When One Direction’s song, titled “Drag Me Down,” comes on the radio, it’s the type of song that contains lyrics that moms in minivans to the pre-teens they’re hauling around can relate to. As such, it’s no wonder that the hashtag #DragMeDownDay is currently trending on Twitter. As reported by the Inquisitr, previously leaked videos of One Direction filming “Drag Me Down” at NASA already had the 1D fandom going crazy.
“All my life, you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights, they can’t blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down”
It’s a hopeful kind of song that almost perfectly displays what it’s like to feel beat down but to rise again like a Phoenix from the ashes. “Drag Me Down” debuted at the apropos time, when Zayn Malik left the group and posted a Twitter tweet — which some saw as a dig — about going on to make “real music.”
The One Direction “Drag Me Down” music video at NASA, reported E! Online, should be out of this world, using the space pun. Fans think the same as they tweet away their thoughts about making the song even more popular, and offer fan drawings of 1D band members.
One Direction fans used Twitter to upload video clips to the video section for the #DragMeDownMusicVideo hashtag. Those video clips displayed One Direction walking around a big hanger, filming “Drag Me Down” footage — others represented tweets from 1D fans telling each other where to find the band when they were in Houston filming the video.
Now, #DragMeDownDay is enjoying tweets coming in by the millisecond, with fans tweeting all kinds of things whilst waiting for the music video.
“I’ve got fire for a heart; I’m not scared of the dark
You’ve never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul and baby you’re a boat
Baby you’re my only reason”
“Drag Me Down” is the kind of song that’s universally relatable, and proves the grounded state of mind of the band members, especially with the line about lots of celebrity lights — be they via stage lights or photographer’s cameras — not being able to blind One Direction as to who is really in their corner.
When the “Drag Me Down” video does premiere, the fandom on Twitter will likely analyze every video frame.
