While the past year has still felt a bit unpredictable, there is one thing we can definitely look forward to. There’s music for every mood, whether it’s a tune to lift you up on a bad day, a beat to cheer you up early in the morning, or a tune to give you the energy to push through to the end.
It’s no secret that stellar music can actually make or break a workout. That’s why, as we approach the end of the year, we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite tracks from 2022. Taylor Swift, Megan Thee Stallion, Harry Styles and more. We’ve also added songs that know every word, like Lizzo’s “About Damn Time,” Gayle’s remix of “abc,” and Elton John and her Britney Spears’ “Hold Me Closer.” Plus, songs like Duke & Jones and Louis Theroux’s “Jiggle Jiggle” and Armani White’s “Billy Eilish” are familiar to anyone who’s used TikTok this year.
Here you’ll find tracks that are almost entirely upbeat and will power your everyday life. This is especially helpful on dark, cold mornings as well as when you’re sleeping in bed. We kick things off with Beyonce’s “Break My Soul” before moving on to music by Doja Cat and Kim Petras. If bass-heavy beats aren’t entirely your style, there’s a track on this list too. MUNA’s “What I Want,” OneRepublic’s “I Ain’t Worried,” Phoenix’s “Tonight,” all get a spot. And after bangers from Bad Bunny, Charli XCX, and BLACKPINK, we end this playlist with a few hits from Maggie Rogers and Mitski. I think her last two songs are perfect for cooling down.
So without further farewells, turn up the volume and enjoy the 33 tracks that topped the (very unofficial) workout charts for 2022.
