"What a Feeling" is a song recorded by English-Irish boy band One Direction for their fifth studio album, Made in the A.M. (2015). It was written and produced by Jamie Scott and co-written by Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Daniel Bryer and Mike Needle. The song was released as the album's second promotional single on iTunes Store and Spotify on 11 November 2015.[1][2] The song, along with the rest of Made in the A.M., leaked on the internet after a mishap in security during a listening party.[citation needed]


While writing for Billboard, Erin Strecker described the song as having "a sweetly thumping bass line and light harmonies," and added, "the tune would feel perfectly at home in the easy, breezy '70s."[2] In Rolling Stone's special Reader's Poll, "What a Feeling" topped #1 as one of the best songs One Direction ever released.[3]
