7th December 2001 - All I Want Is Not For Christmas

Dido wants to make it clear that her latest single, 'All I Want' is not a contender for the Christmas No.1 even though the B-side is called 'Christmas Day', she said she's not expecting it to beat the likes of Robbie Williams this year. The track was originally supposed to be a soppy one until her brother Rollo from Faithless got involved: "Basically I was in the middle of writing this really sweet song, you know, like 'Oh, you've gone away and it's all really tragic…blah, blah.' And Rollo came along and went 'No! No! That's boring, you got to make it that the guy has slept with someone on the one night he's gone away' so basically it gets really, really nasty by the end of the song. It's not Christmassy unless Christmas is quite a depressing time of year for everyone…nice!"

Name: Matthew Kik

How long have you been a Dido fan?: Err...I'm not!

What country are you from?: England!

How did you find out about my website?: I was there when you wrote it!

Will you be coming back to my website?: Most likely, you have some good ideas I want to steal!

Comments: Well this is indeed a thoroughly original site, not at all like your Pet Shop Boys site! Seriously though, it's a good site and Dido is much more attractive than Neil Tennent or Chris...err...Christ...from the Pet Shop Boys! Keep up the good work!
