In this song, Dido sings of "gently drifting" while her contemporaries move on with their lives. However the single singer-songwriter insisted to the Daily Mail November 21, 2008 that this tune is not autobiographical. She said: "I'm not putting my life down in a diary." Dido added that if you try to analyze her by listening to Safe Trip Home, "you'll get in a right old mess. My songs don't work like that."
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
