So, regardless of how cynical or single you are, you have to acknowledge that great love songs slap. A cheerful love ballad is like a rom-com for your ears, and even if you’re not into love, sappy ‘n’ sweet tunes have a way of making you feel better.
Do you need a little more serotonin? The best love songs of 2022 will give you heart eyes (and may even have you groovin’ down the street like Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 500 Days of Summer, replete with your own pretend flash mob).
Sure, if you’re going through a breakup, you’d prefer listening to your father snore all night than listening to a romantic love song (IYKYK). However! Before you start bashing feel-good love songs, consider how few there are in comparison to Sad Girl SongsTM about rejected, lost, and broken love.
Sometimes all you want to do is enjoy the pleasure of being stuck without the mess, mmkay? (And, to be honest, these bops are better for lip-syncing into your hairbrush anyhow.) Here are the most romantic songs released thus far in 2022, featuring new songs by Lukas Graham, Charli XCX, The Weeknd, and more.
Here’s the List of Top 10 Love Songs of 2022
Thomas Rhett’s song “Angels”
Thomas Rhett has released three tracks from his new album, Where We Started, including “Angels” (out April 1). The country singer discusses the affection he believes he doesn’t deserve in this video.
“I don’t know why you were patient and wasted good savin’ on me / Maybe angels don’t always have wings / You shoulda slammed the door / Changed the lock and said adios / To my selfish heart, tore it apart and left me alone / Don’t know why you were patient and wasted good savin’ on me /
Avril Lavigne ft. black bear, “Love It When You Hate Me”

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift’s “The Joker and the Queen”
Although Ed Sheeran’s original song was released in 2021, this Taylor Swift-assisted remix from 2022 is even more enticing (especially considering the music video employs the same characters from their 2013 video for “Everything Has Changed”).
Michael Bublé’s “I’ll Never Not Love You”
This charming love song by Michael Bublé is as relaxing as a warm bubble bath, and the music video is a tribute to all of your favorite rom-com.
FKA twigs’ “oh my love”
