DON'T LEAVE HOME
Review from Ben from Geneva, Switzerland:
'Don't Leave Home' is a song Dido wrote about drug addiction. When
interviewed, she admitted that some friends of hers had suffered at the
hands of drug use. This song seems like a normal, very beautiful ballad
when taken at face value ("Cause if you're cold I'll keep you warm/And if
you're low just hold on/Cause I will be your safety/Oh, don't leave home"),
but was written from the point of view of an addictive drug.
This is one of the best songs on Dido's marvellous second album 'Life For
Rent'. It catches your attention straight away, and for those of you who
were disappointed with the single 'Life For Rent', this brings the
standard right back up to 'White Flag' level. It's currently starting to
play on the radio and the video (recently filmed in South Africa) is out
The edition announced at this time is a 2 track CD, the second being a
Deep Dish remix of 'Stoned'. This would be all very well if we hadn't
already had so many 'Stoned' remixes on the 'Life For Rent' single.
This song should be an instant success, it is beautiful.
