Can you believe we’re already celebrating 13 YEARS OF ONE DIRECTION! How fast time flies!
On 23rd July 2010, Simon Cowell and his fellow X Factor judges decided to put together 5 strangers who had been rejected as solo contestants and formed the group, One Direction.
Even after coming in third in the competition, this group, which included, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik, went on to become one of the most successful boy bands of all time, breaking records, winning awards, and selling out stadium tours around the world.
Fast-forward to 2023, and today is One Direction’s 13th anniversary! And for today only, I’m going to embrace my inner fangirl. I have been one of their biggest fans since the group was formed and have continued being one after One Direction went on hiatus in 2015.
Even after all these years, I still love the band and remember the lyrics to almost all of One Direction’s songs.
Like I usually do on the 23rd of July of every year to celebrate them, I was on a marathon of listening to One Direction’s best songs and watching their old live performances, and it prompted me to write this post for One Direction’s 13th anniversary in 2023.
Listening to their songs brought up so many memories of my teenage years and reminded me why the group was so loved. The nostalgia!
As I was listening to the One Direction songs, they reminded me of an easier time when I didn’t have any worries and was just enjoying life.
We had some good times, didn’t we?
Even though I like their solo music, and the 1D boys (should we still call them that?) also seem to love what they are doing currently and have successful solo careers, I still miss One Direction performing together as a group, and would love to see them reunite one day.
So I will patiently wait and keep my fingers crossed for a One Direction reunion to happen someday.
For now though, to celebrate One Direction’s 13th anniversary in 2023, I want to share my top 13 One Direction best songs ever.
I had a tough time selecting only 13 best One Direction songs because I love almost all their songs. This is why I have decided to add a few honorable mentions at the end.
