Jeg husker når du gjorde "Sorry" live på Ole Bull i Bergen, det var helt utrolig fantastisk. Rørte meg langt inn i hjerterota :)

Hi Maria!

I'd love to help you out with that ;)

My ideal setlist would be:

Internal Dialogue

Self-fulfilling Prophecy

Our Battles of course, with the amazing guitar solo!

He's Hurting me

Cause and Effect

Sorry

Dear (you sang it once live on Norwegian radio!)

Belly Up

Eyesore

Your Glasses

You're the only one

Just Hold me

Not particularly in that order, but I love these songs live :)

Good luck with it,

Love, Noortje

One song I'd love to hear live most of all, and that is:

If you'll stay in my past.

If you only performed that one during the whole concert I'd still be happy.

Hi Maria!

My top 3 favourite songs are You're The Only One, All This Time and Nevermind Me.

Hope this helps you out!

Hi! I'm from South America, I hope I get to hear you live soon... but I guess that until that happens, YouTube will have to do!
My favourite songs are... all of them! But if I had to choose...:
I'm In Love ♥
Blame It On Me
Belly Up
Fragile (Free)
Just Hold Me
Sorry
My Lullaby
All This Time
Miss You Love
Self-fulfilling Prophecy
Eyesore
I have to stop myself, hahaha. You're amazing, I'm so glad I found your music. Thanks for making everyday better!

If you'll stay in my past could be a cool intro...

You never performed "Blame it on me" in Cologne...maybe you could add it again. Patience, Power Trip Ballad (I still miss the "Whoooopppaaa" part on CD), A few small bruises (!!!), Nevermind me (of course), sorry (with the great intro), ohhhh and "what's another day"! Ohhh and please add "Monday Morning" :-)

Tom

Mar 17, 2011 kl.12:48 PM

...and yeah "homeless" would be nice! yeah we need "homeless"...

Anja

Mar 17, 2011 kl.12:52 PM

My absolute favorite number is Dear. And of course Just hold me. I like to sing it as hard as I can.

Thanks for the beautiful music.

Thea

Mar 17, 2011 kl.1:11 PM

I miss hearing "What's Another Day", I guess that's my old favourite that I'm fond of.

I'd also like to hear "If You'll Stay in My Past", as Matthijs suggested.

other than that I love hearing "Internal Dialogue", "Monday Morning", "Power Trip Ballad", "Belly Up", "Sorry", "My Lullaby", "Cause and Effect" and "Eyesore". and if you plan on performing songs you haven't performed before, I really hope you'll consider including "Sleep to Dream". it was the very first song of yours that I would put on repeat and sing along to.

Maria!

1st of all , this is even hard for me, cause let's be honest:

I would love to hear them all live!

I think that previous singles should be performed so:

- My Lullaby (norway only, cause it is not that popular I think in other countries)

- You're The Only One

- Just A Little Bit (really want to hear this one live!!)

- Miss You Love

- Just Hold Me

- Nevermind Me

- Our Battles

- All This Time

- Belly Up

- I'm In Love

when it comes to albumtracks I really loved the live performances of the following songs:

- Where Were You

- He's Hurting Me

- Internal Dialogue

- What's Another Day

- Eyesore

- Your Glasses

- Blame It On Me

- Monday Morning

- Fragile

- Power Trip Ballad

- Cause and Effect

- A Few Small Bruises

Songs that I would love to hear live but never heard live are:

- Dear...

- Calm Under The Waves

- Lose Control

Hope this helps you a bit , I can only imagine how hard it is!

Difficult Maria... ;-) it must be hard to select the songs every time you go on tour.

I've tried to make a selection of songs which are the essential ones, the most popular songs. These includes Just Hold Me, All This Time, etc. To keep the show up tempo, I've chosen some of the rock songs. Then there are some 'slow' songs (such as Sorry, Dear) to give the people some time to take a deep breath. Those songs are mostly after the rock songs, to keep the show dynamic.

The encore... I like to see a cover and if I may decide what it would be, I would choose for It Must Have Been Love. Our Battles is the perfect last song with the guitar solo of Kjetil.

The list contains 16 songs, so there is some room for 2 - 3 songs of the new album.

So this is which songs I've selected:

=======================

The essentials (popular sing-along songs):

=======================

- Just Hold Me

- Miss You Love

- You're The Only One

- All This Time

- Belly Up

Total: 5

=======================

The rock songs:

=======================

- Our Battles (guitar solo Kjetil)

- Blame It On Me

- Your Glasses

Total: 8

=======================

The quiet songs

=======================

- Dear

- Sorry

- Calm Under The Waves

Total: 11

=======================

Cover

=======================

- It Must Have Been Love

Total: 12

=======================

And...

=======================

- Powertrip Ballad

- Eyesore

- Your Scaring Me

- Cause and Effect

Total: 16

#######################

And this is the setlist I've made. A good opening (makes people enthusiastic), some variety in songs... the band introducion and of the encore.

Mar 17, 2011 kl.3:28 PM

Hi Maria, I like to hear Pale People live, and Where Were You really should be on the setlist I believe. The song I also like to hear live is My Past. I suggest you play all the three parts in a row combined into one beautifull balled. I like this song so much that I recorded the three parts after each other on my minidisc and combined them into one song.

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy is also great to hear live. Five new songs will be a good idea i guess.

Cynthia Janes

Mar 17, 2011 kl.3:55 PM

my favourites live:

These Shoes (heard this one only live ONE on PinkPop 2007, I LOVE THIS ONE LIVE)

This Bottle Of Wine

He's Hurting Me

Our Battles

You're The Only One

Blame It On Me

Fragile

Lose Control (PLEASE?)

Sorry (<3 !!!)

Your Glasses

Cause & Effect

Eyesore

Self-fulfilling Prophecy

Power Trip Balad

jeg elsker deg :)

Michael

Mar 17, 2011 kl.9:17 PM

Well, as you may know, I love nearly all your songs ;-). But those are my biggest favourites:

- Nevermind me

- Just hold me

- Out battles

- Your glasses

- What´s another day

- Blame it on me

- Power trip ballad

- You are the only one

- Belly up

- Where were you

- Sorry

- This bottle of wine

- Just a little bit

- Cause and Effect

- Eyesore

And my really most liked one (not on the album, but played live):

- A few small bruises

Even I like your rock songs, I like those "warm and soul touching" songs. That´s what makes your live gigs very special. On the albums those songs (e.g. A few small bruises, Sorry) are just normal, beautiful songs. But when you play them live, they get a very special touch where your audience gets kind of a "everything is ok"-feeling. At least that is what they do to me ;-).

Mar 18, 2011 kl.12:47 AM

En coverlåt kanskje. En Oasislåt hadde vært tøft. Who Put The Weight Of The World On My Shoulders har litt Maria Mena over seg. Med strykere selvfølgelig :)

Suzan

Mar 18, 2011 kl.1:43 PM

Hello Maria,

I would love to hear the following songs:

- Where Were You

- What's Another Day

- Sorry

- My Lullaby

- Powertrip Ballad

- Nevermind Me

But I guess anything you sing would be great, it would still be beautiful even if you covered Kesha.

Linn Therese

Mar 18, 2011 kl.3:12 PM

"Sorry" og "Powertrip Ballad" <3

mariamenamusic

Mar 18, 2011 kl.4:22 PM

Sara Tustra: takk til alle!!! jeg setter stor pris på all hjelp!! klem M.

Florine

Mar 18, 2011 kl.9:00 PM

'When it rains' should not be forgotten!

Marloes

Mar 18, 2011 kl.10:20 PM

I would love to hear 'Where were you' live. Please come to Groningen in the Netherlands!! :)

Michelle S. Wirgenes

Mar 19, 2011 kl.12:15 PM

Så mange å velge mellom! Men live er Your Glasses litt magisk for meg. Lurer på om det var da jeg så den live første gang, at jeg ble skikkelig fan ;)

Ellers selvfølgelig:

-Powertrip Ballad

-Just Hold Me

-Cause and Effect

-I'm in Love Again

-Internal Dialogue

-Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

-Fragile

-This Bottle of Wine

Nb: Egentlig ikke så fan av coverlåter, men din versjon av "I was made (for loving you)" er rett og slett strålende og passer definitivt på konsert :)

Peter Jonker

Mar 20, 2011 kl.5:57 PM

-Just Hold Me

-Nevermind Me

-Power Trip Ballad

-Blame it on Me

-Our Battles

-Eyesore

-Belly Up

-Internal Dialogue

-All This Time

-Self Fulfilling Prophecy

Mar 20, 2011 kl.7:07 PM

Hi Maria,

A few songs that I would really like to hear you perform live are: Monday Morning, Patience, Dear and Sorry.

Love your music and can't wait for your new album!

Thea

Mar 20, 2011 kl.8:48 PM

oh my! I can't believe I forgot about "Patience"! I love the live versions I've heard of it. :)

Floris

Mar 23, 2011 kl.10:26 AM

"What's Another Day" is like one of my favourite songs, but I would also really love to hear "Calm Under the Waves".

Not too much chance for "Those Who Caved In" and "So Sweet" I guess, but those I would really love to hear you do as well :)

Can't wait for the new album!
