"Don't Say You Love Me" is the debut single by M2M, the Norwegian pop
duo of Marion Raven and Marit Larsen (pictured). The song first appeared
on Radio Disney before its official US radio and single release on 26
October 1999. It was included the following month on the soundtrack to
Pokémon: The First Movie, and appears in the film's closing credits.
The song was featured on M2M's debut album, Shades of Purple (2000), and
also appeared on their compilation album The Day You Went Away: The Best
of M2M (2003). Among the song's many positive reviews, Chuck Taylor from
Billboard said it was "absolutely enchanting" and would appeal to both
young and mature listeners. It reached number 2 in Norway, number 4 in
both Australia and New Zealand, number 16 in the UK and number 21 on the
US Billboard Hot 100. It was certified gold in the US and Australia and
remains M2M's biggest hit. They performed the song on episodes of the TV
series One World, Top of the Pops and Disney Channel in Concert. Two
similar music videos were released for the song, with one showing clips
from Pokémon: The First Movie.
