Best Songs of 2022


Recommended Posts

Personally, I feel 2022 had plenty of great tunes but not as many great albums. Looking at my 2022 best songs list, not really surprised to see more of synthwave and modern rock tunes this time, two genres of music that I really enjoy as well, but also kinda reflects how these two genres have produced better songs in comparison to AOR and hard rock albums last year. Well that's just my opinion. 
Here's more or less my favourite 30. Have also included couple of singles as I don't see an album in the foreseeable future. In no particular order except my favorite song of the year which is 'Nightcry' by Ultraboss.

The Midnight - Heartbeat

Rob Moratti - Love

Friday Night Firefight - Bad Days

Dani Sylvia - Moonburn

Dayseeker - Crying While You're Dancing

Degreed - Falling Down

Scary Kids Scaring Kids - For Atlas (what a song! Thanks to Geoff) 

Nic Howell - Coffee & Contemplation

Josh Dally ft. All The Damn Vampires - London

Rain City Drive - Dreams

We Came As Romans - Holding The Embers

Palace - Westbound 

VHS Collection - Anyway (Crucial late entry lol. Based on Glen's recommendation) 

GATC - Clearing The Blur

Short Stack - Armageddon

Dayseeker - Homesick

The Band Camino - Song About You

Simple Plan - Slow Motion ( love the verses more than the chorus. It's the type of melody I love in pop punk tunes) 

Reckless Love - Outrun

Treat - Freudian Slip

NOTD ft. Nightly - About You

Holly Humberstone - Please Dont Leave Just Yet

Generation Radio - Before The Lights Go Out In Paradise

White Tyger - Heartbreak Hotel

The Midnight - Brooklyn.Friday.Love

The Summer Set - Street Lightning 

Stand Atlantic - Nails From The Back

The Midnight - Place Of Her Own 

Dayseeker - Dark Sun

Josh Dally - I Love You. Perfect pop song. Has already become one of my most-played songs.

Degreed - Turn Back

Moonrunner83 - Like We Were Kids

The Midnight - Heart Worth Breaking. Top 5 Midnight song IMO, too bad the rest of the album wasn't up to par.

Generation Radio - All Night To Get There

Futurecop! - Home

Threshold - Defence Condition

Ten - Immaculate Friends (Yes that's right!)

State Champs - Half Empty

Astronoid - Eyes

Love the song 'Half Empty'. 'Eventually' is another tune I like. Overall, not a bad album. 

Crazy how this synthwave genre has gradually expanded our tastes in music over the last few years. The impact is pretty huge I must say. Its become a genre that we share and talk about pretty often on this forum and also find in year-end favorite albums/songs list, atleast in many members' lists.

For sure! My love for synthwave originally came from modern AOR, with artists like Magic Dance and LeBrock bridging the gap. Then I found The Midnight and Timecop1983 and it was all over. :P

I think it also helped that I first started getting into it right before COVID hit...going down the rabbit hole of a new genre of music was one of the things that kept me sane early in the pandemic.

Some great tunes here and a small handful I don't know... going to check out Astronoid and Moonrunner83. That Nic Howell song is sensational too. But no album or anything? Just a single? 

I actually made a list, in a rough order too. Like Ponen, I had a single from an artist that I don't think will release this song on an album, probably ever, so I was comfortable having it in my list... because it was easily my favourite tune of the year, in a year of awesome tunes. I kept it to one per artist because I like sexy things;

1    .    Nightly - On your sleeve (coolest song of the year by a stretch, for me)

2    .    Dayseeker     - Homesick (as on Ponen's list)
3    .    Grand     -    Stone Cold

4    .    Scary Kids Scaring Kids - For Atlas )as per Ponen's list)
5    .    Degreed - Turn Back
