Best One Direction Songs

The Top Ten
1 What Makes You Beautiful What Makes You Beautiful Cover Art

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!

THIS IS definitely THE BEST! And if your scrolling through down all of these... Just reading the comments WELL even if you don't think this song is the best or you have never heard it just listen to this!
EVER since I was a kid I always loved one direction! They seemed nice, silly and SUPER FRIENDLY! And this song had made me feel so good about who I amas a person. As an eight year old I would sing it every day all day?! And when it came on the radio I would rather sit still and take it all in or I would sing my heart out! When I was about nine years old I got this HUGE 1D book! I thought I should read it but instead I looked at the pictures! A few years later, I was looking through my bedroom one day and found the book lieing around. It explained all the members of the groups and I knew ther personally and they wrote a few things! From this I really got to know who they were and by listening to this Song I figured out who I really was!

2 Best Song Ever Best Song Ever Cover Art

I love this song since it's so diverse of the singers and everyone has a part in this song. I don't like it when people only think of one direction as Harry Styles and Zayn Malik. I mean there are other members too. Liam is hot, have you ever thought of that. In my opinion he is way more hotter than Harry or Zayn. Also Niall looks so cute. He's like the baby of the band. I mean he has no tattoos when everyone else does. His blonde hair is the best part. And Louis is amazing and he has an amazing voice. He is like multi talented with the voice, his dance ability, and just hot looks. My favorite of the band members from least to greatest would be Zayn (not that hot and he left), Harry (I hate the hair), Louis (he is an amazing singer his voice is amazing), Niall (he's so cute I could just squish his blonde hair), and FINALLY Liam (he's so hot). It's true Liam is as hot as a ghost pepper.

I honestly don't really like One direction, and I haven't listened to their music enough to really understand what their music is really about. I'm not that big of a fan, but I really like best song ever. This should definitely be number one, because this song honestly never gets old. Its definitely their signature song. Even people who aren't big fans of this band love this song. I think it should be somewhere in the top ten. What makes you beautiful is pretty repetitive and everyone has heard it. Best song ever is the best song ever, and the best songs are always number one.

The title of the song describe the song. This is just the Best song.. Ever! -. I love it! All of their songs are perfect and I can't choose my favorite... But this song is so really exciting to listen when your bored, sad, happy, studying, working and breathing! This is my favorite song and music video So far... I love all their song. But this should be the number 1... Really addicted to this song...!

Catchy, fun, dancable, great production, great singing, surprisingly well-executed The Who sample, Best Song Ever is just a blast to listen to. People who hate it haven't even listened to it, they only hate because it's 1D and they just assume everything by 1D is crap.
But if the take the time to actually listen to it, they'll find it's actually an exceptionally made, very enjoyable pop song.

3 One Thing One Thing Cover Art

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

It makes me feel wanted and it's just different. Just like me. It's not too upbeat but still cheery all the same. I just love this song. Along with every other song… way to ruin the moment. Haha! Point is, the song makes EVERYONE feel good about themselves and it has that "magical" touch to it. It makes me feel special quite frankly. And EVERYONE should be able to feel special. Feel like the sun was made for them. Feel like they are loved by someone. Feel like they have their very own Prince Charming awaiting for them. Feel free to be whomever they like. Feel free to do whatever they like. Feel likeTHEMSELVES. Yep. That was pretty deep. Wasn't it? Haha!

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!

4 Live While We're Young Live While We're Young Cover Art

I love this song I listen to it most days. It raises my spirits and gets me ready for a boring day at school but I have to say, why isn't "history" in the top ten that's one of my favourite songs ever.

When this song came out, it was catchy and fun, and I was thrilled to have a One Direction song like this. But now that they have matured so much, it just seems very fake. It wasn't about the boys' real experiences and it was clearly inauthentic. Now that the band has started writing their own songs and singing about real things happening to them, it is easy to see how manufactured this type of boy and pop is.

I love this song very much I think that this the best song in the whole world east or west this song is the best you will never get bored while listening to this song. You will definitely enjoy as it has got a very good beat and rhythm. This song is better than baby of Justin Bieber yaar honestly love this crazy, cool, nice, amazing and awesome song. One direction you rocks as well as this song...

This song is so good! I love it! It has such a great beat! This song always makes me want to sing to it and dance around. I normally don't dance a lot so that is saying a lot. I believe this is one of One Direction's best songs ever! This song is just so great and amazing! I think this song just makes people happy which I believe is important for a song to do!

5 Story of My Life Story of My Life Cover Art

According to me, one direction is the best band ever.. and this song is one of their best. The beauty of this song is breathtaking and the lyrics are just amazing... no doubt this should be in the top three.. the video though.. everything is perfect.. The boys all look really nice: ZAYN and Waliyha, being the centre of attention, the cutest siblings ever.. Harry with his mommy being a cupcake as always! Liam just like a cute little chubby rabbit.. Niall being daddy's boy, and Louis, tiny little duckling and ZAYN'S MIA.. everything was just beyond awesome in the song.. no wonder why I have voted for this ♥

I really think Story Of My Life should be ranked higher, because the song is really sweet, the lyrics and the music are amazing, and the video features the boys' families, which shows them what the boys do when they shoot music videos and what's it's like to be in the spotlight. Overall, this is one of their best videos yet!

The first song that I loved from them, it always makes me cry. The lyrics are amazing and their vocals are on point. I just think that Harry should exercise to not strain his voice in performances because his vocals are already amazing and I don't want him to damage his throat. This song reminds me of so much memories, it is so nostalgic

I am not a fan of one direction. I pronounce the boys' names wrong, and get verbally murdered by directioners. But I still really love this song. The music video is also pretty good, as it actually relates to the song, which makes it different to many others I've seen.
Very well one direction.
Well done.

6 Night Changes Night Changes Cover Art

I had to double check if I missed this song in the top ten, then checked down in the contenders but it still wasn't there. This is unbelievable because this a really good song although I'm not a big fan 1d but this song so good, it tells the truth and the video is like a footage of my life, this should be in the top 3..songs that I really like are (in order)-
1. Night Changes
2. Story Of My Life
3. Steal My Girl

I wasn't a fan of 1D until I heard this magnificent piece of art. I was amazed when I found out that this song was sung by them. After hearing this song, I understood that they have real ability.
This song will forever be known as the day 1D grow from a 'boy band' to a 'man band'

Night Changes is my favorite song off of FOUR (underlined) Ha! Oh, Niall. The lyrics are so romantic and sweet and the video is PERFECT! But are they trying to give their fans heart attacks?! It was like I was ACTUALLY on a date with each of them! Laugh out loud

It is so unique from every other One Direction song: the lyrics speak to me and the tune is peaceful and smooth. The video was a good idea cause it would make any 1D fan faint from going on a "date" with each of the members.

7 They Don't Know About Us They Don't Know About Us Cover Art

They don't know about us is my favorite song ever and I wish it'd got more attention and had been a single from them. It sums up relationships. When you're parents are telling you you're not in love and you are. You're just like "They Don't kNow About Us" I listen to it all the time and it just makes me smile. When I'm sad, or mad at my family I just love listening to it for some reason. It shows all of their voices, especially Zayn. I love all of them, and I love this song. The lyrics are spectacular. I played this song for my family and they didn't know if was One Direction's

It's a pity this song was never a single, nor was it ever performed live. It is a truly beautiful song and showcases just how amazing, smooth and strong Zayn's voice is. My favorite HANDS DOWN. I highly recommend. Many people do not know it, but it should be one of the first you listen to if you're discovering 1D. it is not at all mainstream but it is one of their very best.

This song is truly beautiful. It may be quite simple, but that is One Direction. Simple, yet beautiful. Simplicity is an area that is commonly frowned upon by others, yet these five boys make it work. I actually did not like One Direction very much before this song, but now I'm hooked.

Ohh my god. Hat's off to 1D guys. This is so cute song. I'm in love with it. Actually when someone asks me about my favorite song, I get confuse, because all songs of one direction are my all time favorite songs.

8 Little Things Little Things Cover Art

Personally, I think this is their best song yet. I've always had a thing for these extremely attractive boys with stunning voices, and this song is what really made me fall for them even harder. There need to be more songs like this. I can literally feel the emotion through their words and it's just soothing and soft and melodious. Most of their songs have been the jumpy, dance-along kind of thing, but this one is a beautiful collaboration of slow, harmonious music that brings a smile upon my face. It reminds me that despite our imperfections, there is someone out there who still loves you. Why isn't this song higher up the list? I have no clue! Vote for it!

This is the sweetest prettiest song they have ever come out with. Its beautiful. Louis' solo makes me cry almost every time! And this song causes controversy that I enjoy (larry) because Harry sings "And all his little things" instead of the actual lyric "and all your little things" basically every time he sings the song. Its adorable and brave.
But yeah, this song is wonderful and deserves to be #1.

I love Harry's solo lyrics because for me they're the most relatable. This song makes me feel like I'm pretty, and I'm sure every girl can relate to the lyrics.

Until now, this is still my favorite song that they have, because it's really inspirational. It has nice and sweet tune. And at the same time, it shows girls that we can't be perfect, but we must accept ourselves and that one day, someone will love us if we just stay true and love ourselves.

9 I Would I Would Cover Art

I personally think Take Me Home is the worst One Direction album because of how rushed and inauthentic it sounds. However, I Would is a classic tune that I love to listen to. This song sounds more mature than some of the other tracks.

Amazing song! The lyrics are just so sweet and the tune is very catchy! Never got tired listening to this rocking song... Very sweet, very cute, absolutely fantastic! Go One Direction!

What Makes you Beautiful is only at the top because it's the only song that people know by them! I Would is definitely the best; take it from me, I know every song by them by heart.

I'm not a huge fan of 1D, but this would probably be my most favourite song from them. I first heard it while I was on holiday and have been addicted to it since.

10 Kiss You Kiss You Cover Art

I think Kiss You is One Direction's best song especially because it is so upbeat. Everybody likes What Makes You Beautiful and Little Things, but to me, those songs are so overused. On the contrary, Kiss You never gets tiring. I used to love the songs Up All Night and Live While We're Young, but now I think that Kiss You is the best! Even my stick in the mud sister likes this song. Also, what I love about this song is that it NEVER gets tiring! Everyone should at least know it!

I never want to stop playing this song... when it comes on the radio I tell everyone around to be quiet so I can listen to it. It never gets tiring and I can always turn to this song when I have nothing else to listen to. Even 'What Makes You Beautiful can get a little tiring and boring, but this song never does. LOVE IT!

I think that this song got the power and when I listen to it there is a really speacial feeling spreading inside my body. It's that happy song nearly nobody knows about. I think it's one of the best song in their new album, and watch the music video and you will love it right away! It's great.

The awesome song combined with the quirky video makes it the best! It's not a 'scream and shout' type song, it has a certain tempo, which is different from the other 1D songs which makes it my favourite.

The Contenders
11 More Than This More Than This Cover Art

I'm broken do you here me I'm blinded cause you are everything I see I'm dancing alone I'm praying that your heart wheel just turned around and as I walk up to your door my head turns to face the floor cause I can't look in the eyes and say. When he opens his arms and holds you close tonight it just don't feel right cause I can't love you more than this. When he lays you down I might just die inside it just don't feel right cause I can't love you more than this. If I'm louder would you see me. Would you lay down in my arms and rescue me cause we are the same. You save me when you leave it is gone again. And then I see you on the street in his arms I get week my body fails I am on my knees prayin
(chorus) sorry I didn't finish the song! Niall is mine! Love you one direction!

One of their best songs! Nialls solo is my favorite his voice is so amazing.
I love one direction, I've been up all night listening to their music ore an over again.

Really awesome song! I really love the niall and zayn's part. They are amaZayn and phenomeNiall. All the boys. Really brilLiam and faboLouis! I listen to this song, just a million times.. You guys, directioners, who doesn't hear this song. I will said to you that is very nice awesome cool or whatever! Ralle love One Direction. I also love their song WMYB, one thing, kiss you and LWWY... All of these must be the no. 1... Also their newest and coolest song for now "one way or another"! Vote for that song below guys. Its top 40+ pff...

One of the best songs of 1D. Every member of 1D contributed their best to sing this song. The tune, lyrics, their voice everything is just perfect in this song! Specially, I love the part of harry styles and niall horan. This song at least deserves the top 3. So please listen this song and vote for it!

12 Rock Me Rock Me Cover Art

Lovee this song! Gives me the feels really bad laugh out loud. Like who wouldn't want One Direction to rock them? :P I love the heavier sound to this song compared to most of their other light, pop-y music, it's a great change up. I had a hard time deciding which to choose because I'm a hardcore Directioner, but this song came out on top.

The song is just as perfect as the 5 lads...as I listen to any song...I start loving more and more...this song is the best of all...hopefully every directioner has listened to the song...and if not..
Just listen to it once...its an awesome song...
Guys everyone's perfect in there..u cannot judge them out...
Every song is perfect...
Every lad is PERRR- FECT...

I love this song. First I hated One Direction. My friend is a huge fan. So when I was at her home she turned on the WHOLE ALBUM OF 1 HOUR LONG! She was killing me! Guess what I did the next day? I downloaded a song! ROCK 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.

13 You & I You & I Cover Art

This is one of my favorite songs. This is better than another songs from the top. I love Zayn's high note and the way Harry sings his part. All of the boys have so beautiful voices in this song. It's one of their best songs.

One of the bests from all the three albums. The highlight is admittedly Zayn's amazing high note! Wonderful meaning to the fans and also sure favorable to people outside the fandom. An absolute GREAT song!

I love All of there songs but this is one of my favourites from midnight memories. I'm a massive fan and know all there songs but this stood out from all the others since hearing it for the first time on 1d day.

Love this song "we don't want to be like them we can make it till the end nothing can come between us not even the gods above can separate the two of us no nothing can come between you and I oh, you and I.."

14 Gotta Be You Gotta Be You Cover Art

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!

This song is by far my favorite! Harry can go so high in this song and it just makes me so happy to listen to it! It just has an empowerment to it when the chorus starts. I could listen to it over and over again and never get tired of it... But, I am like that with all of their songs!

Some people don't like this song. They think the lyrics are offensive. But it honestly don't get it. The tunes beautiful and Liam sounds perfect.

15 Happily

This is one of those songs when it starts playing you can't resist drop what you are doing and sing along.

I love this song and it's my personal favorite from the album Midnight Memories.

This song makes me so happy every time I listen to it. My absolute #1 favorites.

Happily is my favorite because of the sweet and romantic lyrics. I love it!

16 Last First Kiss Last First Kiss Cover Art

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.

Okay now this is an emotional song by 1D, and they did it so well. We know them for as rocking boyband but believe it they can be whatever they want to. This song fills me up with so much emotions.

This had to be in the top 5! Really? Please vote for it, there is no song better than this... Listen once, and you will be flattered.. Please vote my fave song!

Perhaps the best song by them, its catchy hookline, semiotic lyrics and amazing vocals do wonders in the listeners' hearts. No doubt they've earned so many fans.

17 Forever Young

Those days<3 1d is a part of my childhood. I'm not a crazy fangirl like all of you up here but secretly I always had a tiny crush.. K fine a huge crush on zayn. I'm not a fanatic laugh out loud. But I love these guys. And their first album was my favourite. After that they just, t you know grew up. But that's how it's supposed to be so... :') it's just that I get nostalgic when I think of these guys. Where's the innocence? You know when cute guys try to be "hot"... Why don't they realize that they are already too hot? They don't need to try by wearing bad boy stuff and getting bunch of tattoos and fighting qith each other all blah blah. But this everyone has to agree with. Nothing compares to what they were and how thwir music used to be.

I love this song. It is so amazing and even though that it is a redone version of a song, it is still the best song ever. It completely describes how you feel when you think about growing old. And how much you want to just stay young forever. I love this song. And if you don't... Like go search it up on YouTube or something. It is a phenomenal song.

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!

Their version of Forever Young is really touching. I wish they had released this song in the USA! I enjoyed this song very much. I want to listen to this song all the time. I can't help but want to cry when I listen to this song. It is amazing.

18 Stockholm Syndrome Stockholm Syndrome Cover Art

This song is literally my favourite song in the entire world. In front of every other song I've listened to. Stockholm needs to be up in the top ten cause it is just amazing. The lyrics are winded together so well and the beat is so different and cool. Ten out of ten.

THIS SONG. Amazing.

Their voices in this are incredible, and the 80's vibe is great. I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. It should be 1.

What the hell?! #52?! Seriously?! In my opinion this is their most amazing song. The kyrics are so mature! And liam's solo is to die for! Vote you guys!

I love this song very much and it should be on top of this list. I love the line " baby I'll never leave if you keep holding me this way... ! "

19 Nobody Compares Nobody Compares Cover Art

I love the music of it in the song when it starts saying, "Cause no one ever looks so good in a dress, and it hurts, cause I know you won't be mine tonight" awesome. I could replay it over and over again.

Number 19?!?!?! Should be at least in the top 5! This is the best song I have ever heard! It's cute and sweet and their voices sound better than ever!

This song is the boom digity! This song never gets old! Common guys vote for this song! Should be top ten!

This song makes me feel beautiful. The boys vocals are also amazing.

20 Drag Me Down Drag Me Down Cover Art

I really do think Drag Me Down is a great pump-up song. It came out right after Zayn left the band, and it made people take them seriously again. It has become quite a hit with its classic repeated lyrics. No other 1D album has a song quite like Drag Me Down:

I love this song. My name is Madison and I am 19. I am a huge Directioner. Harry had super long curly hair. I'm typing this in 2019 because he looks different now. I still love One Direction to this day

Honestly this should be way higher! Different than their other songs and much easier and good on the ears with pump up tune!

This is a really good song! The lyrics talk about how you shouldn't let things get to you. It has a great life lesson!

21 Moments Moments Cover Art

This song cannot be described in words. This is my all time favorite song and before I even liked One Direction I loved this song. It was actually the first One Direction song I ever bought and it must have been what made me fall in love with them. Anyway this song is extremely haunting and something you will never forget. Sit down and listen to the lyrics. They are beautifully put together by Ed Sheeran who is a true lyrical genius. I'm not going to explain what I think this song is about because I believe that it will mean something different to everyone... But I guess all I really want to say here is that I love this song. It is amazing. Thank you Ed and 1D!

I think this is at the top of their greatest songs because it is one of their only songs that really recognises what a lot of people go through. It is about a boy committing suicide after he cannot live with his deceased girlfriend. I think it just shows that 1D aren't all about sex and having fun in life, they can actually show feeling, unlike a lot of artist E.G. lady Gaga. It makes them more real.

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.

This song is so emotional. It has been my favorite song since I knew about 1D since more than a year ago. This is truly different than other songs, this song actually has deep meanings and this song really brought out the boys' amazing vocals. This song just soothes me and calms me down, yet cheers me up when I'm having a hard time. You should really give this song a listen. Thank me later.

22 Everything About You Everything About You Cover Art

I love this song! Why is it here? It's so catchy and all the solos are perfectly done. Its everything about you, you, you. Everything that you do, do, do. From the way that we touch baby, to the way that you kiss on me. Awesome, you should listen to it guys. And, I'm absolutely in love with zayn's voice. He's an amazayn singer and so are the rest

I love this song, when I'm not feeling good with my parents yelling at each other or at my sister, I just put this on my IPod, put my headphones on, and I instantly feel better! And I' m just IN LOVE with Nialler's solo, I can listen to it loads and loads of times!

So this is my favorite... I really like all of their songs but this one just means somethuing to me... I love you guys... I hope you really do know how great you are... Keep making music... I'm so exited for the new album "Take Me Home"!

Really? On 23? This has to be in top 10. The lyrics are amazayn you should listen to it please vote for it... Has to somewhere ahead... Such beautiful lyrics And beautiful voices by the best boy band. Check this catchy song out!

23 Up All Night Up All Night Cover Art

Love it, just simply love it! Better than what makes you beautiful and one thing, duh! The music, the song just blends in together. Also I also love the backup singers too. And the leading vocal was just simply WOW! I love this song. I loved it, I love it and I will love it!

Really cool I like niall horan a lot!?! But I'm not obsessed with him! I think it is a little overwellming to have people be saying I LOVE you when they don't even really know you as well as they think they do! But that's my opinion thanks for your time!?! Stay true Niall Horan!?!

As cheesy as it is, this song will always have a place in my heart. It's fun nature seems very real to me. Some people hate their first album, but I think it was an experiment as to who the boys were. Their music has gotten much better.

Yes! This is my favortite song! The thing is, people like What Makes You Beatiful more than anything else. That's probably cause they think they are singing to them. Up All Night is much better that any JB songs. I love every single One Direction SOng there is, but Up All NIght is my favorite.

24 Back for You Back for You Cover Art

I thought this song was in the top ten after hearing it! It's so so catchy and it doesn't go out of your head! It's so amazingly catchy!

It's a song by One direction that I can never forget. A melody in my heart forever. Love it! And One Direction!

Love this song by One Direction. It is track #11 from Take Me Home. The Best Song Ever!

My best song... I love it

25 Midnight Memories Midnight Memories Cover Art

How come is this song in 21? It should be higher man, if you love d 1D than obviously you will love this song too! Than you must vote this song & it should be higher a lot in this list...

Love this song but it needs to be either eighth or ninth in the top ten yet the top ten goes on and on and on to every last song.

This is one of the best songs to play at parties, or for when you're alone forever and have your own parties.

This is my favorite song by 1D! I was so shocked when I saw thatvit was ranked so low. it should be in the top 20 at leazt, if not in the top 10. if it were up to me, this would be ranked #1. please change this list
