The dancer is a man with short brown hair. He wears an unbuttoned dark brownish-red jacket, some sunglasses, a sky blue tank top with a goldish-white necklace, some back suspenders, a pair of dark blue jeans, and a pair of dark brownish-red shoes.
The background displays arrows that are going left to right, up and down, diagonally, spinning around the dancer, and lighting. The background also shows the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 during the line "one, two, three, four."
There are 2 Gold Moves in the routine, both of which are the same:
Both Gold Moves: Throw your right arm in front of your body and kick your left leg towards the screen.
One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks) is the first mashup to be featured in the Just Dance franchise. It blends the chorus from Blondie’s "One Way or Another" with that of The Undertones’ "Teenage Kicks".
After One Thing, One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks) is the second routine for a song by One Direction to not be a Dance Crew.
It is also their only track to be a Solo routine.
The Just Dance Now files for this song show a placeholder pictogram featuring two 8-bit characters with a pink helmet, a pink T-shirt, black pants, and black shoes.
This placeholder also appears in Man Down, as well as in many other sprites for Just Dance 2014 routines in the early Just Dance Now servers.
The early version of One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)’s sprite features four of them.
In older versions of the Just Dance Now pictogram sprite, there was an unused pictogram, whose arrow is shorter, slightly rotated, and placed more upward.
The menu icon has been updated since the routine’s release on Just Dance Unlimited; the glass effect was removed, the background was made clearer, and the purple line at the bottom was thickened.
