Songs Track By Track
Although often described as a cheesy typical boy band, it has to be said that One Direction provide songs filled with heartfelt lyrics perfect for serenading your own loved one.
The song One Thing begins with a steady beat and simple riff, although sounding less challenging, this choice of style proves to be very effective and gives the song an incredibly good vibe throughout.
One Thing's lyrics basically tell the story of a guy or girl who develops an incredibly big crush on a certain someone causing them to lose their minds and not think straight while also not being able to pinpoint exactly what it is they're attracted to, hense "I don't, I don't, don't know what it is, but you've got that one thing"
Gotta Be You (U.S. Version)
Beginning with the soft, sweet sound of a harmonizing Cello this song instantly proves to contain much more depth than the previous, following with a steady drum beat and soft vocals from all members this song is much more relaxed and calm compared to One Thing.
The song Gotta Be You is basically about falling in love someone and believing that there is no one else on the earth that could ever take their place, the lyrics
"Can we fall, one more time?
Stop the tape and rewind
Oh and if you walk away I know I'll fade
'Cause there is nobody else"
depict how after causing a mistake, the boy/girl has realised that their is no one else for them.
For Fans Of: The Wanted, JLS, Justin Bieber and Allstar Weekend.
Conclusion: This single is a great look at the future of One Direction, it is unlikely that they will be leaving our media anytime soon!
