Thin Lizzy’s 20 best songs, from wicked to freakin’ awesome

By Steve Newton

I’m sure to get some flak for not including the big hit, “The Boys Are Back in Town”, but I honestly don’t believe it’s one of Lizzy’s best tunes.

  1. Some very fine songs there, particularly Little Girl in Bloom. If I wrote a list it would be quite different, but I suspect that would be the case for all of us. Thanks for the post.
