70s Music Christmas 1971

The 70s music Christmas charts were so important in the 1970s, with not only the prestige of getting a Christmas hit, but a NUMBER One Christmas hit was the icing on the cake, the Christmas Cake.

During this 70s music  Christmas Season we look at the music of Christmas Day 1971 and highlight those Christmas records to stir the memory of the 70s music.

Having to use a bit of editorial control here to decide what was a Christmas hit, so if it does not match your criteria, apologies.

This Chart is from 25th December 1971.

Not much in the snow and Christmas tradition in this chart, but the No.1 was a Christmas novelty record, following on from a big hit with Grandad the previous year, another comedy actor the legendary Benny Hill managed to get the Christmas Number One with:-

Benny Hill and Ernie, (The Fastest Milkman In The West)


  1. I still have my Partridge Family Christmas Album... with attached Christmas Card. :)

  2. I hate to admit it but I think I have Marie Osmond Christmas card somewhere from about 1972

    1. Admit?? Seen her sing "Paper Roses" on Youtube? Great in every way!
