Day 7 of My Week with Goldfrapp - Ooh La La

Day 7 of my week with Goldfrapp and today its 'Ooh La La'.

'Ohh la la' was released in 2005 as lead single from their album 'Supernature'. This was one of their biggest hits reaching number 4 in the UK singles chart, and also being a big dance hit.

This single is still electronic, but in a sort of homage to 70's rock it also features electric guitar - unusual for Goldfrappy. The result is a really catchy infectious number that stands out.

The video is very retro and 70's themed. From Alison's bell bottomed all in one, to the huge shoulder pads. Then the band who look more than a bit like they should be in a glam rock band and of course more than a nod to the great T-Rex. None less than the sparkly horse she rides in her white outfit. All platform heels and blue eyeshadow. Great video.

This is a sultry, sexy number with a real pulse. The lyrics are also very sexy "Switch me on, turn me up, I want to touch you, You're just made for love". The title "ooh la la" repeats sensually pulling you in with Alison's distinctive breathy vocals.

My last choice from Goldfrapp and we've gone out on a high. You can find days 1-6 over at My Music page here.

Now all that remains to do is to decide, of my seven song choices from this brilliant group, which is number 1? Pop back soon to find out! Happy listening :)
