Description

"<em>Somewhere Only We Know</em>" is a song composed by English alternative rock band, <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Keane" class="bbcode_artist">Keane</a>. It is the opening track on their debut studio album, <em>"<a title="Keane - Hopes and Fears" href="http://www.last.fm/music/Keane/Hopes+and+Fears" class="bbcode_album">Hopes and Fears</a>" (2004)</em>. It has been covered by several artists, including in 2013 by <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Lily+Allen" class="bbcode_artist">Lily Allen</a>: her cover version was used as the soundtrack to the Christmas advertising campaign for the UK department store, John Lewis, and reached number 1 in the UK charts.

Contrary to popular belief, <em>"<a title="Keane – Somewhere Only We Know" href="http://www.last.fm/music/Keane/_/Somewhere+Only+We+Know" class="bbcode_track">Somewhere Only We Know</a>"</em> is most likely not about lovers. <a href="http://www.last.fm/music/Tim+Rice-Oxley" class="bbcode_artist">Tim Rice-Oxley</a> has said that <em>'somewhere only we know'</em> can be a great variety of things, and when writing the song, left it to be ambiguous, though he has thought of it as a sort of escape, such as a good memory or a favorite place.

Rice-Oxley told the UK newspaper,<em>The Daily Mirror</em>, "It's about being able to draw strength from a place or experience you've shared with someone. I think its an idea a lot of people can relate to."

<em>"<a title="Keane – Somewhere Only We Know" href="http://www.last.fm/music/Keane/_/Somewhere+Only+We+Know" class="bbcode_track">Somewhere Only We Know</a>"</em> was used on the original soundtrack (OST) to the 2009 motion picture, <em>'He's Just Not That Into You'.</em>
