Just read they're covering Blondie's One Way or Another (now that's a classic song kids) and Undertones Teenage Kicks. Good choices.

I remember "One way or Another" playing on the radio when I was about five. A really great song, and I still sometimes start humming it to myself quite randomly even nowadays.

I think they'll do fine. Of course there will be people criticising them since it's a classic song but I think it's a good choice.

I read about this before christmas. I am shocked on why it is such big news now

Good luck to them. Whether it is good or not, if it raises money for a good cause, then so be it.

I'll be giving them the same treatment as the 1 legged Ethiopian kid that has to hop 3 miles to collect water that appears on the screen along with other foreign beggers during the same program......That's right, i'll be changing the channel.

I heard a little on Youtube where they performed it in China but I stopped because I really didn't like it, they sounded awful.

But I agree with everyone that said it is nice it is for the good cause

But wasn't that a recording for the video and they were stopping and starting to repeat takes so really not an ideal situ to make a decision as to wteher it will be good or not.

I was a big Blondie fan back in the day but will reserve judgement. It surely can't be worse than McFly's cover of Queen's Don't stop me now and I say that as someone who loves McFly

I didn't make a decision, I simply stated they sounded horrible during that performance. And I didn't listen to their constant repeat, I just listened the first take, which I hated.

I think I'll be giving it a miss. And why do they have to do a cover? Why can't an original song be released?

Why couldn't they just get Veronica Mars to do it again

But seriously I wish they weren't doing that particular song The directioners have already taken over the original video on YouTube

It has something to do with the single, so I'll just post it here:

I find this hilarious

Of course that Westlife are bigger than 1D in Asia and I am not sure if they will ever manage to catch them, let alone surpass them there - Westlife won the award in 2006 for selling 7 million there (not sure if it is just albums or albums and singles, I read somewhere it is just albums) - who knows how much the sales has risen in general 6 years later.
