Top 10 Best Thin Lizzy Songs

Thin Lizzy, the Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969, is known for their unique blend of hard rock and soulful lyrics. With hits like "The Boys Are Back in Town," "Jailbreak," and "Whiskey in the Jar," their iconic twin-guitar sound, courtesy of Phil Lynott and Brian Robertson, has influenced countless bands and musicians over the years.
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 the history of rock!

3 Whisky in the Jar

I really love this song. It's, to me, their greatest hit of all time.

4 Don't Believe a Word

Great rhythm and a poetic lyric. A song that touches 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!

5 Emerald

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

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

6 Dancing in the Moonlight

The Van Morrison influence stands out. Great song. Should be top five.

7 Waiting for an Alibi
8 Cold Sweat

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

9 Cowboy Song

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

In my opinion, their greatest song.

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 three.

The second-greatest Thin Lizzy song behind Boys are Back in Town. Surprised it wasn't on the list.

12 The Rocker
13 The Sun Goes Down

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

14 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.

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.

16 Angel from the Coast
17 Fighting My Way Back
18 Killer on the Loose
19 Hollywood
20 Wild One
21 Toughest Street in Town
22 Sarah
23 Running Back

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

Lyrically and musically magnificent!

24 Soldier of Fortune
25 Chinatown

Just listen to those guitar solos.
