Savan Kotecha\'s written approximately a gazillion amazing pop tunes in his time. One of said pop tunes is One Direction\'s \'What Makes You Beautiful;\' which he\'s essentially admitted he wrote while he was \'literally taking a shit.\' Goals.
Yup - almost five years on 1D\'s old pal\'s been chatting all about the fetus days, explaining exactly how he came up with the proper pop bop that is WMYB and revealing that \'One Thing\' was originally two totally different songs. Oh, it\'s all VERY INTERESTING INDEED.
Asked by Popjustice if he felt he\'d properly nailed it with \'What Makes You Beautiful,\' Savan said: "I didn\'t think we\'d nailed that to be honest. I\'ve had artists come up to me and say \'dude, \'What Make You Beautiful\' is the perfect song\'. I knew that the math was right, but I guess when it\'s all together and the voices are on it and it\'s mixed it worked out. I still have the demo with my vocals on it. At the last second I changed a couple of lines, like the \'flip your hair, get you overwhelmed\' bit wasn\'t there. That was a juicy line."
Yapping on about the whole process, Savan continued: "Well we\'re eating, but I\'m just going to say it anyway, I was literally taking a shit at the Royal Garden hotel in London. My wife was on the other side of the wall and she was having one of those \'I feel so ugly\' days. I shouted \'you\'re not\' and in my mind I was thinking \'wow, that\'s one of the great things about you is that you don\'t know how beautiful you are and that\'s what makes you beautiful\'. I literally wrote down the phrase and then I went to the studio with Rami [Yacoub] and Carl [Falk]. I had the melody of "baby you light up my world like nobody else" in my head and then everything connected."
Oh ALSO Savan revealed that \'One Thing\' was actually two totally different songs before they decided to properly piece it together. He said: "[It]was two separate songs literally until the day they cut it. It was a chorus of one song and the verse from another and we couldn\'t get either right. Sometimes it\'s about not having pressure either, to allow those moments. That\'s why we don\'t have people in our studio building apart from the artist and maybe a couple of A&R people."
Chatting about 1D\'s evolution, Savan added: "One Direction changed a lot for me. Suddenly I had all these people I wanted to meet with and financially I was doing well, but One Direction was really my thing [he co-wrote sixteen of their songs across the first three albums]. People kept coming to me with boybands and I made a conscious decision to try and do something different. I made a couple of mistakes that Americans make where you have success and people throw things at you and so I\'ve learned a lesson where I used to do things because I could and not because I should."
