Many 2 Mention


My first CD. bow.

Technically my first original CD was a -- Nursey Ryhmes. My dad bought it for me when I was on my third grade. While my brother was telling me to buy Steps album that that of Nursery Rhymes.

I was crazy about M2M when I was in Elementary. I relate to every song in their album. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, I envied Marit's red acoustic Gibson. My brother says M2M's chords are not that simple (is complex the right term here?) though.


Anyway, when I was in grade six I bought myself my very first CD . Oh yeah, the Norwegian pop duo - Marion Raven and Marit Larsen. M2M's Shades of Purple consist of 11 tracks:

  • "Don't Say You Love Me" – 3:46
  • "The Day You Went Away" – 3:43
  • "Girl in Your Dreams" – 3:31
  • "Mirror Mirror" – 3:21
  • "Pretty Boy" – 4:40
  • "Give a Little Love" – 3:59
  • "Everything You Do" – 4:02
  • "Don't Mess With My Love" – 3:44
  • "Dear Diary" – 3:58
  • "Do You Know What You Want" – 4:06
  • "Smiling Face" – 4:15
  • "Our Song" – 3:54
  • "Why" – 4:20



  • Summer time before I entered my High School as a freshman, I played my M2M on speakers aloud. My dad heard it. He reacted, "Ano ba 'yan, parang pusang ingaw na ingaw." From that day on, I stopped listening to them. I welcomed Limp Bizkit, KoRn, RATM, and LP wide arms open.

    Today, I still listen to M2M (and from time to time I do listen to that Nursery Ryhmes CD too!), especially when the power is out and the only thing I have is discman and AA batteries. I appreciate their songs entirely when its dark, really perfect when the power is down.

    Shades of Purple

    1. Don't Say You Love Me

    M2M's first single world-wide hit, included in Pokémon OST album.

    2. The Day You Went Away

    Hits #1 when I was in High School.

    3. Girl In Your Dreams

    4. Mirror Mirror

    5. Pretty Boy

    Whenever I hear this song, I remember a boy. Damn! Such a pretty boy. He used to be. He still is in my memory!

    6. Give a Little Love

    7. Everything You Do



    6. Don't Mess with My Love

    This song reminds me of my friend who had been with a boy who was into me before he was into her. A long story about my life a very long time ago.

    7. Dear Diary

    You're my secret hiding place,
    Where my private thoughts are safe.
    And just one look and he will see,
    What's inside of me.

    8. Do You Know What You Want

    9. Smiling Face

    :)

    10. Our Song

    "Our Song" uses the chorus of the Bee Gees' hit single "Too Much Heaven" as its own chorus.Wikipedia
