Approved Christmas Songs 1960 to 1979

Last edited 

  The evolution of Christmas music in the United States is a very broad and interesting topic. When we have European-only institutions of higher learning, this will make a fascinating PhD thesis.  I'm sure there are plenty of "histories of Christmas" extant on the internet, and in the printed culture, but very few of them are going to correctly name the driving forces behind the American Christmas spectacle. Fortunately the basic aspects of a family-centered, gift-giving, symbolically Nordic holiday are still largely intact. 

   In the music realm, the Jews always had financial influence, but only showed up in massive numbers in the 1880's. By 1920, they dominated organized crime, pornography, coastal print media, and movie making. They also had substantial control of the popular music industry. Tin Pan Alley was an area of New York City, entirely Jewish, that controlled music copyright, publishing and production of sheet music and records.  Their initial influence on Christmas music was to make money off of it. They created ditties, commercial jingles, similar to product advertisements, that took the Christ (and the family, and the yule) out of Christmas, and injected their unique worldview in.  They emphasized Santa Claus' gift-giving aspect, and if you look back one blog entry, at the list of the biggest Jewish Christmas songs, you will see they are pretty much all product pitches. Coincidentally, they also owned most of the department stores, so they'd release a shopping song, feature it in a movie, and create a feedback loop to reinforce their business concerns.  The Jews' group IQ in terms of g is not very high, but their 5d6 Mercantilism roll was certainly a Yahtzee.

  The Jews' big Christmas hits petered out by the 1960's. At this point, firmly in control of American pop music, the Jews stopped creating their own songs, and began pushing the big narrative of the 60's, which was negro christmas songs as integration propaganda. Nat King Cole, a white presenting, non-threatening negro was enlisted along with Sydney Poitier and Harry Belafonte as the face of social justice in the fifties. Within ten years, we were treated to the astounding sight of these same negroes flaunting and beating their white "wives".  Carla Thomas, Sammy Davis, Supremes, Stevie Wonder, and finally James Brown all released "Christmas" material.  Their songs are of predictable concern; my man has left me, can I get with you, etc.  (Kissin' By the Mistletoe, Please Santa Send My Man Home, et al) The 70's saw a decrease of negro Christmas songs, with the wikipedia singles list containing 49 negro songs from the sixties, but only 12 from the seventies. By that point, the goals of uplifting negro needs over whites to the top of the American to-do list, and forcefully integrating all American institutions were complete, and the fifties' crypsis unnecessary.

  With Jews gatekeeping popular music, it's hard to say what European-Americans would have been up to at this time. Our largest, and purest source of Christmas music was probably Country music. Only in this genre would you see our spirit coming through somewhat robustly.  Even this genre was dominated by exhaustion however, as much of it consisted of self-pitying music about alchoholic fathers, poverty, and dysfunctional families. Some of this caterwauling was certainly valid, but not joyous, inspiring or as beautiful as the more traditional songs such as Silent Night, Deck the Halls, or Hark the Herald Angels Sing.  This was the period of joke songs: (Dominick the Christmas Donkey, Monster's Holiday, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer), and muh drunk dad: (Daddy's Drinking Up Our Christmas - Commander Cody, Please Daddy, Don't Get Drunk - John Denver). The standout in this depressing genre was probably Johnny Cash's "Christmas As I Knew It", on 1963's Christmas Spirit album. This album has no foreign-influenced christmas songs. Recommended but quite dreary.

  On the bright side, we put out the springy Vince Guaraldi/Charlie Brown songs, the Dr. Seuss soundtrack, the upbeat Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys, and the mega-popular Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney. The Jews didn't write a single significant Christmas song this entire period, so while this multicultural, lovey-dovey pap is not our best work, it's easily superior to everyone else, as expected.

  Personal obscure highlights for me include: Jingo Jango by Axis veteran Bert Kaempfert , Pretty Paper by Roy Orbison, Christmas In My Hometown by Sonny James, Christmas at K-Mart by Root Boy Slim, Christmas Song by Angel, Merry Christmas, Darling by The Carpenters, the unintentionally counter-Semitic I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake, and best of all Ring Out, Solstice Bells by Jethro Tull.  

Here's the complete chart of European Christmas/Yule/New Years' Christmas music, approved by your own personal eternal Anglo for winter play. None are composed or performed by non-whites, although there can be mistakes with this much data. I have not listened to all these songs, and there are hundreds more not on the wikipedia list; feel free to add, subtract and advocate.
