You Will Always Find Him In The Kitchen At Christmas Parties

Although his funky 'You'll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties' was a hit for Jona Lewis in 1980 it was 'Stop The Cavalry' from later that same year that remains his enduring musical legacy. The English singer has admitted that he didn't set out for 'Stop The Cavalry' to be a Christmas song but given the release date it was inevitable that the central lines of 'wish I was at home for Christmas' and 'but it's very cold out here in the snow' would appeal to a December audience. Things were helped along nicely by the marketing team at Stiff Records (Lewis' record label) who added tubular bells to give it extra Christmas oomph. And so it has come to pass that 'Stop The Cavalry' consistently rubs shoulders with all the other Christmas greats. The promo video has a similar feel to Paul McCartney's 'Pipes of Peace', with that sense of longing while faraway from loved ones at Christmas permeating throughout.
