Does taking an ironing board from a hotel count? I walked straight out with it, and pillows too. I had my reasons.

I used to shop in loads of Oxfam-type shops, but everything I bought was horrible. I don't think I'm very good at bargains.

Band Name Origins:

  • She was texting her friend about her weekend and accidentally misspelled "DILDO". Her friend said "Don't you mean 'FIDO'?...that's gross" She was drunk the night she texted, and her tea went cold the morning after when she was late for work again. After getting fired for being late, she went home to find out what she did the night before because she couldn't remember. She checked her sent messages on her phone and saw the word "DIDO" which she later used in pub gigs as her singing name although it was a personal joke. Submitted by: BXA
  • Dido is not her first name, it is the pet name that her family call her. Her name is Florian Cloud de Bounevialle Armstrong. Submitted by: Vicki

Stupid Band Names:

  • It sounds like a dinosaur! Submitted by: Princess Chic
  • I don't know why she took her name from women carved out of stone from Greek Mythology. I don't remember the exact story, but I don't think there was any significance. Submitted by: Billy Florio
  • Makes me think my band has a better name, because at least ours makes sense. The word 'Dido' means the same. That's kinda strange Submitted by: S.T.G.

Song Parody Fragments:

"White Flag"
Better Lyrics:
My linens were caked in some s***
Looks like they all went through a blender
There will be no white sheets across my bed
'Cause I didn't wash them with Cheer.
Original Lyrics:
Well, I will go down with this ship

And I won't put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag above my door

I'm in love and always will be.

"Thank You"
Better Lyrics:
My bums gone cold im wondering why
You pushed me out the bed
Was it cuz i farted and it
Smelt like rotten eggs
But i dont know why my ass is
Hanging out the bed
Cuz you pushed me and its not very nice
Its not very nice
Original Lyrics:
My tea's gone cold im wondering why
I got out of bed at all
Morning rain clouds up my window
I cant see at all
Even if i could it would all be grey
Put your picture on my wall
Then you call me and its not so bad
Its not so bad

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"White Flag"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I know I left too much mess and destruction to come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of 'it's over' then I'm sure that that makes sense
I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be
Why They're Insincere:
Can we say stalker? The first verse sounds like the story the lawyer helped her come up with for her restraining order court apperance in front of the judge. While the chorus is her true thoughts - she's never giving up on this man and he'll be hers forever.
