Biography

Biography by Jason Ankeny
The electronic pop chanteuse Dido entered London's Guildhall School of Music at age six; by the time she reached her teens, the budding musician had already mastered piano, violin, and recorder. After touring with a British classical ensemble, she accepted a publishing job. Meanwhile, she sang with a series of local groups before joining the trip-hop outfit ...

Format: Audio CD
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 now too.
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.

Very poor single 7 May 2004
By asturiaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This UK release is very poor; it only includes two songs among which one is the album version and the other is an edit of 4 minutes:
- Don't Leave Home (3:51)
- Stoned (Deep Dish Stoner Remix Edit) (4:03).
Neither song is impressive and, enjoying the Deep Dish Remix of Thank You, I was expecting something great from the remix of Stoned. Instead, I got an edit of the Deep Dish Remix and a rather dull edit. As a result, this cd seems to me a useless purchase, all the more if you have the album.
I do not understand the marketing strategy of Arista/BMG UK. Why not adding the complete Deep Dish Remix to this cd-single or another song or remix? Even with the 20-minute limit on UK cd-singles, 12 minutes remains unused. Major companies have been complaining about people copying cds, but the only thing they will get by releasing such cds is a decrease in their sales and probably an increase in copied cds.
I cannot recommend this to anyone. If you still want to purchase this single, I would recommend buying one of the two other available releases since they both have the video which is not on the UK edition.
