Calling it now.

ETA - yep, definitely 6* here. While it's certainly "What Makes You Beautiful" 2.0, it's just as strong and it's definitely going to be huge. In love.

A bit boring now. Way to over hyped.

Great, catchy, instant and probably a massive hit with a fun video which will appeal to their fanbase. 4th UK top 10. 25 weeks in the UK top 100. Their second Irish #1. UK#3 and Ireland#1. US#3. 336,500 copies sold in the UK.

Such a shame this isn't about taking drugs, that would have been genius.
Anyway, I can't say I like this very much and the fact that it's another rehash of their most famous song doesn't help really. I'll give it 3* although it will probably annoy me when it becomes a hit.
****
Sorry, some website jipped me into thinking I was listening to this song when it was actually something else entirely.

Quite catchy I must say, but I do not like it as much as some of their other songs.
******
Wieder ein toller und starker song der engländer...wird dort sicherlich ein grosser hit!!! Hierzulande glaube ich nicht...aber ich fänds trotzdm geiil!


Klare 6*
**
This is such a disappointment. All the hype for nothing. It's a clone of What Makes You Beautiful. Boring song 'message' that's all but been done before, and the words don't flow well like WMYB's did.
***
It's alright, but nothing special - fairly dissappointing. 3.5*
*
Very generic, sounds sort of desperate. I watched this right before listening to it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijr4rwb2WbE

AMAZING!!! Can't get enough of it. They just keep getting better and better!

not bad... but irrelevant

The clip looks like a whole heap of fun but this is nothing new really and I do think it's quite disappointing.

@Hijinx - what is this classic song entitled 'Starships' lol.

Recalling guitar riffs that remind me of the classics like "Should I Stay or Should I Go", "Old Time Rock & Roll", and "Starships". But I dunno, I echo the sentiment that this doesn't sound outwardly developed from their previous hits, and things like 'Crazy, crazy, crazy' just bug me. 2.8
****
Just barely above average.
******
Another great song from 1D, very catchy but it took me longer to get into it; I was instantly hooked when I first heard "What Makes You Beautiful" and "One Thing". I can understand why some people wouldn't like it since i guess you could say its an updated version of WMYB, but "Live While We're Young" is still a great song regardless. Hope it does well on the charts worldwide :)
**
It's easy to say in hindsight but I'm glad this is flopping. The public won't keep accepting the same spoon-fed slop.
*
One Direction have released generic songs up to this point, but this is by far the worst. I can identify about a million other shitty pop songs in here. Not only is it tripe, but the lyrics are terrible, and extremely agist. And of course, the band didn't write it.
***
Pretty average song.
****
ihr einziges gutes lied...
*
The only decent thing that 'Gangnam Style' did was keep this horrible thing from debuting at #1 here in Australia.
I was starting to enjoy the image and style 1D was portraying up until this point, guess I was fooled for awhile but in reality they are just following the same footpath as the many other manufactured boy bands which have that hit'n'miss tendancy!
Sex and coolness are all the rage and this song in general generally identifies what is wrong with the young ones in general, shame!
***
I rate this below What Makes You Beautiful, One Thing and More Than This. The best I have heard from their recent album but still a very overhyped song. Even if it is better than the song that was number one the week they debuted at #2 I'm glad it didn't get there and I'm glad that they will most likely never get a #1 on our charts

Tough to rate this, because despite being a carbon copy of What Makes You Beautiful, this is still a lot of fun. I think the production is better here than in What Makes You Beautiful, but due to the similar nature of both songs Live While We're Young suffers dramatically. This is tied with Little Things in quality, but is still a drastic step down from One Thing or Kiss You.

I cannot tolerate this song. I don't hate 1D as much as others do but this is just a big no.
