XTC Stupidly Happy / Third Eye Blind Never Let You Go


I was listening to Third Eye Blind's song Never Let You Go, when I noticed that the melody was familiar and the opening almost identical to another song, XTC's Stupidly Happy.

This made me wonder which came first. I was able to find both were released as singles in 2000, and Never Let You Go was released as part of an Album in 1999. I wasn't able to find Stupidly Happy's initial release date.

The beginning of both songs and the melodies are so similar that I can't help but think that it's more than coincidence. Only the lyrics have been changed to protect the innocent.

Can anybody shed some light on this?
