"Forget Myself" is Elbow's first single from the album Leaders of the Free World, released in three formats: two CD singles and one 7" vinyl. One of the CDs was a Maxi-CD Single released on an Enhanced CD. The song itself has a technical-like sound as well as usage of doubletracking in the vocals.

"Strangeways to Holcombe Hill in 4.20" is an instrumental, reminiscent of several James Bond theme songs. "My Finger" is an Indigo Jones cover, a fellow-Manchester band. "The Good Day" is an atypically glam rock-style track, as well as "McGreggor" were added to the Japanese version of Leaders of the Free World as bonus tracks.

The song was debuted live, originally entitled "Buddha With Mace", at Blueprint Studios in Salford in May 2005, at a one off gig as part of the Carling 24 Festival.
