Simone

Album: Tales Of Us (2013)
  • Alison Goldfrapp explained during a performance at New York City's Beacon Theatre that this song concerns a "wicked" daughter who beds her mother's lover. "These things happen, but only in England," she joked.
  • The song is from Goldfrapp's sixth album, Tales Of Us. Goldfrapp used the inclusive pronoun in the title because the record is all about Alison Goldfrapp and her musical partner, Will Gregory's emotional response to the uniquely affecting tales contained in the ten tracks.
