Songs of Christmas: Day 3 – Stop the Cavalry

Each year I start playing Christmas Music from the start of December.

Each day until Christmas (in addition to my other posts) I will post a link to a video of one of the Christmas tunes on my iPod. Some will be carols, others pop songs. Here is my third offering:

Day 3

Jona Lewie : Stop The Cavalry

A pop song written in the ’80s about the  (First World)War is an unlikely Christmas hit but it was. Apparently it was not intended as a Christmas song at all, but the line “Wish I was at home for Christmas” made it a success! A different sort of Christmas tune with a message in this the Centenary of the outbreak of WW1.
