This song has worn me down and i actually think it's quite good and the video sells it. The song is also the highest charting UK boyband single in the US ever overtaking Take That's Back For Good #7 peak from November 1995. 4th UK top 10. 22 weeks in the UK top 100. 190,934 sold while #1. Their second and last UK#1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. US#3. 600,000 copies sold in the UK.

Their biggest selling single in the UK.

actually this is alright. vocals are off at time but it has a cool heavy beat.

the accent is very offputting

Good song.
****
Surprisingly I still like this track. In many respects, it would be easy for me to not like this with all the recipes for disaster ('oh oh oh OH oh', somewhat daggy attempt at trendy beat, the fact that it's a corny boyband love song) but somehow the pieces go together well. It wasn't my observation, but I like the way that for much of the verses, they end and begin the lines with the same word, it's a clever way to make it more compelling, and there's probably some science behind the catchiness factor in that. 3.8

Actually really growing on me finally. Definitely one of their best to date along with Gold Forever.
**
I'm finding this overwhelming derivative and predictable. Crappy.
******
Good, but I've been on and off this song. I've decided that I like this song and I'm finding it to be catchy. Great to listen to in the car with the volume up.

5* -> 6*. Absolutely love it now.

Sounds so.... European...
*****
As much as I think the concept of boybands are cheesy and some of the guys in this group are rather odd looking, I can't help but love this. Probably the first 'boyband' to crack the top 20 in Australia in a long time.

The heavy accordion-laden beat really sells it.
*
Very repeative and crap.
****
I have mixed feelings about this. It's catchy and all that but at the same time it reminds me of the horrific Danza Kuduro. 3.5
****
Catchy and cool.

Peaked at #30 on my personal chart.

Came in at #174 on my TOP 200 OF 2011.

The Wanted's best. Very enjoyable and catchy.
*
Why is the UK bringing in all the gay boy bands back? This is boring and sooooo 10 years ago.
******
Flawless.

I kinda want to like this, but it's way to repetitive and average. If this is one of those new boybands, they sound nothing like it and it comes off as one of those terrible European dance hits that should be decent, but are so annoying because of its repetitiveness. It goes absolutely nowhere and where are the classic boyband harmonies? One Direction craps all over this rubbish.
*****
Stil love this. Boyband mania is slowly coming back
*****
Great and fun, shame it didn't make the top 10.
****
Still a good track and has aged better than I would've expected it to. It's catchy, fun and I really like the beat. The fact that they haven't had mass overhype like One Direction has helped me to still enjoy this. My favourite from them and slightly better than One Direction's best track "One Thing".

Well, at least they're less annoying than 1D.
******
For me personally, this is their best song to date. Very deserving of its #3 peak on the US Billboard Hot 100 and glad that it made the top 20 here in Aus but definitely think that it deserved to peak much higher.
**
Very boring. A nothing track.
***
A touching ode to fathers day
****
Catchy BritPop and I must say I do prefer them to One Direction even if they haven't been anywhere near as successful.

Great! It has aged much better than expected. Probably their best.
