9.23.12 - New Music - One Direction
One Direction’s new single couldn’t sound more like “What Makes You Beautiful” if it was a “What Makes You Beautiful” karaoke playover.
One Direction – “Live While We’re Young”

The song and video weren’t supposed to be released for another few days (or maybe a week), but somehow it was leaked, and the boys were smart enough to push everything up to NOW. The song was officially released on the 20th along with the video (which in two and a half days has amassed an impressive 13.5 million views at the time of my writing this). Sucks for them, but it seems like everything was in place.
The song is fine, but I am really disappointed. The song is exactly like what the entire world knows them for. I mean, I’m having a hard time finding any differences, other than the “Starships”-sampling guitar in the breakdown. Yes, I know they are a boyband, so I shouldn’t expect too much, but isn’t a tiny bit of variety ok?
No worries One Directioners – the song will do tremendously well in the UK, and I am sure that radio will pick it up and play it in the US as well.
OD are safe…for now.
Best part – they are shirtless and wrestling in the pool. I’m betting that was their idea.
“Live While We’re Young” is probably going to be released in the US a bit later, so as to give everyone some time to properly promote everything.
