One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful

Taking a look at the chart, X-factor is pretty prominent.  JLS are riding high towards the top; Leona Lewis and Olly Murs both have new singles imminent; and don't even get me started on Swagger frickin' Jagger herself...

And now there's Wand Erection to add to the list.  What Makes You Beautiful is basically the result of combining McFly, Grease's Summer Nights and Pat Benetar's Hit Me With Your Best Shot in a pink fluffy cupcake.  They're all in the same bloody key.  It's not exactly a bad song per se, it's just unoriginal and clearly aimed at the tween demographic.  It's a damn sight better than Lloyd's contrived attempt at being cool.  At least these five Pokemon playing, Bieber wannabes accept what they are - a simplistic, cheesy pop act that will get ten year old girls across the country weeing themselves with excitement.

Still, even reviewing this is pointless.  While they should be going nowhere, there's only one direction these boys are heading - the top of the charts. Sigh.
