Dido pens tracks for Britney: Could someone please show me the gateway to the parallel universe where this collaboration has a chance of being successful? Dido writes bland songs that highlight the wispy voice. Britney sings like a whiskey-laden duck-butt. Dido's music tends towards the "restrained" end of the spectrum, while Britney is most successful when she's completely over-the-top. Imagine Britney frog-marching through "Thank You" (the song with seven notes that still manages to be outside of dear Brit's range). If that doesn't send cold chills down your spine, I don't know will.
