The winning formula for a "best songs ever" should not be entirely consumed on "oohs" and "yeahs." The innards continues their very familiar regimen of teen pop

Fab Five they aren’t, but they try to tell fellow Directioners that using “Best Song Ever”

Some have already rushed to the silly conclusion that One Direction is today’s generation of the Beatles. They may be English imports, but their musical flames hardly hold a candle to that of the Fab Four. But in the world of easy-access pop, One Direction tugs the ear. On “Best Song Ever,” it’s the same old song and dance, except it’s dressed in a little hyperbole (“How we danced all night to the best song ever/We knew every line now I can’t remember”). Blame it on the catchy rock-tinged beats, the intrusive sampling of The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” or bad memory loss, but 1D has a hard time recalling the lyrics to that best song: “I think it went , oh, oh, oh/I think it went yeah, yeah yeah.” The tune is sure to win Best Dressed at those karaoke sing-a-long affairs, but it’s kinda hard to believe that this best song ever was actually done up using “ohs” and “yeahs.” “Baba O’Riley” may be in the running for Best Song Ever, but not this. It’s not even better than 1D’s “Live While We’re Young.”
