BOW DOWN AT THE FEET OF SONGWRITER-TYPE SAVAN KOTECHA, EVERYBODY. Not only did he write One Direction classic 'Vas Happenin'?', but he's also the fella behind the boys' debut single 'What Makes You Beautiful.' And today, on the track's fifth birthday, he's revealed how Harry Styles reacted when he first heard it.

We all remember where we were when those initial 'dun-dundun-dundun' chords first blessed our earholes back in August 2012, right? Our initial reaction can only be likened to an excitable Golden Retriever puppy running around in a Santa hat barking incessantly at literally nothing.

Something like that, anyway.

Harry's reaction, though, was typically chill. Cool, calm and oh-so-collected. The most Harry Styles reaction of all time.

Celebrating #5YearsOfWMYB like everyone else on Twitter, Savan tweeted: "I still have the text H sent me that said "I think you really nailed it with this one"."

'I think you really nailed it with this one.' No exclamation mark. No emoji (it was kinda emoticon era, tbh.) No OMG. Just the most chill reaction to potentially the best song ever created. Amazing.

Oh actually yeah here's the proof and everything.

Crying.
