
Person 2: Wow. It is really cool. Are they British?
Person 1: Yeah
Person 2: That's hot!

To write or broadcast in a maudlin, excessively emotional way. Word coined in honour of the BBC's Feargal Keane. Similar to keening, only more sanctimonious.
A hideous keaning sound filled the airwaves.

In this issue of the Independent, Robert Fisk keanes about damage to Hizbollah. Luckily, this is hidden behind a subscribers-only firewall in the online version.
