The biggest pop group on the planet, otherwise known as One Direction, have today released ‘Best Song Ever’ and so the question stands: Is this really the best song ever? Apart from the few million teeny boppers that would walk through fire to smell Harry Styles’ hair, I speak on behalf of the entire music world when I say no, this is not the best song that has ever been created.
‘Best Song Ever’ is the first song of the group’s forthcoming third studio album and is also the song featured on the trailer for their 3D movie “This Is Us”, which will be released in Australian cinemas on September 19 (because yes, they’ve got a second movie coming out).
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a One Direction hater. They’ve dominated the pop genre for the past three or so years and have produced another cracker with this new release. They’ve also sold over 30 million records worldwide. Regardless of who you are or your music tastes, you’ve got to credit the success that the boy band have reached in such a short period of time.
I have compiled a short list of pop songs that are better than ‘Best Song Ever’.
