Top 10 Best One Direction Songs

The Top Ten
1 What 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!

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

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...!

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 it's a really great song and should at least be in the top 5! I love it so much

3 One Thing

Every song is wonderful and amazing, but when I hear 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 to 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 Story of My Life

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.

5 Live While We're Young

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!

This song is just awesome I have never ever heard this type of such a beautiful song they all are awesome they sing very nicely actually the truth is that I don't have words to describe them or this song. This songs never get's me bored honestly east or west this song is the best. This is the craziest, coolest, nicest and whatever it is amazing...

6 Night Changes

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

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.

They sang it so beautifully.. I don't know whats in this song but it makes me feel something weird.. Its certainly their best song.. I hope it doesn't remain underrated... listen to it guys!

7 They Don't Know About Us

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.

This is one of my favorite songs! A friend and I always fight because to who is this song. I would cry if someone tell me this song is for me! Just love it! Can't even stop singing this song! In love with it!

8 Little Things

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.

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.

I'm a guy, and this song made me cry my eyes out, it was so beautiful, and I would totally dedicate this song to my girlfriend. Maybe it's because of it's lyrics I loved so much, makes you really want to love your girlfriend for every single "Little Things" she has, this song it's just amazing.

9 I Would

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

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.

Excuse me guys! Can anyone please tell me why this song has been listen as number five? This song definitely deserves to be the best song I have heard in my entire life and this must me at number 1!

The Contenders
11 Rock Me

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.

It's insane that this song isn't in the top ten songs! This is like, the best song ever. I'm in love with it and I just get crazy when I listen to it! Please vote this amazing song everyone!

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.

12 More Than This

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.

This is the song that made me fall in live with them. I don't understand how what makes you beautiful is number 1? That's like their worst song. This song is better. The lyrics are so amazing. It's everything a girl wants a guy to tell her. Their voices in in it are just beautiful.

This is a really great song and I just love the whole song. But the part that I love the most is zayn's part. They are amazayn! I pray that you will see the light, that shining from the stars above

13 You & I

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!

This song is amazing, it's by far the best song on midnight memories- all of the songs are great though. The only other song what beats this is "got to be you".

You & I is definitely the best song of one direction, its all about being together. I love all of their songs but this is definitely my favorite of theirs.

14 Gotta 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.

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!

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!

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 Drag Me Down

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!

17 Last First Kiss

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.

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!

I just love this song because it just makes me have a hope that a guy out there is waiting for me! Definitely not 18 deserves to be in the top 10!

This song is so perfect every time I listen to the album I put this on repeat. I love One Direction (especially Niall)!

18 Stockholm Syndrome

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.

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... ! "

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!

19 Forever Young

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.

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

20 Nobody Compares

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.

21 Moments

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'm appalled that this song isn't in the top 3. It's emotional and raw and real, and it always makes me feel emotional. The boys' voices amplify the meaning of the song, singing with true passion. It's truly the best song they've recorded, and I can't believe it's not ranked at #1. Compared to What Makes You Beautiful at #1, Moments easily eclipses it as far as vocals, emotion, and meaning goes.

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 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 Up All Night

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!

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.

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!?!

Mmmhmm! I could just listen to this song for hours and hours without getting bored. I personally think that this is the BEST one direction song ever! This song is just WOW, how could it be at the bottom of the list?

23 Everything About You

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

It is one of my personal favourite song! The song is refreshing and mind boggling. It should have been placed on much higher rank than this. Guys lets vote this song to make it in number one.

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"!

24 Back for You

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

The instrumental is amazing and there's Harry's low note at the end which is my favourite part of the song. The entire song just sounds amazing.

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 a really cool song. The video is good too. Harry's note at the end is absolutely maddening.
