Parisienne Walkways – The Song
Parisienne Walkways is a song by guitarist Gary Moore that reached number 8 in the UK Singles Chart in May 1979. The song is featured on Moore’s album Back on the Streets and features a vocal from Thin Lizzy frontman, Phil Lynott, who co-wrote the song with Moore. Lynott also played bass guitar on the track, alongside Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey, thus reuniting the short-lived 1974 Thin Lizzy line-up which had recorded “Still in Love with You” and the single “Little Darling”. The melody of “Parisienne Walkways” is based on the jazz standard “Blue Bossa” by Kenny Dorham. It was Gary Moore’s signature song.
