21 Dec 2012

You sent in your "What do Keane think of...?" questions by Twitter. And the band sat down to answer them at the last show of the year in Bournemouth. Here's what happened....

adorable video!!! I love tim when he talks spanish!! :D

Hey guys!! You are adorable and I love your sincerity (money! XDD). If Tim or any of you want to learn Spanish I offer myself as a teacher. First lesson: Merry Christmas is ¡Feliz Navidad! So, ¡FELIZ NAVIDAD!

"The way you want it to" ?!!!! Dear Jesse if you go on I will fall in love with you !..... ;)))))

A setlist made by fans ? But it's my dream !!!! I tried few months ago for Olympia but nothing...you are witness Mr KM !!!! Not even Atlantic, naughty Keane ! Fans could vote for songs they want to listen at shows ! It's a brillant idea. A B-Side style show ??????? A Yes resolute from the FLBS/BSLF (Front de libération des B-Sides/ B-SIDES LIBERATION FRONT) from Paris founded the 15th may 2009 (see the archives ;) ) by 1 woman & 2 cats....

OK°°°°!!!! esta increible el video. Yo les deseo lo mejor de Navidad, mientras puedo decir lo siguiente: Debajo de este manto, corrumpido de estrellas y constelaciones que congregan y contemplan mi canto y resplandecen el cielo azul, solo puedo decir: Gracias por los miles de corazones. Se agitan, se liberan, se levantan y respiran dulce aire envuelto, el sol del cielo ha nacido, ¡Corazón mio canta, canta!! el silencio de ésta noche, se ha ido... Espero les guste, Feliz Navidad.

Merry Christmas to You Keane!!!!.

Great video :)))))) Merry Christmas, guys! Hope to see you back in Budapest 'very soon', as promised!

La creatividad, la imaginación, la pasión y la menor experiencia está en los 20-27 años. A partir de los 28 años vamos todos en general disminuyendo nuestra creatividad pero aumentamos la experiencia. Excepto los genios, que siguen siendo creativos. Tocar el piano puedes hacerlo a cualquier edad. Componer, crear, hasta cuando ? Qué piensas of ?

Posted by OXFORDD at 10:24pm, 23 Dec 2012

Hello guys! I loved it and also your Santa´s cap with the lights on :) You looked very cute! I can´t wait for you to come to my country and see you play and sing your songs with you. Merry Christmas and enjoy this day with all the ones you love. xoxo Cecilia- Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Great "what do you think of" video :-) ! The idea of a b-side gig can be great :-) ! Merry Christmas to you guys

Posted by bluenightsky at 9:19pm, 23 Dec 2012

What a nice video. :) You guys should do these kind of things much more often. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone!!!!!!!!!!

Hey!! Hi!! Thank you for taking time to prepare this nice present for us :) You're too nice as always :) and we are so lucky to be your fans. Thanks to all KM staff as well, they have been fantastic in the past months, with all the updates. #Tim, congrats on your Spanish, you seem to have a flair for latin languages :D (I might ask you for some Italian in the future...just joking). Anyway... I just love the sound of your voice, I had to say that. It's like being home, I can't actually explain that. Ok it doesn't really matter, I'm quite emotional in this period and I'm just raving. I'm going through some troubled time and it's funny how Tim's voice, or Tom, Richard and Jesse's laugh can cheer me up. Thanks. A #b-side concert would just be a dream come true !!!! A lot of extra-work for Jesse I guess. Just in case... don't forget to play Myth!!! I admitt those are not the best questions I've ever heard, but I loved the video, your funny answers, and the idea of wishing us Happy Christmas in such a lovely way. Christmas is just another day, at least for me, but every day is a good occasion to celebrate and share the love for music and friendship ..so, today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow (and so on...) I wish you will find the right and wise answers to give to the questions of your life, or at least a trustworthy friend to discuss the question and have a good laugh with. Vi amo. I love you :) Simona from ..Florence, Italy

Posted by sim163 at 12:45am, 23 Dec 2012

Great video! ----------------THANK YOU for sharingyour time with me ;-) I am from germany and was at your show in HAMBURG. I Miss you soooo much!! Please come back to GERMANY very soon. I listen to HOPES AND FEARS since 2004!

Posted by Erika haller at 11:45pm, 22 Dec 2012

No sé porqué escucho canciones con piano pero con ritmo. Está claro que hay que poner ganas, sentir lo que cantas como si fuera tuyo, tocar el instrumento con el máximo de pasion. Al final la pasion en una canción és lo que la hace sublime. En la revista Q, Tim Rice decía que ya no estaba a tiempo de encontrar una gran composicion. Yo creo que lo importante como deseo del 2013 es componer sintiendo las notas haciendotelas tuyas. Y el contenido de la letra ha de conciso pero directo, que la gente se la sienta suya.

Posted by OXFORDD at 10:05pm, 22 Dec 2012

Absolutely brilliant! Really been looking forward to seeing a new 'what do you think of'. Haha loving toms guide to making a cup of tea, that's just how I make it ;) and completely agree about a b-side gig! It would be so lovely to hear the songs that rarely get performed live, even though they are so good! Allemande and walnut tree are very beautiful, as are all masterpieces from keane :) I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year xxxx

Posted by ecowitch at 8:20pm, 22 Dec 2012

I just love how down to earth you guys are. You're so relaxed, so easy going, so charming. You always make me smile. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Posted by Griet at 8:10pm, 22 Dec 2012

Gosh i just love you guys so much!! Thanks for the music and all the amazing moments of this years, i wish you all a merry merry xmas!! I LOVE KEANE THE BEST BAND EVER!!! Tom, Tim, Jesse, Richard I LOVE YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!

Posted by KeaneStar at 7:20pm, 22 Dec 2012

Tom and Richard llevan el mismo gorro iluminado. Tim sin iluminar. Y Jesse sin nada. Tim, conoces un grupo británico que se llama The Style Council. La canción "Shout to the Top". El pianista tiene nervio, y con el dedo mano derecha hace una escala de notas seguidas. Es soul, funk,..... és del año 1980 ... pero vale la pena escuchar ... el ritmo es electrizante. Tom, te atreves a cantarla ??? Marisa. Barcelona.

Posted by OXFORDD at 6:14pm, 22 Dec 2012

very funny this video. And hope you are going to do a b-side gig as well. Would be lovely. So wishing you guyas a great x-mas and a wonderful new year!

Posted by dogivy at 4:03pm, 22 Dec 2012

Nice to see that Tim was wearing the hat this time (unlike the end of the Bournemouth gig!) any reason for that Tim!!? loved loved loved the gig (had no voice for the following 2 days!) wishing Keane and families a very happy christmas and new year - thank you for the music and keep it coming. Merry christmas to all fans here and around the world - the best in the world x x x

Posted by kgrist at 1:12pm, 22 Dec 2012

Aww that was cute :D Merry Christmas to Keane too :3

Posted by FreddyCrab at 12:35pm, 22 Dec 2012

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! My favourite bits were Tom's dopey : 'What do I think of What?' (oh, wake up) and also when making tea, it's bag, milk, water, let it steep, take bag out. It's never been water in first, what kind of business is this?! It's been another great year and a lovely Xmas to you and yours.

Posted by indiegirl1980 at 12:09pm, 22 Dec 2012

Thank you guys! This year I attended 5 gigs and all were wonderful, as usual! B-sides gig...yes please!! It would be awesome, just like a b-sides CD...please? Merry Christmas and Happy 2013 for all from The Netherlands!

Posted by Marigold at 11:29am, 22 Dec 2012

Love to see you laughing... Merry, merry christmas to all of you, may the new year bring as much joy and fun as it can!

Posted by SylliBee at 10:56am, 22 Dec 2012

Hi, boys! MONEY! I had a laugh! Money makes us inspired, aint it? :D Yes, I'm for B-SIDES gig!!!! Please, please, please?! What do you think of before you go right on stage? Jesse: "the first note." That's so sweet, Jess! It sure does breaks the ice and gets the ball rollin'! May the four of you have the merriest of all Christmases with your families and loved ones! *hugs & kisses from Belgium*

Feliz Navidad i os deseo lo mejor para 2013. Una pregunta para Keane: Qué piensan de la música actual ? Qué estilo mueve el mundo musical ? Para Tim: Qué piensa de una buena composicion ? Marisa. Barcelona. Petons.

Posted by OXFORDD at 10:56pm, 21 Dec 2012

Nice video. I’m all in for the b-sides gig. But why not make it a b-sides/rarely played live songs gig? :) Then they could add marvelous songs like On a day like today. Happy holidays and all the best for 2013!
