The piano at the beginning of the song is similar to both New Found Glory's 2006 track, "It's Not Your Fault
" and Journey's 1983 single "Faithfully
." New Found Glory's frontman, Chad Gilbert, picked up on the resemblance and jokingly tweeted: Props to the @onedirection "steal my girl" single for reworking the "it's not your fault" piano part into a top 40 single. Let me get a cut.
Bumetta wasn't aware of the resemblance until he read the song reviews. "When we sat down and played the piano lick, nobody had any references in their head about what they wanted to write or anything and then I saw all the things about that [Journey song]," he told MTV News. "At the end of the day, the lyric and the melody have nothing to do with any other song that I have ever heard. Sometimes there's only so many things you can do with a piano at that tempo."
