Another powerful bass b-side.


Easily is the B-side to Starlight. It surfaced August ~10th as a ~20 second clip from a person known as Mr X, the file was tagged as "easily_forgotten". On the 15th, another file surfaced on Muselive.com, protected by a code which was left for people to solve. This was eventually solved, revealing a 30 second clip along with another message within a plain text file informing that "Mr. X" will be back the following week. In an AIM chat using qua@aol.com, Matt was asked who "Mr. X was", and replied it was someone from the record company.[1]

The song was leaked onto YouTube the day before the release date. The song's lyrics seem to describe a near-perfect sexual experience that cannot be forgotten.


Oh ...

Let your inhibitions go Make every touch electrical When you're feeling beautiful Will you remember me?

I want to touch you deep inside And find the secrets that you hide When your fears are cast aside Will you remember me?

Easily forgotten love Easily forgotten love It's not so easily

I just want to let you know My mind refuses to let you go I wanna hypnotise you so You will remember me

Easily forgotten love Easily forgotten love It's not so easily

Easily forgotten love Easily forgotten love Easily the best I ever had Easily the best I ever had

Go back to Starlight
