My prefix says it's only a letter,
my infix with mas, gravel travelling,
my primefixes crushed orange into green,
I'll see it through, to make it get better.

  • $\begingroup$ The infix is fine, but I missed a letter in line 2 and not sure how to fix. Will leave and add bounty for correct ans or a fix for line 2. $\endgroup$ – Tom Apr 25 at 8:38
  • $\begingroup$ Weirdly, I think I know the answer but cannot fit the second line. $\endgroup$ – hexomino Apr 25 at 9:55
  • $\begingroup$ @hexomino, I will accept without line 2 explanation. I made a change to it just before posting as I thought saw a nice fit, but my spelling of a word which has over two trillion hits in google was incorrect. There is some switching and double-duty going on I think, and I omitted a word which would have made this line easier. $\endgroup$ – Tom Apr 25 at 10:00

Okay, so I think the answer is

D:Ream

Title

D is the Roman numeral for 500 and a ream is 500 sheets of paper so the answer could be read as 500:500 - a fair split of a grand (1000)

My prefix says it's only a letter,

Dre - possibly a reference to Dr. Dre who has a song title "Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang".

my infix with mas, gravel travelling,

Rea - I think this refers to Chris Rea ("mas" indicating Chris(t)mas) who is quintessentially "gravel-voiced". He also has the popular song "Driving Home for Christmas".

my primefixes crushed orange into green,

If we take the 2nd, 3rd and 5th letters we get R.E.M. who had a song "Orange Crush" on the album "Green"

I'll see it through, to make it get better.

These are hints to lyrics from the song "Things can only get better" by the band D:Ream.

    $\begingroup$ Wonderful,one of the infix's works is popular at that time - can't believe my spelling. $\endgroup$ – Tom Apr 25 at 10:38
