One Direction’s New Song “Perfect” Sounds Exactly Like A T. Swift Ditty [LISTEN]

We’re less than a month away from the release One Direction’s fifth albumMade In The AM, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be mad about getting another single early. 1D surprised us with “Perfect,” which we’ve only played approximately 11 times in the past hour. Listen to the new track below.

However, we noticed around the second listen that “Perfect” sounds remarkably similar to Taylor Swift‘s song “Style.” And we weren’t the only ones who thought so. One Twitter user even played the songs over each other, and they’re barely distinguishable. Not in a “oh they kind of maybe could be alike” way. They’re literally the same.

For reference, here’s the full T. Swift track.

Here’s the kicker: Harry Styles allegedly wrote this song about Taylor Swift. The lyric “And if you’re looking for someone to write your breakup songs about, Baby, I’m perfect” does raise eyebrows.

I still maintain that Haylor was a total publicity stunt (what kind of international celebrities would go on a date in a public place like Central Park unless you want cameras to find you?), but you can’t reason with fan girls.

Lyrics:

[Louis Tomlinson]

I might never be your knight in shining armor / I might never be the one you take home to mother / And I might never be the one who brings you flowers / But I can be the one, be the one tonight.

[Liam Payne]

When I first saw you / From across the room / I could tell that you were curious (Oh, yeah) / Girl, I hope you’re sure / What you’re looking for / ‘Cause I’m not good at making promises.

[Harry Styles]

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms / And if you like having secret little rendezvous / If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do / Baby, I’m perfect / Baby, I’m perfect for you.

[All]

And if you like midnight driving with the windows down / And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce / If you like to do whatever you’ve been dreaming about / Baby, you’re perfect / Baby, you’re perfect / So let’s start right now.

[Niall Horan]

I might never be the hand you put your heart in / Or the arms that hold you any time you want them / But that don’t mean that we can’t live here in the moment / ‘Cause I can be the one you love from time to time.

[Liam Payne]

When I first saw you / From across the room / I could tell that you were curious (Oh, yeah) / Girl, I hope you’re sure / What you’re looking for / ‘Cause I’m not good at making promises.

[Harry Styles]

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms / And if you like having secret little rendezvous / If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do / Baby, I’m perfect / Baby, I’m perfect for you.

[All]

And if you like midnight driving with the windows down / And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce / If you like to do whatever you’ve been dreaming about / Baby, you’re perfect / Baby, you’re perfect / So let’s start right now.

[Niall Horan]

And if you like cameras flashing every time we go out / (Oh, yeah) / And if you’re looking for someone to write your breakup songs about / Baby, I’m perfect / Baby, we’re perfect.

[Harry Styles]

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms / And if you like having secret little rendezvous / If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do / Baby, I’m perfect / Baby, I’m perfect for you.

[All]

And if you like midnight driving with the windows down / And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce / If you like to do whatever you’ve been dreaming about / Baby, you’re perfect / Baby, you’re perfect / So let’s start right now.
