We Will Be Strong

Album: Chinatown (1980)
Play Video

Songfacts®:

  • Running to 5 minutes 11 seconds, this Phil Lynott composition is the opening track on the 1980 Chinatown album, and is as good as melodic rock comes: great lead vocal, great harmonies with overdubs of Phil's voice, and the trademark Thin Lizzy duel lead with great riffs. Altogether simply great.

    Chinatown was described by music pundit Greg Prato as a letdown, making it the first bad album in history made up of 9 good tracks. >>
