Ooh La La (3:30)

Cover of Ooh La La

From Ooh La La and 22 other releases

“Ooh La La” is a Faces song, written by Ronnie Lane and Ronnie Wood. It was Ronnie Wood, not Rod Stewart or Ronnie Lane, who sang the lead vocal for this song. Lane and Stewart were at odds at the time. Stewart did not think the song was up to his standards although both he and Lane recorded lead vocals for it. Their producer suggested Wood give it a try, and that’s the version that was used for the album, which was Faces last studio album. Lane left the group after Ooh La La was released and Faces disbanded after their 1974 tour. Ironically, Stewart would cover the song many years later on his 1998 solo album When We Were the New Boys.

It is featured on the 1998 Rushmore film soundtrack, and is played over the film’s memorable final shot and closing credits.

The song was used in a 2005 Nike Golf commercial called “Kid Tiger” featuring a young Tiger Woods.

The song is also played during the opening and closing scenes of the wilderness comedy “Without A Paddle.”
