This somber album closer is Peter Doherty's lament for his late friend Alan Wass. The 33-year-old musician died in hospital of a heart attack two months after severing an artery in his arm when he fell through a window at his home. The guitarist was one of Doherty's closest friends and had played with The Libertines, as well as fronting his own band The Lipstick Melodies.
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
Will.I.am, literally dreamt up "I Gotta Feelin'." Said the Black Eyed Pea: "Have you ever had a dream where there's a melody in your dream? I'll wake up out of my sleep and record that! 'I Gotta Feelin' was one of those songs."
