A couple months ago, One Direction announced that they would be going on a hiatus following the release of fifth album Made in the A.M. Fans have been torn between believing that the group's latest LP may be their last and hoping for a future with more new music from the beloved boy band. Over 1D's last few albums, beginning with 2013's Midnight Memories, listeners have witnessed the group transform its sound from bubblegum pop to more a folk- and Seventies rock–inflected approach, which they've settled in comfortably on with MITAM. Following the album's release, we asked our readers to vote for their favorite One Direction songs. Here are the results.

“What a Feeling”

The boys are no stranger to Fleetwood Mac's influence (see: "Fireproof"), but on the hypnotic "What a Feeling," the band goes full "Little Lies" as their harmonies sync up on the track. The Made in the A.M. song also has a nod to "Dreams" with its bass line, making for one of the smoothest and most retro songs on the album. "I was so mad when I first heard that song," recalls frequent 1D co-songwriter and producer Julian Bunetta. "I was so pissed off because the chorus was so good. I was just jealous. The harmonies on that song … I've had so many nights at my house having little dance parties to that song."
