Ooh, Yes I Do is the ninth single by Dutch girl group Luv', released in the autumn of 1979 by CNR/Carrere Records. This song appears on the formation's third studio album True Luv'. It was a successful hit record in Benelux, Denmark as well as France and reached the Top 50 in Germany. The Spanish version of this pop track hit N°1 in Mexico.

Background[edit]

In the summer of 1979, Luv' and their producers and songwriters (Hans van Hemert and Piet Souer) decided to leave Philips/Phonogram Records (which had released the group's records for two years). José Hoebee, Patty Brard, Marga Scheide and their team signed a 750,000 Dutch Guilder contract with CNR affiliated to Carrere Records.[1] With this new deal, Luv's challenge was to prove that after one year and a half of mainstream success, the trio could still score hit records in the music charts. The formation's first single released by Carrere was Ooh, Yes I Do, a track composed and produced by Van Hemert. The song uses a melody inspired by the flute theme of ABBA's Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight). It became an instant hit. A Spanish version (entitled Si, Que Si) was recorded for the Latin American market and was a #1 single in Mexico where it reached the gold status.
