Boy bands are like oxygen to me; I basically need them to survive. There’s just something about them that makes me fall head over heels in love and blast their songs on repeat forever. The humble boy band has been a little missing in action in recent years, overtaken by rappers, or solo artists, and this makes me sad, so when I discovered One Direction the other day, it was like all my fangirl Christmas’s had come at once.
One Direction (1D), comprised of five 17-19 year old British boys, rose to fame on last year’s British X Factor (British X Factor must be the greatest thing ever. First Jedward, now One Direction…Why can’t our version be epic like theirs?!) and have released their first single this week. Harry, Louis, Zayn, Niall, and Liam all auditioned separately for the show, but were then thrown together as a group and hit it off big-time.
Their debut single, “What Makes You Beautiful” hit number one on the UK iTunes chart within hours of being released, and the film clip has had 6.8million views in less than a month. Check it out:
I just love them so much. Now they just need to come to Australia and
fall in love with me release some more super cool music and my boy band loving heart will be satisfied.
