Best Songs by Thin LizzyThe best songs by those legendary rockers Thin Lizzy fronted by the late and great Phil Lynott.
The Top Ten
A bit overrated - flynk7935
Dis song is a great soundtrack to just about any movie, however its very underrated
The best song ever love it thin lizzy is brilliant
One of the Best Guitar Riffs USA
Riff is nothing but epic!
Hell yes I love this song its fun to hear this play on the radio when playing Grand Theft Auto IV - christangrant
I love whiskey in the jar way more than jailbreak and the boys are back in town but it was there greatest hit to most people but whiskey in the jar is my number 1 definitely
Hahaha the boys are back in town's sucks
Whiskey in the jar is a demi god song to me
Really great song, really deserve on the top of the list
And hey where's bad reputation, I don't see it
I really love this song... Its to me their greatest hit of all time.
oh cmon man this IS the best, I love this song with my whole heart4 Comments
Best one. Boys are Back in Town is a embarrassing and a bad representation (reputation? ) of Thin Lizzy's material.
This is definitely my favorite, I'd want this to play if I was about to go into battle. But ok WHY ISN'T THE ROCKER ON THIS LIST? And for that matter does no one else remember Bad Reputation?
Great song! I can't believe it wasnt a hit. - fireinside96
Awesome song great drum beats from brian downey and even better guitar from scott Gorham and brian Robertson and phils lyrics are epic2 Comments
Not a nice sample to show this amazing song!
God that riff owns. The lyrics are brilliant as usual. This should be as well known as Boys are Back In Town.
Great rhythm and a poetic lyric. A song that touch your heart with the words but keeps you rocking with the music.
THE RIFF. That is all.1 Comment
The guitar tones are awesome
Along with Emerald and Dancing in the moonlight the best Thin Lizzy song, Since I've got just one vote I go with Alibi for the 3 guitars battle in the solo and outro sections
This song should be in top three or five it's really good
Really good song great guitar - mneilan1 Comment
My fave Lizzy song!
This was always a great live track and coming of that classic "Jailbreak" album.
Ugh! If you're not familiar with Lizzy then don't vote. That's the only possible way to explain The Boys Are Back In Town being at #1.
In my opinion, their greatest song...3 Comments
That solo though
Thin Lizzy rocks harder than any other band in this song! Why the hell isn't it higher?!
The Van Morrison influence stands out. Great song should be top 5.
Should be higher on the list
Listen to the Live and Dangerous version of that song. It's beautiful from the beginning to the end. "This sadness that never ceases. I'm still in love with you." The guitar solo at the end is the highlight
The second greatest Thin Lizzy song behind Boys are Back in town, surprised it wasn't on the list
Consistently underrated, like so many Thin Lizzy songs, awesome song, should be top 3.
Absolutely lovely song; my most favorite from Thin Lizzy, closely followed by Emerald.
This is one of the metal songs this band recorded and I like it very much. - Metal_Treasure
One of the best live song I ever heard the band perform.. just an awesome rock song
It's not just a song; it's a celebration of Irish music and literature. This is to rock as Vivaldi's Four Seasons is to classical music. Easily the best song written by Thin Lizzy, a beautiful song.
Anyone who voted Boys or Jailbreak is obviously not a Thin Lizzy fan.
' guitar god Scott Gorham! For me just the best song ever made by Thin Lizzy!
Most underrated Lizzy track
Thin Lizzy's metal record really kicks some ass!
The shred is real, best solo I have ever heard in my life. deserves to be top
Best guitar solo
Lyrically & musically magnificent!
Beautiful Song. I guess ranks do not always match personal opinion. - ZackStarsky
Great song - flynk7935
Best song ever
Best wah-wah since Hendrix
The riff on this track is fantastic
These are the best lizzy songs in no paticular order:
Don't believe a word- still in love with you- the sun goes down- the spirits slips away- wild one- emerald, holy war
Boys are back is the WORST lizzy song!
It's not their song by the way- Bob Seger wrote it - sweetbeef
How is this so low?!? It's one of my favourite Thin Lizzy songs. Come on people!
This is a truly brilliant song, it has no place being this low.
So powerful and evil. An unknown gem by Thin Lizzy. Watch it live and see the power and emotion Phil puts in and you will see how great this song is
This one might be as dark as it is power full With those riffs and lyrics worth putting a chill down your spine
A seriously great live song just made for the band.
Just listen to those guitar solos...
Wonderful tribute record.. Finised by Gary Moore et al, after Phil's passing!
Listen to this song and then tell me that it is not perfect. Great atmosphere, gorgeous solo, beautiful voice, the greatest "mellow" rock song of all time.
Amazing song - flynk7935
Catchy riffs, good lyrics
