Best One Direction Songs


The Top TenXW

1What Makes You Beautiful

I love this song! Is amazing and is in the top of the list! Is the best song of the album up all night!

I'm a guy and I hate to say that I love this song and One Thing. They are very catchy songs and its fresh from all the generic crap so that's why I probably like it. This song is a little bit better than One Thing but they are both great but vote for this song ok

I like almost of them... But this it's like a rain of positive things that you can't ignore with this voices.. And they Harry's mini solo at finish it's amazing!

Wow 1 of my favorite songs

2Best Song Ever

Best Song Ever really is the best song ever. The boys' voices sound more mature and it is very catchy. I've actually been singing it all day since I saw the music video. But its a really great song and should at least be in the top 5! I love it so much

This song should be number won because it is really catchy and it makes you watch it again and again... And it makes me like the band more... Also it makes me like harry styles more... And the future Mrs. Styles

This is the best song of one direction

Combination of music and voice is best in the best song ever

3One Thing

Every songs are wonderful and amazing, but when I heard this song I cry! I love this song and I love ONE DIRECTION! And I love Niall, Harry, Zayn, Liam, Luis! Every day I listen this song! Sunny

This is the song which I like to sing every second of every day. They did a nice job here. The best of all they sang from the start. But I think they have done a good job in Forever Young but I think originality is better. Go One Direction! Your fans are always here to support you!

Love it! Such a great up beat song! The video to go with it, really brings out the lyrics of the song the boys personalities really shine through! Amazing!

Superb song! 1 of my favorites! Louis's voice is quite dominating in the main lines

7Story of My Life

This song is just amazing! Can't stop listening to it!

THE LYRICS ARE JUST SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL! This should seriously be in the top 3! And contrary to popular belief, the lyrics aren't about a girl like most of their other songs. in fact, the song is about the past memories that made them into who they are today. watcth the video :) its brilliant

I can't believe that it is ranked this low! This song is amazing!

This should be number one. I'm not a big fan but this is a nice song

The Newcomers


This is by far the best song one direction has ever made. It would be way better with Zayn, of course, but the lyrics are mature and their voices just... Come together. Melt together. This song is beautiful.

This is by far my favorite, the lyrics are so deep and mature and it is such a new sound for them. It's so soulful and beautiful. Absolutely astonished.

The lyrics are so mature and metaphorical and it's beautiful. Love.

11Gotta Be You

This song actually made me feel each and every word said... Truly great song... If you have not heard this then you don't know what you are missing.

I love this song so much! Love ya niall! Love 1D! But this song makes me happy and sad at the the same time because happy: it's really nice that 1D made this song for her! Sad: Imagine if she rejected them!

Awesome me and harry hit the note real good!

Not a big One Direction fan but this is such a great song! I swear to God I wont get tired listening to it.

12One Way or Another

Its amazing I don't know y people are not voting fo this

Really love this song! This is the only you can laugh, cry, and smile or any expressions.. Haha. I love the Niall's part in the music video, especially when he is in the bathroom. He is funny and the boys are all amazing.. Vote this song guys!

This Song is Amazing!
But if you see on YouTube, The Songs are Copied from a very old Singer,
Blondie. Go Internet and search One way or another Blondie. It's the same!
But Anyway This Song's Rock! With some sort of ComedyIt's Just Quite Weird
How they Have done their Video But Still I LOVE the Song. One Way Or Another... I Gonna... GettaGettaGetta...

I love this song its amazing

V53 Comments

I love the boys' voices in it. It's a really cute song and it doesn't seem as autotuned as the others. I also like the lyrics. I think it's a very real song, and I love that Ed Sheeran wrote it. In my opinion it's a high quality song! I don't think a lot of people would have expected this from 1D.

All their songs are great, but there's something about this song that I just love. The lyrics are really meaningful and are about a girl that died and the boy committed suicide because he can't live without her, which makes the song even more meaningful. All in all, this is definitely my favourite song &

This is amazing song, every single time I listen to it I can't help but cry, they are really, truly amazing. This isn't my favorite song but it's up there with it. My favorite song is One Thing. I love them and all of their songs though...

I love this song unto death. Very beautiful song with meaningful lyrics, I almost on the verge of crying after listening to it. Dedicated to our Harry Styles

14Rock Me

This song is so awesome it should be #1 or something. Who wouldn't like this song. I think everyone should vote this song.. And listen 24 7 like I do.

Rock me... Rilly rocks me... Awesome song.. Awesome beats and music

THIS SONG IS AMAZING! Why is it all the way down here? I like the fact that they have taken an original and well known song and turned it into something amazing! I think this song deserves to be 1st! The lyrics are amazing and Louis is given enough solos whereas in other songs I think he maybe doesn't get his fair share.

This is an amazing song should definitely be at the top of the list!

15Forever Young

An awesome cover they out their own spin on the song without ruining it! It's just plain awesome!

I love how they sing this! I'm so sad that you can't buy it on iTunes because it's a cover. But I have it recorded so it's still good. They sound amazing and sometimes it brings me to tears cause it just totally fits them!

Way better than the original song. This song should be at number one on this list! This song is definitely my favorite and in my opinion the best song they've ever sung

This song and "Summer Love" are honestly 2 of One Direction's masterpieces. Fits them almost too perfectly, and it's beyond beautiful. - Anggun

18Last First Kiss

Come on, this song is like the best one of the new album!

This is a really good song! It has meaningful lyrics and everyone in the band has at least one solo, they each have the same amount of solos. It's also really catchy and fun to dance to.

Heart touching song.
I mean how could be this song at No.28?
It is a kind of song what should be voted.

A really heart touching song. Must be ranked way up higher, like in the top fives or something.
