One Direction

In this group we have discussed about many great artists. Today I would like to raise a topic about One Direction. They are a new, young band (from 2010).Let’s hear their songs first.The first song I want to add is “What makes you beautiful”. I think this song is their most famous song.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QJO3ROT-A4EI guess most of you heard this song before.Another very famous song is “One thing”: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1xs_xPb46MA very funny song “Kiss You”: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=T4cdfRohhcgWould you like to head more? “One way or another”: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=36mCEZzzQ3oThey are so young and full of energy (or “full of life”). They do whatever they want.Live when we were young: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AbPED9bisScAnd the last song I want to post here is “Best song ever”: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=o_v9MY_FMcwSo always be who you are and do what you want. Wish you always energetic, enjoy every moment in your life likes we are so young! :)I don’t want to post the lyrics here because I add a lot of songs. I hope you will hear them and try to understand what they sung.I have a challenge (I want to write “small challenge” but I think it may not right): Please listen the last song and write down the conversation here. I don’t know exactly what they said but I think many other members will be pleased to help us.Here is some information about One Director in wiki:" One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an English-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records after forming and finishing third in the seventh series of the British televised singing competition The X Factor in 2010. Propelled to international success by social media, One Direction's four albums, Up All Night (2011), Take Me Home (2012), Midnight Memories (2013) and Four (2014) topped charts in most major markets, and generated hit singles including "What Makes You Beautiful", "Live While We're Young", and "Story of My Life". Their fifth studio album, Made in the A.M., was released in November 2015." If you want to know more about them, please follow this link: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Direction Nice day!(P/S: although they are a very famous band, many of my colleagues doesn't know them. But they heard their song before).

  • Happy that you liked it. :) I think the correct sentence is "If I had heard Sophie's version first...". :)

    Uhm, Sophie sang this song successfully. I think if I heard Sophie's version first I would say "who is this One Direction" too. Thank you for your suggestion! Do you think that my "if" sentence is right? I'm not sure.

  • Ann, yes, of course. I searched in the past and i found it with much difficulty. This is the "One way or another" from Sophie Ellis Bextor:

    The thing is that i remember it a little different but it must be this. I remember to dance it many times in the club, when i was studying in university :D :D

    Hi Elen, can you please suggest me the "One way or another" version which you like? I like to hear. :)
    I'm sorry that I can't reply sooner. I can't finish all my task. Hope to be here more often!

    Hey Ann. Two three years ago i was searching for a specific version of "One way or another" and this band appeared many times in my searching and i was almost angry. I said "Oh, my God, who is this One direction? This version is so bad!" Anyway first time i saw the video clip now and i enjoyed it, but only the video, not their version :) As for the other songs, ok, they are good but not my style. I think teenagers and people in their age love them much. I agree with you, they have so much energy and i wish them good luck in their career.

  • You are totally right as usual Noaspls. I am going to add another song. I hope you will like it. ^.6

    I'm not a fan of this band. I think the youngsters love them though. Ahhh! To be young again and enjoying boy bands. LOL.

    The power of media and social networks made this boy band multi-millionaire with mediocre talent and voice. But I believe a good singer will always to the top and remain an evergreen as compared to the popularity of a boy band.

  • Thank you for helping me adding all the videos!
  • I have just looked for "fuddy-duddy" in dictionary. It is "old-fashioned". I like old songs too. I wonder which singer is good now. Then I decided to add a topic about "One Direction".
  • I like to see they perform in the stage more than their clips. They are naughty boys
