‘Empty rooms’ was re-released in 1985 after an earlier release in 1984 failed to chart. The track was slightly remixed and called the summer 1985 version’.

It seemed to be a successful strategy: this time around, the single actually charted and reached number 23 in the UK singles chart.

  • This is a song with which everyone who has ever had a broken romance will identify. Although he could shred with the best of them, “Empty Rooms” is basically a slow bluesy type track, and is widely regarded as Moore’s greatest guitar solo. It was co-written in 1984 with keyboard player/guitarist Neil Carter, who said the vocal track was originally laid down by Glenn Hughes – one-time bass player with Deep Purple – but this “obviously never made it out of the studio”. Of the track itself, Carter said “I always joke that song has bought my house, but I suppose it probably has over the years!”
  • “Empty Rooms” was released as a single in both seven inch and twelve inch formats, although the radio edit really doesn’t do it justice. Gary Moore died suddenly in Spain on February 6, 2011 aged only fifty-eight, leaving more than a mere room empty, but also leaving us many fine live recordings of this rock classic.
  • In Happy Together, an interview with Gary Moore and Phil Lynott by Derek Oliver published in a May 1985 issue of Kerrang!, Moore said of this song, it is “very personal. It wasn’t written because I felt sorry for myself, it was something I went through at one time – something that everyone goes through at one stage or another.

Loneliness is your only friend.
A broken heart that just won’t mend
is the price you pay.
It’s hard to take when love grows old.
The days are long and the nights turn cold
when it fades away.
You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You’ll never know the reason why she’s gone.
You see her face in every crowd.
You hear her voice, but you’re still proud,
so you turn away.
You tell yourself that you’ll be strong.
But your heart tells you,
this time you’re wrong.
You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You’ll never know the reason why she’s gone.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
All alone in an empty room.
Lonliness is your only friend, hooh.
Oh, she’s gone and you’re at the end.
