Much better than second single and just good fun type track. 3rd UK top 10. 14 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#9 and Ireland#6. US#39. 200,000 copies sold in the UK.

the 3rd single, also amazing!
******
Omg I love this song so much!!!!!!
Such a great party song!
***
Pretty average.
*****
First listen back in November, loved it straight away. It's a catchy song but fairly generic and so I can't give it a 6.
****
An improvement on Gotta Be You, but not as good as What Makes You Beautiful. Some pretty catchy pop though!
****
A catchy and fun pop song, but it's not as good as What Makes You Beautiful.
*****
Another solid pop tune here.

Peaked at #2 on my personal chart.

Came in at #20 on my TOP 200 OF 2012.

4 ------> 5

Not only is it stupid and pointless, it is really boring and lousy as well.
*****
I like this more than What Makes You Beautiful. Their best track thus far.

A very catchy track and the production is very strong despite being quite generic and similar to What Makes You Beautiful. My favourite track from them so far. I think I love it because of its association with I Want It That Way.

They're still too annoying to take seriously.
***
I've never minded this but I've just found it to be a lesser "What Makes You Beautiful". This seems strange as that song has a more awkward melody, but it somehow succeeds over this.

Not as good as 'What Makes You Beautiful'.
*****
Just as good as 'What Makes You Beautiful', as far as bubblegum pop goes, this A grade material. Insanely catchy, great harmonies again and that big sing-a-long style chorus.

The video is painfully cheesy though, it's awful.
***
IIII Waaaant It Thaaaat Wayyyy.

Bland!
*****
Love this track, which is strange as I'm not usually a fan of the boy bands (One Direction are one of the few exceptions).

IMO, it's better than What Makes You Beautiful!

Sorry, probably got caught up in the hype of this one. 5*.

No thanks!

Not my cup of tea, but it's ok.

Not too bad, but not really that interesting either.
*****
starke nummer!! 5*
**
Only just tolerable .
****
i liked it... better than what makes you beautiful

No-one needs to plaigarise the Backstreet Boys right now
*****
My favourite One Direction song, just edging out More Than This. Very very catchy.
**
This isn't great. It's boring and UK music is annoying me at the moment because they are trying to bring back the boy bands when I was just getting happy with them not being popular.
****
This one is interesting. There was a point in time in 2012 where I loved this and would've easily given it 6 stars. A lot has changed since then.

It's really weird that I once enjoyed this so much as nowadays I'm so over One Direction and just want them to go away for a few year. But then again at the time I did have multiple 1D stans as friends with one of those not being able to handle even the slightest criticism or negative comment about them so that possibly led me to end up loving this. But once i dissociated myself from those 1D stans my tolerance of 1D started dropping; which takes me to this. While I don't love this anymore I still enjoy it a fair bit, which is quite strange considering my views on them.

Onto the song itself, I can definitely see the similarities with "I Want It That Way" but I think this is better. It's very catchy, fun and enjoyable and one of a few of their songs that I think can actually appeal to other demographics outside what seems to me to be the only demographic they care about, that being teenage girls. I think it's easily their best and I'll be surprised if they can outdo it because most other releases from them have been poor. I think this deserved to be their biggest (and signature) hit instead of "What Makes You Beautiful". I'm interested to see how well this will age for me in future.

Better AND catchier than their first single.

More annoying junk from 1D.

Typical generic track that gets old fast.
Only tolerable in small doses. 2.5 - 3.
*****
It's great. Much like Zacco, I had many One Direction stans as friends (in fact all my female friends bar a couple, both of whom are now Directioners :P) so I felt guilty to like this so much then. It's aged greatly and despite never hating it it's better than I would have said. It's surely their second best behind their debut and with "What Makes You Beautiful" it's better than everything else they've done. "I Want It That Way" >>>>>> though.
