Background and reception:
"Ooh Ahh" was written by Christopher Lee-Joe, Philippe-Marc Anquetil, Tamara Jaber and M. Carre. The song's lyrics are based on childish chants popularised in playgrounds, including "Ooh, ahh, I lost my bra / I left it in my boyfriend's car" and "Boys are rotten, made out of cotton / Girls are sexy, made out of Pepsi". "Ooh Ahh" was released as a CD single on 19 April 2005. It features the instrumental, acappella and 7 inch mix versions of "Ooh Ahh" alongside the original version. Upon its release, the song debuted and peaked at number 13 on the ARIA Singles Chart and number 1 on the ARIA Dance Singles Chart.
In 2009, a readers' poll published in the Herald Sun declared "Ooh Ahh" to be the worst Australian song of all time. The article went on to accuse Jaber's then-partner Kyle Sandilands of nepotism for releasing it on his newly formed label King Kyle Records, adding that his radio station 2Day FM was the only one that played the track.
