Steve from Torrance, CaWhile "The Boys are Back in Town" was ubiquitous on rock radio in the late 1970s, this was the song that made me a Thin Lizzy fan. It should have been a huge hit, but was probably considered too "jazzy" by the rockers, and too "heavy" by the popsters. I also consider Bad Reputation to be their best album.
Marcus from Stockholm, SwedenThis is probably the best song ever written! Can't get enough of it.
Micael from Varberg, SwedenIf you listen closely around 1:45-1:46, when the line "... and I'm walking home" is sung, you can hear a whistling sound in the background.
Jim from Proctorville, Oh I've had the Live and Dangerous album since it was released and this is my all time favorite song by my all time favorite band. It's been 30 years and I still haven't tired of the whole album or this song.
Roddie from Waterford, Irelandalexander in London....Sorry but ur incorrect. King Harvests song "Dancing In The Moonlight" was indeed released in 1973. However Thin Lizzys song of the same name(apart from the subtitle) was released in 1977 and is an entirely different song..............for the FACTS on Philip and Thin Lizzy please refer to www.roisindubh.info where you will find all the facts. There are also many excellent links to other sources of the real facts
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
