"Louise" is a song recorded by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler for her fifteenth studio album, Wings (2005). It was written by Tyler and Paul D. Fitzgerald, and produced by Jean Lacene (under the alias "John Stage"). The song was released as the lead single from Wings, first as a promotional single in 2005, and as an official single on 19 June 2006 by Stick Music. The lyrics depict Tyler pleading with another woman not to steal her lover.
The song was not a commercial success, but was the first single Tyler had self-written. She also recorded the song in French. A music video was recorded in Tunisia and released on the 2006 CD single.
A panther's walk – a panther's talk A million men – still buy it
— Lyrics omitted from the official version
"Louise" was written by Bonnie Tyler and French songwriter Paul D. Fitzgerald. Footage of Tyler composing the song with him was shot for a UK television program entitled "On Show", which included promotion for Tyler's latest album. When Tyler first heard the draft put together by Fitzgerald, she was impressed. "It's a really gorgeous song, it's really ballsy as well," Tyler remarked.
In the album CD sleeve, two lines from the first verse of "Louise" are written, though do not appear in the official version of the song. The extra material can be found online, however.
The music video was shot in MV Ydra (an old Greek shipwreck) on the coast of Tunisia close to the city of Bizerte and included shots of MV Tarpon Sentinel, another nearby Greek shipwreck. A short excerpt of Tyler filming inside the ship was released on her 2007 DVD, Bonnie on Tour. A makeup artist was hired for the video and visited Tyler in her hotel room at 5:30AM. She was ready for shooting two hours later, though disliked the job the artist had done and did it herself.
