For their fourth album 'Seventh Tree', lead single 'A&E' was apparently influenced by a hospital visit in which doctors pumped Alison full of painkillers. Which was nice.
Returning to their synth-pop roots for album number five, Goldfrapp's single 'Rocket' was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. However, it lost out to Rihanna's 'Only Girl (In The World)'. Fair enough really.
