Never Mortgage Another

I have never had another job and I don't have a mortgage.

- Alison Moyet

Human Being Give Rather

I wasn't good at being affable. You get beyond that and realise the attraction in any human being has more to do with what they give to someone rather than just being face candy.

- Alison Moyet

Point Becoming Got

Becoming famous is a really shocking thing, especially when you don't have aspirations to it. It got to the point where I would try and avoid making eye contact with anyone. It was freaky, and it just happened overnight. I couldn't handle it.

Love Always Been

There has always been a feeling with people that they love my singing but not always the choice of material.

Artist See Lot

There are a lot of people who can now see me as an artist for the first time.

Voice Been Constant

I just think that when you've been singing for 30 years, which I have been, you just want to find different things you can do with your voice. It's a constant journey. It's not like any one album that you make is who you are. It just reflects that particular day.

- Alison Moyet

Smile Out Maiden

I have always loved a hard-faced girl. I get that Alison Goldfrapp isn't easy, and I like her belligerence. She's deeply sexy and controlled, like a Strict Machine, and it seems to wind the b'jesus out of the women I know. On the outside, I watch and smile and will her on like a twisted silent maiden aunt in the dark corner.

- Alison Moyet

Doing Taste About

I'm a bit multifaceted in the sense that I've got many more than one musical taste. If you think about it, I started out playing in a punk band and ended up doing electro-pop. That was more an accident than a plan.

- Alison Moyet

Want Evolve Lot

When you make a lot of money for a record company, they don't want you to evolve. Growing older, you naturally do.

- Alison Moyet

Death Start Pace

Instead of thinking that's a nice tune, you start thinking is it the right pace, is it the right tempo? That is the death nell for artists.

- Alison Moyet

Training Other Bands

I have never done any other job. I have sung in bands since I was 15. I left school completely unqualified. I have no other training.

- Alison Moyet

Woman Feel Remains

I just find P.J. Harvey so mesmerising to watch because she remains unfathomable. She is the kind of woman who makes you rue the day you weren't born her. She always seems to be the cat that walks alone, and you don't feel you are supposed to know her.

- Alison Moyet

Myself Level Applied

I have never truly applied myself. Lots of things have come too easily to me and at too high a level.

- Alison Moyet

Woman My Life Big

I have lost and put on big batches of weight in my life many, many times. But what concerns me is the idea of being an obese old woman, because I don't like the idea of being physically incapable in someone else's hands.

- Alison Moyet

Voice Were Receiving

The press Yazoo were receiving were focused on the voice, This obviously was about trends.

- Alison Moyet

Voice Could Created

The press gave me a voice too quickly, and that could have unsettled a man who had every right to feel he should be in control of the thing he had created.

- Alison Moyet

Luck Good Luck Afterwards

It wasn't like I felt I was on a wave. It was just so easy. It is only afterwards that I thought I really had a bit of good luck going on there with Yazoo.

- Alison Moyet

Again Sure Could

It is not about writing those hits again. I am sure I could write them, but it is about the sensibilities.

- Alison Moyet

Writing My Time Occupying

I was writing and I have three kids. I was occupying my time with them but it was difficult.

- Alison Moyet

Tone Big Been

Of all the soul divas, Gladys Knight was the one for me. Knight's always been about tone and heart, none of the big showboating or extraneous doodling. She nailed a melody and only played a little around the edges like Ma Staple.
