Rolling Stone wrote about this list of the top 100 best songs of 2022, “WHAT MADE A great song in 2022? Was it an irresistible beat and a sense of humor? An introspective, bittersweet dream? An absolute dance floor banger?
Was it lo-fi, high-res, loud, soft, twangy, poppy, sleek, distorted, hugely anthemic, or perfectly tiny? The answer was yes — all that and more. Or maybe it was a song that imperiously declared any and all doubters to be a bunch of munches. You’ll have to listen to all 100 songs here to be sure.”

npr’s 100 best songs of 2022 list
The npr.org website published the 100 best songs of 2022 list on Dec. 15, 2022. Let’s know what npr.org says about their 100 best songs of 2022 list.
The npr.org website wrote about the list of 100 best songs of 2022, “It took 50 people to make this list of 2022’s 100 best songs. Why put in that much effort, when algorithmically generated playlists can give a listener what they already know they want?
Because there’s more to a year than the insulated corners that, in the streaming era, can feel so cozy. That’s especially true in a year like this one, whose thrills, even with hindsight, are tough to organize into neat categories or hierarchies.
For the staff and contributors of NPR Music, making this list felt messy, but there’s an upside to the effort: We got together. We talked. We listened. We ended up making a ranked list of 100 songs that reflects the sprawling, energetic messiness of 2022.
Because the end of a year is a nice moment to celebrate what you love, but it’s the perfect time to listen to something outside your comfort zone. A guarantee: You’ll find something here that does the trick.”
