"Ooh La La" is a 1973 song by the band Faces, written by Ronnie Lane and Ronnie Wood. It was the title song for the band's last studio album, titled Ooh La La.
The lead vocals were provided by Wood, a rarity in the band's catalog as lead vocals were usually performed by Rod Stewart and less often by Ronnie Lane. Stewart and Lane both recorded lead vocals for the song but neither were reportedly satisfied by their attempts. Their producer Glyn Johns then suggested that Wood give it a try, and this version was used for the track on the album.
Lane soon recorded his own version after leaving the Faces in 1973 with his new group Slim Chance, featuring lyrics slightly altered from those he wrote for the Faces. Although Lane's studio version was never released during his lifetime, it appeared as the title track of the 2014 Slim Chance compilation Ooh La La: An Island Harvest. Lane did however regularly perform the song at concerts and on radio shows throughout his solo career, until he retired from the music business due to bad health in 1993.
Wood also performed the song in his solo concerts from 1987 to 2012.
