Having gone back and listened to 1D's discography a fair bit recently, I've managed to whittle everything down to a top 40 (as well as compiling a top 20 of solo songs between all five boys!)

Countdown starting soon! *.*

16 Harry Styles - Ever Since New York
17 ZAYN - Still Got Time
18 ZAYN & Zhavia Ward - A Whole New World
19 Louis Tomlinson - Two of Us
20 Liam Payne - Slow

Kicking off the top 20 solo songs we have a song from Liam's First Time EP. This is probably the only song that I'd go back to on the EP given the rest was pretty terrible (the title track featuring French Montana included). It's nice to hear a more pop-orientated Liam given most of his solo music to date has been a poor, cringe-worthy attempt at R&B.

At #19 we have the latest single to be released by Louis Tomlinson. I wasn't all that bothered by this to begin with, but given the circumstances around the time of its release, I started to listen to it more and you can really feel the emotion in the song making it probably one of his best to date. Hopefully there's more like this to come on his album.

Double trouble at #18 and #17 as Zayn features with both his and Zhavia Ward's soundtrack single for the live-action version of Aladdin, as well as standalone single Still Got Time. The former is a brilliant take on a classic Disney song and while it certainly isn't miles better than the original it puts up a good fight and Zayn and Zhavia's vocals work so well together. Still Got Time is a cute bop and I'm surprised it never made it onto Icarus Falls considering some of the songs that did (I'm looking at you Sour Diesel, Let Me, Entertainer, Too Much, etc).

Finally, finishing this set at #16 we have Ever Since New York, an album track taken from Harry's debut album. Besides Sign of the Times, this and Two Ghosts are probably the only songs that I'd go back to out of choice from the album, eek. This was such a treat to hear live too, and while it's nothing groundbreaking it's a lovely song that's certainly a contrast to most of Harry's other solo material.

11 Niall Horan - Slow Hands
12 ZAYN & Taylor Swift - I Don’t Wanna Live Forever
13 ZAYN - Good Years
14 Louis Tomlinson feat. Bebe Rexha & Digital Farm Animals - Back to You
15 ZAYN - Back to Life

In at #15 we have Back to Life, an album track from Zayn's second album Icarus Falls. On an album of 27 songs, it's difficult to narrow my favourites down to just a select few, but Back to Life is definitely one of the strongest offerings from the parts of the album that we hadn't already heard.

Next up we have Louis' highest placing song here (sorry hun) - his collaboration with Digital Farm Animals and international country sensation Bebe Rexha on Back to You! I don't think anybody would dispute that this is the best of what he's released so far. It's exactly the type of music I think Louis should be releasing so another bop that goes off like this would be very welcome.

*pretends to be shocked* we have another double Zayn feature here and this time it's an album track from Icarus Falls and his collaboration with Taylor Swift for the film Fifty Shades Darker. The former is a beautiful track and probably one of his best ballads. His vocals are insane and the lyrics hold such a powerful message. I Don't Wanna Live Forever, meanwhile, showcases just how fantastic Zayn can be, and both he and Taylor go perfectly together (both vocally and physically in the video). Another collab from them would be a dream.

Finally, just missing out on the top 10 we have Niall's single Slow Hands. I wasn't a massive fan of this to begin with, but over time it started to get my attention. It's still not the best Niall's done (spoiler alert), but anything's better than This Town at the end of the day.

09 Liam Payne & Rita Ora - For You
10 ZAYN - LIKE I WOULD

Kicking off the top 10 we have Zayn's single from Mind of Mine, LIKE I WOULD. This seems to get a bit of a bad rep nowadays, but I still absolutely LOVE it. Like much of what came out of the debut album, it still showcases a more pop-orientated side of Zayn and I think he managed to do it brilliantly! The video is fantastic too, so all the ingredients are there for something amazing. Shame the GP don't seem to agree. sad.gif #justice4zayn

At #9 we have another Fifty Shades collaboration, but this time for the third film Freed. Liam collaborated with Rita Ora and the end result was the absolutely incredible For You - definitely the best thing he's done to date I'm sure a lot of people will agree. While Liam wasn't present at my Glasgow date on Rita Ora's recent Phoenix Tour, the song went OFF and was an incredible way to open the show. Their vocals go great together and the video's another great one too!
