  • Co-written with sometime Rainbow and Dio bass player Jimmy Bain and running to 4 minutes 11 seconds, "Dear Miss Lonely Hearts" is the first track from Phil Lynott's 1980 solo album, and his first single. It was also performed by his groups Thin Lizzy and Grand Slam.

    It goes without saying that neither Lynott or Bain ever needed to write to a lonely hearts column. >>
