Video memories #9: Everybody's Changing
Hi folks. We're pleased to continue our series of the band's memories of Keane's official videos. Next up is Tim, with his thoughts on Everybody's Changing.
This is another simple-but-brilliant idea. The extreme whiteness of the background is very distinctive I think. I have three comments on this video:
The first is a pretty extreme bit of trivia. The rack of gear next to my piano came from a gear hire company in London, and the employee who assembled it was….none other than future Keane bassist and pin-up Mr Jesse Quin! I know this because, like an endearingly forgetful grandad, he tells me as much every time we see the video or are asked to sign the centre-spread of the Hopes and Fears inlay booklet.
The second is hard to verify, but I'm about 86% certain that the man who plays the doctor handed me a CD of demos by his son Jeremy, who I realised years later was in fact indie darling, singer-songwriter and Summer Camp guitarist Jeremy Warmsley.
The third is very puerile..but I always chuckle at about 3:12 into the video, where it has been edited in such a way that it looks like Richard has been checking out the female body-builder's wiggling backside. In fact I have to say that the brilliant randomness of the aforementioned wiggling backside has to make it one of my favourite moments in any Keane video anyway.
@JHanna02, glad you´re still around, old pal, and yes, I do miss these times terribly, and it makes me cry whenever I pass the venue in Vienna where I saw Keane, seems like ages ago.
Gudrun, you still make me laugh. Don't you miss 2007 and 2008 on the old website. We used to have a lot of fun.
Hello friends I agree with the comments of fans .What you can they ??? why let go I do not recognize you, At the announcement of your 'PAUSE' YOUR FANS we have continued to send comments expressing our sadness but mostly OUR LOVE !!! hoping that your absence would be short lived ..... Why not aroused our curiosity in us speaking text that you prepare well or we talking music 'YOUR MUSIC' course !! would this be the end of this MAGNIFICENT KEANE group that fans have brought to the success .... I refuse to believe !!!!! RESUME YOU GUYS; Give us your news, good news, we love you too much to forget you and we !!!! and we still have so many good moments to share together !!!! LOT OF LOVE TO ALL AND BIG KISSES
...that should have been a split up ;-)
Exactly, jado72, that is what we all wonder about: Why are there no updates on the band members current projects, why is nobody taking care of the site, why can trolls invade the forum? I also can see why some of us are afraid this "hiatus" is actually a slit up.
Sorry i mean: "update".
Hi Gudrun. I agree with you. Hi Gudrun. I agree with you. I am also concerned that there will be no one on this site to leave a comment. But i also don't understand why the boys of Keane don't give an udate with what they are doing seperately. I saw a picture of Tom singing before an orcestra. But what or where was that? I cheked this site but there was nothing. :(
No use coming here. No update for almost 2 months. This is how you loose a fanbase.
OMG I FORGOT YOUR BIRTH RICHI ...ANYWAY MY BEST WISHES EVER. AND PLEASE TOM CHAPLIN TAKE CARE WITH YOUR VOICE IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR US YOUR FOLLOWERS :'( :D TIM GREEITNGS!! WE LOVE YOU :))

I FELT PROUD TALKING ABOUT KEANE IN MY ENGLIS CLASSES LAST SATURD. MY TOPIC WAS ABOUT KEANE HAHAHA WAS FUNNY. YEA! :D PLEASE COME BACK WE NEED YOU :))
I miss you guys!!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ..... COME BACK TO ME, Tim !! COME BACK !! WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN SEA FOG STUDIOS?? WHAT ARE YOU COMPOSING? I NEED YOU RETORN ....
"Fool on the Hill" Beatles. La película hay que verla. Y el autobús y las cosas què les passa. La situación era colocar a un grupo de gente un bus británico en un tour por el país, enfocado mayormente en el señor Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) y su tía recientemente viuda Jessie Starkey (Jessie Robins). Otros miembros del grupo en el bus incluyen el director del tour Jolly Jimmy Johnson (Derek Royle), la anfitriona Wendy Winters (Mandy Weet), Buster Bloodvessel (Ivor Cutler), y los otros Beatles. Durante el curso del viaje, "extrañas cosas comienzan a suceder" al capricho de "cuatro o cinco magos", de los cuales cuatro son representados por los propios Beatles y el quinto por su road manager Mal Evans. Durante el recorrido, Starkey y su tía discuten considerablemente. Mientras tanto, ella se enamora de Buster Bloodvessel, quien manifiesta un comportamiento excéntrico y perturbador.
Me recuerda las fotos de Prix Pictet. Consumption.
Lanzo la proposición a los Fans de Keane de hablar sobre música. La página Oficial de Keane está recordando Memories de Vídeos y canciones. Os apuntáis ? Alguien sabe cuántos acordes se pueden llegar a crear con el teclado del piano ? Cuántos inversiones se pueden llegar a hacer ? Se crea una melodía combinando con la mayor rapidez posible, acordes díadas, triádas, cuatríadas, etc... pasando de un acorde a otro y colocando los dedos en la posición requerida. Agilidad mental, destreza en los dedos, coordinación mente y manos y pies ... Venga animaros !!!
Es difícil hablar de Keane i no mencionar la pareja perfecta sonicament formada por Tom + Tim. Una primera voz muy bien complementada por la segunda de Tim. Uno sin el otro sería como una silla medio coja. Marisa love Tim.
I'LL BE SAYING THIS WORDS.....AGAIN AND AGAIN... :)) I LOVE YOU KEANE, I WISS YOU, PLEASE COME BACK AT THE SCENARY, TOM CHAPLIN DON'T BE LAZY... MAKE YOUR ALBUM HUUM!!!! TIM ALSO YOU :P
Great song. Well, it's Keane.
Hi Guys; In spanish,,,No se imaginan como se les extraña, la tristeza que me produce ir a eventos VFestival, Y NO VERLOS! en ninguna grilla de espectáculos, nunca pensé sentir esta sensación, por una Banda. Pero la realidad que los vi en cada país que e viajado por trabajo. Siempre busque la forma de coincidir. Se que cada uno tiene una familia y un nuevo camino por seguir. Pero no olviden que en cada país te este bello mundo donde estuvieron hay un grupo grande de personas que los esperamos con los brazos abiertos para escucharlos nuevamente. I miss U! for ever Keane....
@helena1502. I'm sure that all Keane-fans feel a lot of sympathy towards Tim. But there is freedom of expression. And we don't talk bad about him. Of course not.
Girls, PLEASE! Stop with all these comments about Tim. Feeling sorry for him because of that police situation??? He’s a human being! How many times we already drunk 2 or 3 glasses of wine or 2 or 3 beers and were totally lucid? Sufficient amount of alcohol to get over the legal limits!!! Tim just had bad luck. Was caught by the police. And I totally believe that he’s not a irresponsible person to risk his life if he really was drunk and unable to drive. I also believe that he’s friends also wouldn’t allowed him to drive if he was unable to drive. So, I’m not shocked at all. He just had bad luck! Today afternoon, after work, I was also stopped by the police. What’s the big deal with that???? PLEASE STOP WITH THESE COMMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's very difficult to us, the fans, seeing our idols as human beings with their own problems and limitations. I hope he will soon overcome this crisis and turn it all into great songs.
Dear Tim, please keep your head up. There will be light after the darkness. Greetings and love to all from The Netherlands.
Hi Tim. I wish you the best there is. I am very sorry for you. Maybe it is a sign to go ahead with Keane again.
I OXFORDD & rosyangel. I think if you look at the Forums you will see what Indiegirl is talking about.
I am sorry, Indiegirl if I don't explain. I write in English my language thinking. When you say: ".... to read of your recent troubles" : What kind of troubles ? When you say: "... become one of Those People": A people who mean you ? Don't worry. You and me can not talk. And it's difficult for me to understand you.
indiegirl1980, your comment have scared me, please could you explain it better?
To indiegirl: Where is there this information you are explainning ? I don't understand you are saying. Thank you.
Tim- although I was shocked and disappointed to read of your recent troubles, I feel you should know this. You are a beautiful, talented person and you have achieved so much in your life. Please don't throw it all away and become one of Those People. I wish you well and I hope that you can move on from it.
This song brings back good memories, it was the first Keane song I heard and fell in love, not only for music but also for the band. Beijos, Regina.
YAAY! I'm getting so happy to see these Videos Memories. Well, I'm not getting extremely happy, but I am glad! This is really a special song. The first song that finally came to the radios around the UK, I think and it is an important song for the band. But I think it's boring that I'm reading nothing from Tom, any way it is really good. This is a great song for me too!! This brings back old feelings and I'm thinking: Which is the best album you've ever made. When listening to Everybody's Changing, I must confess that Hopes And Fears is an incredible album, with so many pleasures and stories about the band members. Thanks Tim, thank you so much. A lots of love from Sweden, and a bigger hug... from here!!
When I signed up to this website I thought I was signing up to Keane's official page. If I was ever interested in "checking out" their videos (which I'm not) I'll go to their pages, which I'm sure they have one themselves. I suggest that in the meantime you stop filling up the HomePage with unnecessary crap :*
Great song. Well, it's Keane.
Hi Tim!! :-) Oh please please more comments from you guys, we miss you so much and they are so hilarious... Although I do love all the Sanna Annukka artwork, the H&F logo with the piano hammers still is my favourite from all CDs artwork until now. I'll remember to give a H&F booklet opened at the central photo for Jesse to sign next time, now I have a reason to do it :-DDD All the best from The Frog Prince Squad.
HALLO! SIR TIM THANK U SO MUCH FOR THIS I LIKE SO MUCH EVERYBODY'S CHANGING SONG MY FAV. TOO... :)))))

"So little time, try to understand that I'm, trying to make a move just to stay in the game, I try to stay awake and remember my name, but Everybody's Changing and I don't feel the same"..... Una canción preciosa del álbum "Hopes and Fears". Y un Tim entregado al piano siguiendo la melodia con el pie izquierdo.
A big THANK YOU to you Dear friends * for this beautiful video, that is and will remain my favorite ** if for you it's fantastics memories for me too. I will seem can be stupid; but when I have the happiness to know this wonderful song she helped me to endure a very difficult time in my personal life. For me it was like if you give me your hand to avoid drowning ** Since when I LISTEN my heart sinks; and you can not imagine how much my love for you is strong ***** hoping to see you soon on stage my way to say I LOVE you and thank you for all Big Kisses to all
Such happy memories!
Haha, I was dying from seeing Richard's reaction to the wiggle. It completely deserved a mention.
Aw, I love this video, definitely prefer it to the other version for EC- thank you Tim for your thoughts on it :). And I laughed out loud at point 3 because I still remember the first time I saw the whole video many years ago, when the part with Richard checking the body-builder out made me laugh back then, too. For years I thought I was just being so childish (I thought- surely, they wouldn't put something like that in on purpose :D)- it's great to hear you noticed it as well and now I can rest assured I wasn't just imagining things :D. Also love the Jesse trivia, so funny he had an input in the song years before joining you full-time- it was obviously meant to be :). Thanks again for the memories Tim and hoping we'll get to read more from you and the others :).
Thanks Tim, We really appreciate you taking the time to post this, keeps us going through the break.
Hi Tim... Thank you for sharing the trivia and memories and most of all, ur wonderful music!! Really love the Jesse thing, ha!! We miss you, Tim.. please write more :) love & kisses from Indonesia
Surely our boys have evolved a lot, in these 10 years, but EC and SOWK will be, forever, the brand of them. Thanks Tim!
Mm... Are you sure it was an edition thing? Ha ha! Besos.
It's funny you'd mentioned that detail about Rich! *LOL* That look always makes me laugh! We love you and miss you so much Tim! Lot of kisses from Mexico!
This song is wonderful, one of the best songs of Keane. Thanks Tim! Thanks guys!! ♥ Peru loves you :-)
Best video memory yet!
I'm happy to read you again! We miss you all :) a big hig from Buenos Aires xx
Feels really good to see some Great "Keane moves" on our beloved website...Tk You, Tim!!! And this memory of yours is particularly sweet !!! :)) So Jesse has been "present" since the very beginning, that's really lovely - it was just meant to be! And I must say I hadn't noticed that fab. 'detail' abt Richard, you're totally right! Hilarious :))) EC was *the song* that has taken me to Keane...it will always be most special for me.. Tks so much again, lots of love and loads of *saudades* from Portugal *****
Thank you Tim, Loved your comment about Richard at 3:12 in the video. You have a point there! ;) Miss you guys so much. Lots of love, Annette H xxxx
In lieu of actual Keane news, Keane trivia is hugely welcome. I never noticed that about Richard (not, of course) checking out the body-builder's behind.
Yaaayy, another Video Memory, and one of the greats too. With out doubt one of the greatest songs ever written. So special.
