Best Songs by Thin Lizzy

The best songs by those legendary rockers Thin Lizzy fronted by the late and great Phil Lynott.

The Top Ten

1 The Boys are Back in Town

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

2 Jailbreak

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

Totally rad

3 Whisky in the Jar

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.

Best Thin Lizzy ever

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 epic

The live version is the best its my favorite song of all time :D

5 Waiting for an Alibi

This song should be in top three or five it's really good

Really good song great guitar - mneilan

This song should be higher up this list - mneilan

6 Don't Believe a Word

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.

Damn perfect song
Perfect music
Perfect lyrics

7 Dancing in the Moonlight

The Van Morrison influence stands out. Great song should be top 5.

Should be higher on the list

8 Still in Love with You

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.

9 Cold Sweat

Thin Lizzy rocks harder than any other band in this song! Why the hell isn't it higher?!

10 Cowboy 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...

To all dirty boys of the city...

The Contenders

11 The Sun Goes Down

Absolutely lovely song; my most favorite from Thin Lizzy, closely followed by Emerald.

12 Angel from the Coast
13 Roisin Dubh (Black Rose): A Rock Legend

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!

14 The Rocker
15 Bad Reputation
16 Fighting My Way Back
17 Sarah
18 Toughest Street in Town
19 Running Back

Beautiful Song. I guess ranks do not always match personal opinion. - ZackStarsky
