As we began our arrangement of One Direction's "Story of My Life" we wanted it to feel like each note of the music was a word in a vivid story being told. When writing a song sometimes you just need a little spark. That catalyst came from a piece of classical music -- one that had such a "storybook feel" to it that we gleaned inspiration from it: Saint-SaŽns' "Aquarium" from his Suite "Carnival of the Animals." It's an incredibly beautiful and transportive piece.
