Top 22 Songs of 2022

2022 is coming to a close and we’re looking back at the year in music that continued to see the lines blur between genres as artists continue to push their creative minds. Music also became more democratized as evidenced by songs that went viral this year from older songs like “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush, “Master of Puppets” by Metallica after gaining huge exposure from the Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’. Other songs like “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus also saw a comeback, thanks to the popular TikTok trend, but more current artists also found an audience as well, with the likes of Steve Lacy, Isabel LaRosa, GloRilla, Latto and others rising swiftly.
