M2M (Nostalgia posts)

M2M was the name of a Norwegian pop music duo comprised of two teenage girls – Marion Raven and Marit Larsen – who had Atlantic Records and Warner Music as their labels. The duo produced 2 albums, Shades of Purple and The Big Room, and a “Greatest Hits” release (after M2M disbanded, under decision of their record label)

The girls had known each other since they were five, before forming the group in the mid-1990s. They debuted with their first single, “Don’t Say You Love Me,” in 1999. The song was featured on the soundtrack of Pokémon: The First Movie – Mewtwo Strikes Back. It was also the lead single off their debut album, Shades of Purple, released in 2000. They later released four more singles off the album: “Mirror Mirror,”“The Day You Went Away,”“Pretty Boy,” and “Everything You Do.” The album debuted at number 1 in Norway and several Asian countries and top 40 in most others. It also reached the number 1 position on the “Billboard Heatseakers” chart for developing artists. The album went on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide.

In 2002, the girls returned with a more mature, less pop-oriented sound, in their second album, The Big Room. In just two years, their voices had changed, especially Marion’s. Their first single off the album would be “Everything,” followed by,”What You Do About Me.”

The best of M2M

Shades of purple

The Big Room

They were my absolute favourite when I was 11 years old. I still know all the words to “Mirror Mirror.” Shades of Purple doesn’t have a track listing, so they’ll have to be tagged. The “Best Of” album is also incorrectly tagged, sigh. Best I could find! Anyways, enjoy.
