70s Music Christmas 1979

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 musicc Christmas Season we look at the music of Christmas Day 1979 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 comes from the 22nd December 1979.


Paul McCartney and Wonderful Christmastime

This record did not chart in the US, but in many places around the world its a Christmas must play record.
Paul was still in Wings, but this was a solo hit for him, and according to the Guinness book of records Paul has 60 gold discs, and sales 100 million just in the UK.

The very last No.1 of the 70s is the amazing Pink Floyd with Another Brock In The Wall (Part 2)
