Chocolate Stains On My Pants

Thin Lizzy : Dancing in the Moonlight

On August 7 1977, Thin Lizzy returned to the U.K. charts with the single "Dancing in the Moonlight". The catchy tune would peak at #14 in the British charts and at #4 in the Irish charts. Bowie and T.Rex producer Tony Visconti would call "Dancing" one of the sexiest songs he'd ever produced. The band recorded the single and the album Bad Reputation in Toronto. The recording eventually saw the return of guitarist Brian Robertson who had been injured in a brawl and had missed the majority of the most recent tour. 

Robertson was back and you'll see him below, to the right of Phil Lynott,  in the official video for "Dancing in the Moonlight", filmed at an empty Hammersmith-Odeon.  The sax solo is played by Supertramp's John Helliwell.
