    General CommentIf I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life, it would be this. It is so important to me, and there's no other song that can stir up such emotion, flood my mind with feeling or take me back to times and places. There's actually a little anxiety when I choose to play this track because I know just how much it's going to shake me up, and it frightens me. This song resonates with me personally, for reasons I won't go into, but let's just say that to me this song is equal with one thing: hope.

    General Commentone of my current favorite instrumental songs. clearly the best off mr. beast. i love the energetic yet somewhat downcast feeling this song has. mogwai is brilliant.

    General Commentjust saw mogwai live. this song may have been the greatest experience of my life. i mean, i was expecting it to be one of the better live songs, but it seriously moved me to tears. everyone in the world needs this album. best since "young team," and honestly, it might be surpassing it in my mind the more i listen to it. man. every song on mr. beast is a pure work of insanely amazing unique art. "friend of the night" is definitely my favourite track.

    General CommentThis is also my fav off Mr. Beast
    I'd also have to say YES they are amazing live. I've seen them maybe 6 times now, and they have gotten shit tons better with their live sets. They play almost excactly what you want to here on that specific night, or it feels that way.

    General CommentI've never seen them live, and I probably will never, which is a shame, really, 'cause everybody I know says Mogwai is more of a live band than an album band.

    General CommentI saw Mogwai back in May or so of 2006. Nearly a year later, my memories are still so very vivid of them playing this song, with the laser show, and their green running suits with matching green shoes - the entire audience swaying to the melody - awesome.
