Jona Lewie - You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties
As I'm spending tomorrow painting the kitchen this track's been going round and round in my head pretty much all day. It's another fine example of those oddball 80s records that really shouldn't work - bloke who can't sing much, very basic synths and a pretty downbeat subject (although...spoiler alert...there's a happy ending) - but somehow just do. This particular clip features an early appearance from the late, great Kirsty MacColl too.
PS: Just in case you have no idea who Jona Lewie is you'll probably be hearing a lot more from him over the coming weeks as he hit the big time with the even more downbeat Christmas classic Stop The Cavalry which reached number 3 in the UK charts and number 2 in Germany...
