Me (mythology)

In Sumerian mythology, a me ( Sumerian, conventionally pronounced ) or ñe or parşu ( Akkadian, ) is one of the decrees of the gods foundational to those social institutions, religious practices, technologies, behaviors, mores, and human conditions that make civilization, as the Sumerians understood it, possible.

Me (Sandie Shaw album)

Me is the second album by 1960s British girl singer Sandie Shaw. It was released by Pye Records in November 1965, just eight months after her debut, but unfortunately did not follow its success - though her singles were still selling well. Since the release of the Sandie album, Shaw had gained another three UK Top 10 hits - " I'll Stop at Nothing," the Number One " Long Live Love" and " Message Understood," all of which had been written by Chris Andrews. As with the previous album, Me contained a mixture of Chris Andrews-penned material and cover versions of songs by other artists, as well as a track written by Shaw herself. However the balance of original and remade material was different this time - half of the twelve tracks were written by Andrews, as opposed to the third on the Sandie album, one track by Shaw, and five songs by other artists. Me was later re-issued as a package with Sandie on CD in the 1990s on the RPM label, and then again in digitally remastered format by EMI in 2005 with bonus French versions of "Down Dismal Ways" and "Too Bad You Don't Want Me."
