Never Enough

Album: Made in the A.M. (2015)
Charted: 100

Songfacts®:

  • This was penned by One Direction's Niall Horan with Julian Bunetta and John Ryan, who both have written for and with the band members since 2012's Take Me Home. The fourth writer is Jamie Scott, who first hooked up with the guys on their debut album, Up All Night.
  • The song is one of a number of writing collaborations between the Bunetta/ Ryan pair and the 1D band members for Made In The A.M. Rolling Stone asked Bunetta how he wrote and recorded with them during the guys' hectic touring schedule. He replied: "You don't write around it because you can't. You have to write in the middle of it. Just get in the middle of it and write. It's absolute chaos and wonderful. They're all just having fun and writing songs and flying around. No one goes into the place with a spreadsheet, a ruler, a compass and a protractor to write a song."

    "Some of the best times in my whole entire life have been with these guys. Whether it's talking, writing, partying or eating, we just have the best time and a song is bound to be written when we're doing all those things."
  • Niall introduced "Never Enough" during One Direction's First Listen Party by saying it's his favorite song on the album. "We were dancing around like crazy," he said. "I don't even know why I love it, everything is just spot-on for me."
