“What was your dream job when you were a child?”

Dido’s just emailed us her latest answers to the questions which you’ve been sending in to us at [email protected] (keep ’em coming!). Here they are…

How do you pick your setlists?
Emma xx
Dido replies: I definitely think pretty carefully about taking the audience on a journey as I would when choosing the order of an album. I pick the songs that are the most fun to do live and then create highs and lows and quiet moments and jumping around moments. The lighting is also really satisfying to work on as it’s something I really enjoy when I go to a show myself – when I feel like I can see the music.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever made yourself (other than music)?
Fiona, Kent
Dido replies: A painted lampshade. My proudest art moment… 🙂

Do you like the cinema? If your answer is yes (like I think) what is the last movie did you see? And what is your favorite movie?
Natalia, Argentina
Dido replies: The last movie I saw was on a plane last week and it was called Elegy. It was good actually. It’s hard to pick my favourite movie. But a few highlights of my life were seeing the Godfather movies, Star Wars (I wanted to watch them every weekend), Shawshank Redemption, Goodfellas, most Pedro Almodóvar movies, Midnight Cowboy, the Graduate, ET (I went to see it for my birthday when I was about 10 and it was the first movie that made me cry). The next movie that made me cry uncontrollably was Gone With The Wind. Jaws was another favourite. I didn’t go in the sea for about 2 years after seeing that.

What was your dream job when you were a child? A singer?
Lu Yunhe,China
Dido replies: A tennis player. Completely unrealistic, but I was just obsessed with it.
