Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Best Song Ever. By Songfacts®.

This Ed Drewett, Wayne Hector, John Ryan and Julian Bunetta penned song served as the lead single of One Direction's third studio album. It doubled up as a promotional single for the This Is Us 3D movie about the boys. The song was released July 22, 2013.

English singer-songwriter Ed Drewett has had success penning songs with artists such as The Wanted ("Glad You Came") and Olly Murs ("Dear Darlin'"), but this was this first tune for One Direction to get released. He told MTV News UK's Becca Dudley: "I met them a few times as soon as they came off The X Factor. We did a couple of sessions but nothing happened with the song." "This time, I was just drafted in by their record label," he added." I got on the whiskey and me and my friends just came up with this song, which then happened to become their first single [from their third album]. So fantastic news for me. So I got on the whiskey again. Just the one."

MTV News UK asked Drewett what makes the track the 'Best Song Ever,' He jokingly replied: "We weren't bragging when we wrote it. The song was about them singing the best song ever. It is the best song ever because I wrote it and they're singing it. So that's enough."
