"So Easy" is a song by Norwegian duo Röyksopp, released as their first single. Originally it was released in 1999, with only 500 copies made and distributed. Later it was re-released on Röyksopp's debut album Melody A.M.. "So Easy" contains instrumental and vocal samples from a 1960s cover version of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David song "Blue on Blue" (wrongly "Who are You") recorded by a Swedish vocal group called Gals & Pals. (It had originally been recorded by Bobby Vinton). The sampled lyrics are: "Blue on blue, heartache on heartache/Blue on blue, Now that we are through." "So Easy" was used for a time on British television adverts for T-Mobile, as well as the displays between programs on Channel 4.

After "So Easy" was used in said T-Mobile ad in the UK, the single was re-released, with the groups hit "Remind Me" as the A-side and "So Easy" as the B-side.

It is featured on the album Songs to Make You Feel Good.
