The "Holiday at Hendricks" concert filled the halls with the sound of music, from modern melodies to classical tunes.

Before the doors had even opened for Sunday night’s Hendricks Chapel Holiday Concert, a line of people had already formed outside in hopes of grabbing the best seat in the house.

From Garth Brooks to Mariah Carey, this list has your guilty pleasures covered.

This list is meant to count down some of those wonderful holiday tunes that are awful. Now, I must say before any judgment is passed that I love all of these songs; but they are all hideous in their own unique way.

Josh Breeden and Leah Harrison team up again to bring you their mix of classical and popular Christmas tunes

According to Walgreens it’s been Christmastime since mid-October. These two writers think this is stupid. In protest we held out on writing a holiday playlist so we could give the pilgrims our undivided attention. Well, the turkey’s been devoured and as I type, Scrooged is on TV –– Santa’s time has come. We’ve compiled the ultimate mix of popular and classical tunes to put you in the credit card-swiping mood.

There seems to be a year-end list for everything nowadays. Why not the top nine items in Syracuse music for '09?
