One of the many quirks I have, and some of my friends can attest to this, is my weird taste in music (for a guy, I mean). Just how weird are my musical inclinations? For my third year high school research paper requirement I wrote about my favorite pop duo back then: Marit Larsen and Marion Raven, collectively known as M2M. I studied in Xavier, an all boy’s school, and most of my classmates were really bothered by the fact that I enjoyed listening to such girly music.
Eight years later (wow, it’s already been that long?) and I now find myself reminiscing about cheesy bubblegum pop music. However, instead of sharing a popular M2M song, which any Marit and Marion fan would feel nostalgic about, I’d like to share my favorite Marit Larsen music video. You see, after the awesome twosome parted ways, they pursued solo music careers. Marion stayed in America and released a rock album called Here I Am in 2006, followed by Set Me Free in 2007. She is currently working on her third album.
Meanwhile, Marit Larsen returned to Norway. She released her first solo album Under the Surface in 2006, followed by The Chase in 2008, and Spark in 2011. The reason why she hasn’t made it big in America or in the Philippines is probably because all three albums were only released in Norway and nearby countries like Sweden and Germany.
I personally prefer Marit’s sweet voice over Marion’s powerful one. Marit’s voice is so sweet you could turn diabetic while listening to her sing. Seriously! If you want an instant dose of happiness or inspiration, listen (and watch) the official music video of If a Song Could Get Me You by Marit Larsen. This is from her first solo album.
