One Direction: 'What Makes You Beautiful' - Single review

By
One Direction: 'What Makes You Beautiful'
Released on Sunday, Sep 11 2011

"The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed," One Direction confess on their debut single. Given their age and their not-so-squeaky clean reputation with the ladies, we're not surprised that something as trivial as lock-tossing could get this lot going - though judging by the rest of the song, it turns they're in fact surprisingly picky when it comes to finding a long-term mate.

Their favourite sort? That endangered breed who are visually stunning but aren't aware of it. "Don't need make-up to cover up/ Being the way that you are is enough," they insist over a toe-tappable melody dangerously similar to Grease classic 'Summer Nights', before launching into a breezy guitar-pop chorus that would probably occupy the intersecting space of a Venn diagram between McFly's 'All About You' and Pink's 'Raise Your Glass'. Like a Forever Friends bear from your high school crush, it's adorable, completely innocent and bound to cause a stir amongst your mates.
