"First of all, here's the tracklisting:01 White Flag (Radio Edit)
02 Stoned (Deep Dish Remix) (Radio Edit)
03 ParisI'm guessing that Arista must be encouraging illegal downloading after issuing this CD single. If you are a person who just listens to his/her music on a regular home stereo/CD player, then this CD will work just fine. However, if you are a person who wants to take these tracks in full digital quality and convert them to wav or mp3 files, then do NOT buy this! The CD will only play on the computer if you install a program which only allows you to listen to the songs in a poor 128 kbps bitrate protected Windows Media Audio file! Blah! I'm picky about sound quality, so I expected to be able to rip my own mp3's with this CD, just for 2 tracks: Stoned (Deep Dish Remix - Radio Edit) and Paris - both of which are unavailable on her album, 'Life For Rent.' That's the whole reason I bought the CD single. Now it's useless to me!!! I wanted to add the files to my iTunes playlist but can't now. My only choice is that horrible Windows Media file! When I try to play the songs on my iTunes player or on my computer, they skip horribly! Now I'm left to download these tracks illegally so I can play them on my iTunes playlist in my desired quality! Good thinking BMG/Arista! I won't be buying another one of your copy protected singles again. Instead, I'll save my time (and money) and look for them for free! Let's hope they don't start using this technology on their full CD albums or else I might be getting all my music for free now. Smart thinking Arista! With that said, it's good to see a CD single in stores. But at what cost? Your own personal freedom to rip and burn your own compilations and playlists."

"this single is so amazing!, starting with the Mexican Radio and TV #1 "White Flag" and the amazing Deep Dish Remix for "Stoned" (original version on the Album "Life for rent"), and the awsome b-side "Paris", that is very cool!, and bonus the fantastic video for "White flag" directed by Joseph Kanh, who is awsome director!!!. and well is very cheep. you have to buy it!!!!! is amazing and worth it!."
Get it for the 'Stoned' Remix

"The Deep Dish remix of "Stoned" ranked #2 on the Billboard Year-End Dance/Club chart for 2004. This amazing mix is probably one of the best mixes Deep Dish has ever put out. It has a great mix of a tribal beat, guitar and percussion, then breaks down at the end to just Dido's voice backed by an acoustic guitar.
I've never been a fan of Dido's regular releases (too "watered down") - I'm only a fan of her remixes. Trust me, this CD single worth the money just for the Deep Dish remix."
