Long-running music blogger Gorilla vs Bear put out its list of the top 50 albums of 2022 last week, and now he revealed his list of the 50 best songs of the year. Like the albums list, he didn't include any releases from his own label Luminelle, but says "but y'all know Magdalena Bay's dazzling Mercurial World deluxe bangers "All You Do" and "Unconditional" + at least a few of Enumclaw's soaring, heartfelt Save the Baby anthems objectively deserve to be up there."
