BEST SONG EVER EVER EVER!!!… and the funnest video ever! Watch Below. One Direction recruited a hotel maid to add backing vocals to one of their new tracks. The ‘Best Song Ever’ boy band needed a female voice for one of their new songs, so singer Harry Styles convinced a worker at one of the hotels they were staying at as part of their Take Me Home Tour to participate.  “We needed a, you know, a groan on one of the songs. So I asked a lady at the hotel to record the ‘Urgghhhhh!’ “She was nervous at first but soon got into the swing of it.”They have been on the road since February and don’t have time to stop off at recording studios, sop have been laying down vocals in hotel rooms along the way.  Liam said: “We had a lot of fun doing it like that — just speakers, a mic…” Louis added: “We stuck the mattresses against the walls for the acoustics.” However, recording in this way has its down side and has led to a few unwanted interruptions.Harry added: “We’d be recording the best vocal ever - you’re thinking, ‘I’m really smashing this!’ - then there’d be a huge knock on the door and you’d get, ‘Room service!’ or ‘Housekeeping!’ We’d be, like, ‘Nooooo!’ and have to start again.”

Robin Thicke was bored with his “depressing bulls**t” music

Robin Thicke decided to make an upbeat album after becoming bored with his “depressing bulls**t” music.

The ‘Blurred Lines’ hitmaker has penned some cheerful tunes for his latest album of the same name after deciding people had heard enough miserable music. ”It’s a summer party album all the way and the most fun and happiest one I’ve ever made.

"I always wanted to be respected as an artist. As I got older, I didn’t want to hear my own depressing bulls**t any more, I just wanted to hear some fun music I could dance with my wife to."

Robin Thicke’s album Blurred Lines is out now
