Keane: Somewhere Only We Know

Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,” released in 2004, seems like it’s from another lifetime, because everything has changed so much since then.   It seems like the world was more innocent then and so were we.   Fourteen years is a long time, but not so long to make me feel like we’re in an entirely different eon.    This piano rock ballad, already melancholy enough, is made even more so for me for this reason.   I still love this song.

Monday Melody: Mr. Brightside (The Killers)

Another great post-1990s pop-rock tune, from 2004.   This is just a great song.   The lead singer is very easy on the eyes, too.
