Jona Lewie - Stop the Cavalry

This has to be one of the strangest, least festive Christmas classics, but it is a classic nonetheless. Enjoy!

Did you know?
The song peaked at number three in the UK Singles Chart in December 1980, at one point only being kept from number one by two re-issued songs by John Lennon, who had been murdered on 8 December.

The song was never intended as a Christmas hit, but the line 'Wish I was at home for Christmas' as well as the brass band arrangements made it an appropriately styled song to play around Christmas time.
