Max with Dido?
« on: March 20, 2007, 06:22:46 PM »
Maybe someone can answer this..

Does anyone know how the collaboration for "I'm not a girl, not yet a woman" happened?

Did Britney want to have a "girl" having input in the song and so asked Dido to write with Max, or was it Max's idea?

Who had the first idea, as this was the title track for the movie somehow, maybe the movie producers?

Anyone knows the story behind, and is it possible that Dido wrote more with Max?
And I liked it..

I have a very vague memory. It's on the MTV making of the video for I'm Not A Girl..  Britney does talk about the song being written, and she says something like Max needed help with the lyrics and so rang Dido up for help.

That's all I can remember, but I was also very curious about that and also wonder how he knew Dido to just ring her up. I don't have a copy of this MTV Making of the Video, but I bet it's on some bootlegs sold on Ebay.

Oh interesting. Thanks.
At that time Dido was very popular maybe she just sprang to his mind.
I wish they wrote more songs.  :wink:

Yeah, I was really surprised as well that Dido co-wrote that. Maybe songwriters all know each other, they must have been introduced at some point.

Oh and another one:

Shape of my heart (Max Martin, Rami, Lisa Miskovsky)

Drowning (Linda Thompson, Rami, Andreas Carlsson)

Anyone knows how this collaboration came togther?

Lisa Miskovsky is a Swedish singer and Linda Thompson an succesful songwriter and wife of David Foster, but they only wrote one song each with the Cheiron writers.

Do you think they had an idea and thought it might be appropriate for BSB and wanted the "usual stuff" have an input, or the Cheiron writers asked them if they might help with a song?
And I liked it..

Dido wrote on I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman? That's new to me.

Yes, she did, and Britney thanked Dido in the Thank You's for being part on the album. I have still no clue why she wrote with them :D

Basically she says Max called her in her hotel room and asked her for help with lyrics for “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman”. She never met him, but she says he was really nice. You can listen at the 35:10 mark in the interview.

Dido was WAY popular at the time -she was really good at the time- so it makes sense.

"Hey, this is Max, I love what you do, would you help me out with this song? I'm going to send it to you".

"Hey, this is Max, I love what you do, would you help me out with this song? I'm going to send it to you".

She said:

"I actually never met Max, actually. I was at an hotel somewhere and he called once, he said can you help us with this song with Britney, they sent me what they had ready and I think I just filled some gaps".
