One Direction Goes '90s for Natalie Imbruglia's 'Torn' Cover

Aaand it's amazing.

Of all the songs One Direction could have chosen to cover, Natalie Imbruglia's (made famous by — sorry, Ednaswap) scorned-and-catchy '90s anthem "Torn" qualifies as both the least expected and the most fantastic.

The English-Irish boy band performed their own acoustic rendition of the '97 track for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, in addition to Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” and four original tunes of their own.

Again, though, truly: We imagine Natalie lying naked — and pretty cold and shamed — on the floor, listening to 1D's "Torn," contemplating her life.

We're not really seeing the holy light on "FourFiveSeconds," though. It hasn't crawled beneath our veins, and now...we don't care.

It's a little late.

One Direction's fifth album, Made In The A.M., releases Friday, November 13.
