Description

One of only 3 "Christmas" hits that you'll ever find me uploading... ;-)

It's Jona Lewie and his excellent Anti War hit "Stop The Calvary" appearing on the Dutch TV show TopPop from 1980.

-

"Stop the Cavalry" is a song written and performed by the English musician Jona Lewie.

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.

In an interview for Channel 4's 100 Greatest Christmas Moments, Lewie said that the song was never intended as a Christmas hit, and that it was a protest song. 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.
