Not a lot of research for this post. Mainly it comes from memory.
To me there didn’t seem to be that many Christmas Songs released by popular artists of the 70’s. A few The Carpenters, Partridge Family, Temptations, Jackson 5 and a few others released albums. Other acts of the 70’s released Christmas Albums later in the career.
There were also a few that did release songs that are now played every years. The Carpenters’ Merry Christmas Darlin’, Greg Lake’s I Believe in Father Christmas, Bruce Springstein’s Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Paul McCartney’s Wonder Christmas Time, Elton John’s Step Into Christmas, and John Lennon’s Happy Xmas (War is Over) to name a few.
And let’s not forget the Barking Dog’s with Jiggle Bells.
Do you have any favorite Christmas Songs from the 70’s?
One of my favorites comes from the Temptations and their version of Someday at Christmas.
