Dido wrote this song about how she does not always do the right thing. Some of the lines were taken from a postcard she wrote to her boyfriend, Bob. She asked for the postcard back so she could use it for the lyrics.
This was written 5 years before it was released while Dido was touring with her brother's band, Fearless. Most people didn't hear the song until 2001 - the album was out for almost 2 years before this became a hit.
Dido was a pretty big deal back in the day: No Angel was the world's top selling album in 2001 (8.6 million copies sold). It also became the UK's biggest-selling debut album by a female artist.
"I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me) " borrows four bars from Notorious B.I.G's "The World Is Filled." Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls attended Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York at the same time.
"Piano Man" was inspired by Billy Joel's time playing at a piano bar in Los Angeles. The "real estate novelist" was a guy who always talked about writing a book, but spent all his spare time in the bar.
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
