Pop Opinion – One Direction – Little Things – lacking their own sound and voice.
Pop Opinion - One Direction – Little Things
I cannot write this piece without starting off with a massive rant about this song, yes it’s lovely and the lyrics are nice but it’s not One Direction (ok the vocals are) but everything else about the song is Ed Sheeran – it’s too Sheeran like, it could be a B-side from one of his singles or his next release. The lyrics are cute but they are most suited to a solo singer as they are specially about a person (an ex girlfriend in this case).
I’m glad this is in a different more mature hue, I can also see the sense in writing about song that appeals to girls with low self esteem – the lyrics are so nice you can see girls thinking ‘he’s singing about me’ in their bedrooms.
I just can’t get past the Ed Sheeran thing though – they need to get more involved with their own sound and carve out something more unique. There is no point releasing songs that would be better sung by the writer – at this rate they are just being hiring singers rather than a proper band..this is a dangerous line to go down if they want a long career. The song doesn’t give us an insight into the band, instead we get to find out about Ed’s ex-girlfriend.
What do you think? Are you just pleased it’s a good song or do you think 1D need their own signature sound?
