Old Town — Phil Lynott / The Corrs

When I think of Phil Lynott, I think of Thin Lizzy’s swaggering frontman, powering through “The Boys Are Back In Town”.

But there was a lot more to Phil Lynott than swagger. He also wrote the very tender “Old Town”, with Jimmy Bain. That song is a million miles away from what you might immediately think of as Thin Lizzy material.
