(Fill in the blank)
It’s known, that One Direction loves pulling references from other songs – from Journey, to The Who, to The Clash. Spinning old classics and giving their modern music a glint of the past has kind of become their thing.
But when One Direction dropped their surprise single ‘Drag Me Down’ on Friday (July 31), we weren’t hearing hints of classic rock. Instead, 1D is bringing us something more updated – less rock ’n roll, more pop.
However, it kind of seems, as if no one can quite put their finger on what ‘Drag Me Down’ sounds like – honestly – neither can I. The name-dropping starts with Michael Jackson, continuing with Ginuwine’s ‘Pony’, (not really) ending With Nick Jonas. And, since everyone loves a reference point, we’ve collected the best tweets on what people think that One Direction’s ‘Drag Me Down’ sounds like.
