12. "Gotta Be You"


This video may actually be more confusing than "You & I" but at least it is comical. Why do they all feel the need to rendezvous at that little cabin on separate modes of transportation? Why couldn't they just carpool? The synchronized walking and posing for the camera are all just too much. This is so fetus 1D.

11. "Little Things"


Not going to lie, this video is boring as hell. Sure, they all look wonderful, but it's a snooze-fest. It's like they thought, "We don't have much time, let's just all sit in a circle and sing." Love ya, 1D, but this wasn't your best.

10. "Midnight Memories"


This video is good, but that's about all it is. Sure, it's super cool when they get to the top of the Tower Bridge and it has its funny moments, but this one doesn't make me feel all fuzzy inside like some of the other videos.

9. "Steal My Girl"


I am really conflicted about this one. I love it and I think it's super fun, but I also feel like they just decided to throw a bunch of stuff into the desert to see what happens. Sumo wrestlers, ballet dancers, a marching's all exciting, but hella confusing.

8. "What Makes You Beautiful"


I love to hate this video. In fact, the reason it's this far up the list is because it's their first video, therefore it is historic. Also, Louis is wearing red pants, which makes it extremely special.

7. "Live While We're Young"


This video makes it this far up the list for the rowing dance move alone. They're having a blast, they're enjoying each other's company, and it just makes me so happy. Also, I want to get one of those inflatable balls they had in the lake.

6. "Kiss You"


I do not need to explain my love for this video. It is so chaotic and literally has no plot line, but who cares? Let's go skiing! Let's go surfing! No wait, let's go to a jail! It's adorable and fun and they all look like they're having the time of their lives.

5. "One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)"


I mean, c'mon, this video is so adorable and EXTREMELY underrated. The fact that they filmed it themselves is so cool and I love that it shows them all over the world. Also, the cameo by the Prime Minister is everything.

3. "Story of My Life"


Not going to lie, I shed a few tears the first time I watched this video. The pictures hanging from the wall, the boys recreating their childhood memories, it is all just so perfect. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

2. "One Thing"


This is the video that made everyone a 1D fan, let's be real. They're all just so adorable playing around London and being all innocent. Louis in suspenders, Harry in a's like a #tbt in video form.

1. "Best Song Ever"


"and Niall, with the shimmy, with the shimmy...." Best. Video. Ever. Not only do they look FAB, but they each shine in such a special way. I think we've all watched this video over 100 times. BLESS.
