Despite their infamous breakup in 2015, One Direction fans still stan the boy-band to this day — and not just because they're all certified heartthrobs. Yes, all five members consistently delivered swoon-worthy looks — whether they were doing press for an album, on the red carpet, or on tour — and continue to kill it in their solo careers. But more than anything, Directioners still stand by them because of the way their music makes them feel. The best One Direction lyrics about love and sex are the ones that make your first date, fifth date, one-night stand, or wedding day feel like a movie.
