B2: The Boys Are Back In Town
Everything that’s great about Thin Lizzy is in this song: the hard rocking swagger, the twin-guitar harmonies, Lynott’s innate sense of melody, and a wonderfully evocative lyric about boys and girls, drinking and fighting. Incredibly, when the band recorded The Boys Are Back In Town in 1976, they didn’t think it was anything special. But after US radio jumped on it, the song was a huge hit on both sides of the Atlantic. And over time it became something even bigger: one of the all-time classic rock anthems, and the song for which Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy will always be remembered.
Rafferty (NAZARETH singer)
