What were the songs of the summer of 2022 in Canada?

Hate to break to you, but it’s September. By Tuesday, we’ll get into that batsh*t crazy period where everyone ramps up to 100 mph with work, school, and extra-curricular activities and keeps that pace until Christmas. It also means the Summer of 2002 is pretty much done, meaning it’s time to look back on the music that will define these last few months forever.

Spotify has released their official 2022 Songs of Summer lists consisting of the most-streamed tracks of the season. Thoughts?

  • Outside of “Running Up That Hill”, I have not heard any of these songs. Is it time for me to enter the Old Folks’ Home for Music? Please say it ain’t so.
