"Oh My Goodness" is a song by English singer-songwriter Olly Murs, from his second studio album, In Case You Didn't Know (2011). Written by Murs, Adam Argyle and Martin Brammer, it was released as the album's third and final single on 1 April 2012 and became Murs's sixth UK top-20 hit, reaching a peak of number 13.
Murs wrote the song with Argyle and Brammer after being inspired by seeing an attractive girl whilst on a lunch break from recording sessions for the In Case You Didn't Know album in summer 2011, and the song tells the story of a man who falls in love with a girl at first sight, and that his lack of rationale does not matter to him as he is "dreaming of a life that anybody else would die for". In an interview with Channel 4 music show Freshly Squeezed, Murs added: 'It's kind of about love at first sight, really. That moment when you see a really attractive girl, and the video reflects that with the storyline.' A short instrumental of the song's chorus acts as the theme tune to his ITV2 documentary series Olly: Life on Murs.
The music video for "Oh My Goodness" was teased with a short 30 second clip on VEVO a week before its premiere, and was first released onto YouTube and VEVO on 24 February 2012 at a total length of three minutes and eleven seconds. The video was shot in the new Westfield Stratford City shopping complex in east London in January 2012, and was directed by Marcus Lundin (who also directed the video for Murs' previous single, "Dance With Me Tonight"). In the video whilst going up an escalator with friends, Murs sees an attractive girl on the escalator going in the opposite direction. Instantly attracted to her, Murs, unknown to her, gives chase after her through the shopping centre - tearing through shop displays, knocking over waiters and using a segway before finally catching up with her at the video's end.
The single was met with mostly positive reviews from critics upon its release. Lewis Corner, writing for Digital Spy, awarded it four out of five, and praised the song as an "ear-grabbing tune" with "a dashing brass section and toe-tapping guitar riff so colourful and suave that even a Disney Prince Charming would struggle to compete with". Melisa Greenfield, writing for Stereoboard.com, also noted the positive, upbeat vibe of the song, saying: "This song is incredible and will put a smile on even the grumpiest faces – even if it’s just because they’re smiling at the dancing of those around them because, let’s face it, this song does make you want to dance."
