  • Lyrics
  • This toe-tapping 1980's influenced rocker opens with a big crunching guitar riff. Niall Horan told Billboard magazine its his favorite on Midnight Memories: "I love that '80s rock vibe, I'm a massive Eagles fan. Love Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, The Who."
  • The song was written by 1D's Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson with their frequent collaborators, John Ryan and Julian Bunetta. Teddy Geiger also got his first One Direction songwriting credit on this song. The American singer-songwriter and musician is best known for his debut single, "For You I Will (Confidence)," which peaked at #29 on the US Hot 100 when he was just 17-years-old.
  • This song was recorded entirely in a live setting, with the 1D members singing with guitarists, bassists and drummers.
