A List Of One Direction Songs That Should’ve Been Singles

The boys in One Direction have spent five years creating albums that have changed lives (our lives included) and while we have many songs to choose from, there are bops from each album that should have been singles. Sadly, we couldn’t include every One Direction song that should have been s single, however, we’ve made a short list for your enjoyment:


Clouds is the iconic song the boys opened with on their 2015 On The Road Again Tour. The song comes from their fourth studio album, Four.

Hey Angel

Hey Angel comes from their fifth album, Made In The A.M. and it’s definitely one of the songs that we kept going back to when we first heard the album.

Little White Lies

OMG. This song is so good. This has to be our favorite off their third album, Midnight Memories. Pure pop gold.

Through The Dark

We wanted to choose one song from each album, but with an album like Midnight Memories, we had to add more. Through The Dark is one of our favorites from the album and it definitely deserved better.

Everything About You

It seems like ages since 1D’s first studio album, Up All Night, was released and we still think Everything About You deserved to be a single. Up All Night was very “poppy” and you can definitely tell the difference between this album and newly released music from 1D.


Midnight Memories has so many great songs, we had to add yet another one. Alive is just so good and it sounds even better live.

Currently, One Direction is still on their hiatus. We hope they reunite soon to create another album.
