Best Thin Lizzy Songs

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

This song is a great soundtrack to just about any movie, however it's very underrated.

2 Jailbreak

Best Irish (music) Riff in history of Rock!

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

3 Whisky in the Jar

I really love this song... Its to me their greatest hit of all time.

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

At least the equal of "boys".

4 Emerald

Best one. Boys are Back in Town is a embarrassing and a bad representation (reputation? ) of Thin Lizzy's material.

This could perhaps be one of the best solos ever, next to Highway Star, Comfortably Numb, and Mr. Crowley.

5 Don't Believe a Word

Great rhythm and a poetic lyric. A song that touch your heart with the words but keeps you rocking with the music.

God that riff owns. The lyrics are brilliant as usual. This should be as well known as Boys are Back In Town.

Not a nice sample to show this amazing song!

6 Dancing in the Moonlight

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

7 Cold Sweat

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

That solo though

8 Cowboy Song

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.

This was always a great live track and coming of that classic "Jailbreak" album.

In my opinion, their greatest song...

To all dirty boys of the city...

9 Waiting for an Alibi

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

10 Bad Reputation
The Contenders
11 Still in Love with You

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

Consistently underrated, like so many Thin Lizzy songs, awesome song, should be top 3.

The second greatest Thin Lizzy song behind Boys are Back in town, surprised it wasn't on the list

12 Thunder and Lightning

This is the best way to go out. It's over 200 bpm, and you can picture the show ending with instruments being destroyed.

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

13 The Sun Goes Down

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

14 The Rocker
15 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.

16 Angel of Death

This is one of the metal songs this band recorded and I like it very much.

One of the best live song I ever heard the band perform.. just an awesome rock song

17 Angel from the Coast
18 Fighting My Way Back
19 Killer on the Loose
20 Hollywood

Best song ever

21 Wild One

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!

22 Toughest Street in Town

Best guitar solo

23 Sarah
24 Running Back

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

Lyrically & musically magnificent!
