Online music publication Pitchfork on Monday released its top 100 songs of 2022. The list includes releases by Beyonce, Harry Styles, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Megan Thee Stallion, Taylor Swift, and others.

Pitchfork's cross-genre tradition to choose the best songs each year also includes the top albums and 15 best music books in the 2022 installment.

Listed below are five of Pitchfork's top song choices of the year.

Harry Styles's pop hit "As It Was" cracked the list at No. 100. Styles has been at arguably the height of his career this year, starring in the films "Don't Worry Darling" and "My Policeman," all while embarking on a global tour for two most recent album releases, "Fine Line" and "Harry's House." Pitchfork writer Amy Phillips calls the song "the kind of twinkly little confection that would easily get the indie kids pogoing at any local DIY dance night at any point in the last two decades."

"Tonight" sits at No. 98 on the list, a song created by the indie-electronic band Phoenix alongside indie-rock band Vampire Weekend's leadman Ezra Koenig. It is no surprise that the collaboration between artists who have been paving the way in their genres for the past decade earned a spot on the list. Pitchfork's Rob Arcand describes the song as, "A sobering, early-morning apology [that] inspires a fleeting moment of self-reflection as the vocalists pause, muse existentially about their endless partying, and ultimately resolve to do it all again, just one verse later." Arcand added that the track is "an endearing defense of the pleasure principle from two guys who have seen their share of debauchery."

Arctic Monkeys made the list at No. 65 with their song "Body Paint." The band saw their rise to fame in the early and mid-2000s marked by the band's 2007 album "Favourite Worst Nightmare" and 2013 release "AM." The album cover of "AM", which features a single sound wave across a black background, became a hallmark of the social media site Tumblr's fanbase. The band continues to draw in old and new fans alike, releasing their seventh studio album, "The Car" in October. Marc Hogan of Pitchfork calls their song "Body Paint" the album's "cinematic centerpiece" and an "emotive puzzle, obsessed with artifice and lingering smudges you can't wash away."

A song that topped the charts this year was Beyonce's pop-disco hit "Break My Soul." The famed singer, who began as part of the R&B duo Destiny's Child, has earned 28 Grammys across the course of her career. Her 2022 album release, "Renaissance" marked the comeback of dance music as the world continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. "Alien Superstar," a track on the album, has been listed at No. 5 on Pitchfork's list. Writer Sasha Geffen said the song "demands its listeners leave all psychic weight at the door," and "ushered in a sorely needed season of abandon and relief, serving as balm and catalyst at the same time."

Pitchfork's No. 1 pick for this year's top songs list was Alvvays' "Belinda Says." The Canadian rock-pop group released their third album "Blue Rev" in October. It comes years after the band's prior album successes including their 2014 debut self-titled album and 2017 record release "Antisocialites," which won a Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year.

Pitchfork's Jamieson Cox says the song's melody could "easily be repurposed within an antique music box," and that its lyrics describe "the moments in people's lives that defy clear articulation."

The list also includes Swift's "Anti-Hero," Megan Thee Stallion's "Plan B," Charli XCX's "Constant Repeat," and Drake's "Sticky." See the full list here.
