Two nights ago I referenced a singer named Jona Lewie. It’s unlikely many of you have heard of him, but I became a big fan of his right around 1980. It was his song “(You’ll Always Find Me in the) Kitchen at Parties” that got me hooked, but I found I liked most everything he released. In 1982, when I was a deejay, in Alaska, he released an album called “Heart Skips Beat” that I still play to this day.
There is one song on the album you might have heard. It gets a lot of airplay around the holidays because it has a Christmas reference. As you might have guessed by now, it’s called “Stop the Cavalry.” The version most commonly heard isn’t Jona’s original, but of a chorus singing it. Today’s photo is of me holding a 45 (remember those?) of Jona’s version. And embedded below is the music video, again Jona’s version.
Let me know if you are familiar with this song.
