One Direction’s New Album Sounds Like An 80s Throwback

Journey, is that you?

1. So this is One Direction’s new song, “Midnight Memories”

2. Sounds a lot like Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” right?

3. “Diana”

4. Has some “Footlose” vibes.

5. “You & I”

6. Has that 80s ballad sound, just like Journey’s “Open Arms”

7. “Little Black Dress”

8. Rocks just as hard as AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long”

9. “Little White Lies”

10. Grooves just as nicely as Starship’s “We Built This City”

11. “Does He Know?”

12. Sounds quite a bit like Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl”

13. “Alive”

14. Has that “bad boy rock” quality just like The Beastie Boys’ “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)”

15. And “Best Song Ever”

16. Although disputed by fans, DOES have an intro quite similar to The Who’s “Baba O’riley”

Regardless of the similarities to other songs, I think this album is One Direction’s best. Keep the Rock n Roll alive, guys!
