This is our kind of throwback.

36 years ago today Phil Lynott released the video for his hit single, 'Old Town'.

The video shows Lynott walking through Dublin in the 1980s. The video is pure nostalgia featuring the Ha'penny Bridge, Grafton Street, the Great South and of course, Lynott having a pint in the Long Hall pub.

RTÉ released the memory today through its archive service.

Archived television and radio footage from Ireland's past is released daily on the site, so it's definitely a place to check out if you fancy a trip down memory lane.

The 'Old Town' video was produced by RTÉ's Dave Heffernan for their programme, 'Anything Goes'.

Besides from U2's video for 'Sweetest Thing', we can't think of a music video that shows off Dublin so well.
