Talk:The Second Longest Night

From This Might Be A Wiki


Is it just me, or is it incredibly strange that one of Lethem's other songs is called "The Moth of the Bee of the Birds"? Seriously, what is up? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:44, March 12, 2007

I saw that too. Also, this song has a different vibe (musically, I know the lyrics aren't by him) than most TMBG songs. I think I like it. (Kind of similar to Finished With Lies?) -J2 23:50, March 12, 2007
Yeah, I noticed that as well. The lyrics are very different from TMBG's song. I can't help wondering whose idea it was first, though. Spiraling Shape 14:43, 14 March 2007 (UTC)


If anyone has the time to transcribe this I would be really grateful. If I were skilled like that I would to it myself, but I'm at the mercy of the more musically-gifted right now.

Thanks to whoever helps me out! -Cronny

I'm not entirely sure what you're asking to be transcribed, but if you're looking for the "Moth of the Bee of the Bird" lyrics, they're at Lethem's website here, partway down the page. ~ magbatz 03:19, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm talking about filling in the Guitar Tabs page for this song. Did I use the wrong word? -Cronny
Magbatz thought you were continuing the above discussion, for whatever reason. I've separated the two discussions to remove confusion. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 00:33, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Where to find song[edit]

I hate to sound like a noob or idiot or anything, but could somebody let me know where I can obtain an mp3 of this song? I've tried to listen to it on Lethem's website and the flash player doesn't show up for me, and I have Flash Player 10. -Jeeb 16:06, July 1, 2009

The url that the flash player uses is
Hope that works --Duke33 20:13, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Can you put this link on the page? The page that is linked both on this page and the download page does not work. When you press play, it shows a different cover, "Moth of the Bird of the Bee." I wonder if this is a coincidence. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:42, January 6, 2011
If anyone is still looking for it, someone created a static YouTube video a few years ago with this song as audio. Watch it on Youtube.png --MisterMe (talk) 11:47, 9 July 2015 (EDT)
