My grandson is 4 and loves this song. He has taught himself most of the words so you can imagine his delight when I gave him this. He played it non-stop for over an hour and where we were all fed up, he was just loving it. His mother had to play it all the way home in the car. Excellent item for a 1D fan!!!
As my teenage years are but a dot on the horizon behind me, I've become very choosy in my choices of music, once in a while a 'modern' tune catches my ear, and so I buy it but sadly almost all the tracks that accompany it just don't measure up. Buddy Holly where art thou ?............
I'm a mega 1D and their first song has been far from a disappointment , it was everything I expected and more and the quality of the vocals is simply fantastic, not to mention how catchy the song is! The b side na na na is also very good and I look forward to hearing more from these boys as they have a big career ahead of them! Love love love them! X
