92* History

Up to funnier-dorkier things in this blog, let’s fangirl today!

I was going to start this post with a DISCLAIMER of “why fangirling isn’t as bad as it sounds” but that would be just trying to convince you that I’m not as immature or dork as I (am) seem. Truth is, I do think that fangirling is a brave, intense way of shouting out what you love. No shame on it. (Just don’t over-fangirl, please.)

In this blog I’ve write about and compared many boybands to my ultimate reference of a succesful boyband but never actually written about “THE” boyband I heavily admire. So after nearly 6 years of listening to almost every album of such boyband, I can’t deny that the industry’s attempt to make me fall in love with 5 (now just 4) british/irish boys that don’t know how to dance… has succeeded.

Yesterday One Direction released the official music video to its single History part of their latest album Made in the A.M.

If you are an average, normal, self-controlled person probably you are unaware of the rush that 1D provoked lately by rumors of his alleged separation, when after losing a band member or letting him go (whateva~) and releasing their latest album, they announced they were taking a break and immediately their fans freaked out!

So there are probably a thousand “Reaction to History” videos out there by now of fans who are preoccupied that this might be One Direction’s last video. Most of these reaction-videos are really funny, over-naturally-reacted and dramatic but here are my TOP 3 so far:

WHAT THE FU.. (0:33) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLYppeLJ6x8

OH NO! (1:16) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgxD4IGlIGo

OH MY GOD (0:30) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTzkEQeNeT8

Meanwhile, this was MY reaction:

DAMMIT. I literally lost my cool by second 23 WTH! It just takes a few old snaps in black and white with this kiddo that is no longer in the band and feelings start to implode. And then second 24 happens and Niall steals my heart (once again) with his baby-face, new dork-style and sweet voice. Chorus is on at 41´ and fans start running, screaming and crying on screen. I’m almost crying in front of the screen but I said no over-fangirling here so I hold my tears (lol) but theeen 2:11 and they’re pulling out their best dance moves! Fuck it, I can’t stand it. It’s on. Just look at them and come on, their outfits! So hipster-ish: fedoras, boots, a stripped sweater and Harry’s long hair. It’s too much to resist. This is totally a bromance hymn. A boyband-love song.

You gotta help me, I’m losing my mind
Keep getting the feeling you wanna leave this all behind
Thought we were going strong
I thought we were holding on
Aren’t we?

No, they don’t teach you this in school
Now my heart’s breaking and I don’t know what to do
Thought we were going strong
Thought we were holding on
Aren’t we?

You and me got a whole lot of history
We could be the greatest team that the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don’t let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever

All of the rumors, all of the fights
But we always find a way to make it out alive
Thought we were going strong
Thought we were holding on
Aren’t we?

(…)

Mini bars, expensive cars, hotel rooms, and new tattoos
And the good champagne, and private planes, but they don’t mean anything
‘Cause the truth is out, I realize that without you here life is just a lie
This is not the end
This is not the end
We can make it, you know it, you know
