With #JAMpackedholiday Day Sixteen here we’re on the home stretch!
You guys had to realize a One Direction song would appear sometime during this process right? (Cue the evil laughter.) I mean, I wouldn’t be me without one thrown in here.
After getting to hear One Direction’s new album Made in the AM early I was easily in love with the entire thing, but even from that first listen I knew I had already found a few key favorites. Just so happens one of my top choices, “What A Feeling” is also one of Louis and Liam’s favorites.
I probably go so hard for “What A Feeling” because it’s reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac, an all time classic and a band close to my heart. Harry, Louis, Niall, and Liam are definitely embracing and purposefully channeling their inner Stevie Nicks and company.
There’s a sweet but sexy edge throughout “What A Feeling.” One Direction manages to not float too far with their oohs and ahhs by utilizing a thumping bass line that keeps the song grounded. Everything else is fair game and fits in amongst the easy breezy 70s tones. The harmonies are smooth and layered perfectly as anybody who has heard a One Direction song before has come to expect. I joke I want their voices to wrap me up all season long because during “What A Feeling” the sparkly wind chimes and light funk beats fit winter to a T.
Have I turned any of you over to the “dark side” with One Direction love yet?
P.S. – If One Direction isn’t your thing, there’s plenty of other ace songs in #JAMpackedholiday!
Until next time,
