Who better to write songs for One Direction than the members of one of the most popular boy bands of all time, right? That's what Jackie Jackson thinks, too.

Michael Jackson's brother and the Jackson 5 member told the Daily Star that he sees himself and his brothers in the U.K. sensations. They even inspired him to write some tracks for 1D. "Those boys remind me of ourselves so much when we were younger. I got some songs for them to record too so we'll be in touch [with them] real soon."

Whaddya say, 1D? These guys might know a thing or two about a hit record. May we even suggest taking this one step further: The remaining members of the Jackson 5 appear in the new One Direction video? And then a Michael Jackson hologram shows up? No? Too far?
