New Music from the Inbox Tuesday Edition (December 27, 2022) – Nerhys’ Top 5 from 2022!

It’s that time of year again where, instead of picking 6 new songs, I pick out my 5 favourites from the past 51 weeks. At 6 songs per week times 51 weeks, that’s a total of 306 songs to go through! In no particular order, these are my top 5 song picks from the past year.
